India Crush Australia By 36 Runs In A World Cup Encounter

World Cup 2019: India beat Australia by 36 runs in a world cup encounter on Sunday to give defending champions their 1st defeat in World Cup 2019.

Shikhar Dhawan hit a blazing century despite being out of form. Dhawan’s 117 and his 127-run opening stand with Rohit Sharma laid a perfect foundation for a big score. Virat’s consistency, Hardik Panday’s blistering hitting, and Dhoni’s power finished India’s innings at 352 for 5 after captain Virat Kohli won the toss on a sunny London morning at the Oval.

India then dismissed Australia for 316 in 50 overs to record their second straight victory of this World Cup after an opening win over South Africa.

Shikhar Dhawan hit his third World Cup hundred and Virat Kohli chipped in with 82. Hardik Pandya and MS Dhoni came with quickfire knocks to help India post 352.

India has moved to the third spot on the 10-team points table with 2 wins from as many games. This should be special, considering it’s only their 4th World Cup win over Australia in 12 meetings.
