Pat Cummins’ Tactical Brilliance and Execution Undid India in World Cup Final: R Ashwin

1 min read

R Ashwin believed India would win the World Cup on November 19, but tactical brilliance of Australia captain Pat Cummins meant India finished as runners-up. Ashwin shared this insight on his YouTube channel. Cummins strategically changed his approach and bowled to a leg-side field without a mid-off, ultimately finishing with figures of 2 for 34. The slow pitch influenced Cummins’ decision to bowl first, as black soil on Indian pitches becomes better to bat under lights. Ashwin also addressed the issue of the quality of Kookaburra balls used in bilateral series and IPL as compared to ICC events.
