Chennai. India has made a winning start in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023. India registered a 6-wicket win against Australia at the Chepauk Stadium in Chennai on Sunday. Australia gave a target of 200 runs, which India achieved in 41.2 overs at the loss of 4 wickets. The Indian team, which set out to chase the target, did not have a good start. India lost three wickets for just 2 runs. Ishan Kishan was dismissed by Mitchell Starc in the first over. At the same time, Josh Hazlewood trapped captain Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer in the second over. All three players were out on zero. In such a situation, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer took the lead and made India’s sinking innings. Both of them made a strong partnership of 165 runs for the fourth wicket. Kohli became the victim of Hazlewood in the 38th over. He played an inning of 85 runs in 116 balls with 6 fours. Rahul remained unbeaten after scoring 97 runs in 115 balls. He hit 8 fours and 2 sixes. Hardik Pandya scored unbeaten 11 runs in 8 balls. Rahul and Pandya made an unbroken partnership of 34 runs for the fifth wicket.
Earlier, Australia captain Pat Cummins won the toss and decided to bat first. However, this decision of the captain did not prove to be correct, because the team could score only 199 runs in 49.3 overs. For India, Ravindra Jadeja took 3 wickets, while Kuldeep Yadav and Jasprit Bumrah took 2 wickets each. R Ashwin, Hardik Pandya and Mohammad Siraj got one success each. The first blow to Australia came in the form of Mitchell Marsh. David Warner scored 41 runs. Steve Smith was bowled on 46 runs. Marnus Labuschagne could score 27 runs. Alex Carey could not even open the account. Even Glenn Maxwell could not walk. Cameron Green was also out cheaply. Captain Pat Cummins was out after scoring 15 runs. Adam Zampa returned to the pavilion after scoring 6 runs.
