Australia seal record sixth title! Moody and Kumble look back at the final

Australia are World Cup champions once again, defeating India by six wickets in front of 92,453 fans at Narendra Modi Stadium to lift the coveted trophy for a sixth time.

Travis Head pummelled India’s world-class bowlers during the run chase, scoring a masterful 137 (120) to help Australia chase the 241-run target with 42 balls to spare.

The 29-year-old smacked 15 boundaries and four sixes during his heroic knock, becoming the seventh cricketer and third Australian to score a century in a World Cup final.

Head, who missed the first half of the tournament with a wrist injury, combined with Marnus Labuschagne for a 192-run partnership for the fourth wicket, rescuing Australia after an early collapse of 3-31 during the Powerplay. It was the second-highest partnership in World Cup finals.

It completes a triumphant six months for Pat Cummins’s Australians, who won the World Test Championship final in June and retained the Ashes on foreign soil in July.
