At the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, Australia won their sixth ODI World Cup, defeating India by six wickets.

After ten straight wins, India was the overwhelming favourite to win the tournament, but Australia proved to be the superior team in the end, largely because of a century by Travis Head.

India, who were vying for their third one-day international world championship, were far from their best in a competition that they had dominated by winning nine out of nine games in the group stage and then thrashing New Zealand in an exciting semifinal at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium
