India and Australia are locking horns in the ongoing high-voltage final of the ODI World Cup 2023, at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The Aussies have scored 99 runs for the loss of 3 wickets in 19 overs, having Marnus Labuschagne and Travis Head there in the middle at the individual scores of 43 and 13 runs, respectively. Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah have scalped 1 and 2 wickets, respectively for India.
Meanwhile, the reaction of Aussie batter Mitchell Marsh after his dismissal has also gone viral over social media; it has also left cricket fans in a lot of speculations. It all happened when Marsh nicked and got out on Jasprit Bumrah’s delivery in the fifth over, getting caught by the wicketkeeper KL Rahul.
Subsequently, on his way back to the pavilion from the crease after getting dismissed, Marsh winked towards KL Rahul; now, the video of this particular moment is also making rounds on social media as soon as it was shared by a few cricket fans over X (formerly Twitter).
