WTC final hangs in balance

The ongoing WTC final between India and Australia is highly competitive so far. Rohit Sharma won the toss earlier and elected to bowl first. In what came out as a shock to many, Ravi Ashwin, the world's number 1 Test bowler was dropped for the WTC final against Australia,

India started their bowling quite fiercely, removing Usman Khawaja early on at just 2 runs. Australia however steadied their inning and continued adding runs to the scoreboard. At the end of the 41st over, the Aussies find themselves at 149/3 with Steve Smith (29) and Travis Head (43) taking the team to a good total. With a lot of game still to be played, the final could end in either team's favour. It would be interesting to see which teams manages to get the result in their bag.
