If we had scored so many runs, we would have won. Australian player’s statement


Team’s fast bowler Josh Hazlewood has given a big reaction on this. He said, “If 250-260 runs had been scored on this pitch, it would have been an equal score and Australia would have won.

Team India defeated Australia by 6 wickets in its first match of the World Cup 2023. After winning the toss and batting first, Australia was all out for 199 runs in 49.3 overs. For India, Ravindra Jadeja took 3 wickets for 28 runs. For India, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav took two wickets each. India achieved the target easily with the help of half-centuries from Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.

If we had scored more than 250 runs, we would have been much ahead. Josh Hazlewood.

Australia won the toss in Chennai and decided to bat first. At the same time, Josh Hazlewood believes that if more than 250 runs had been scored, the Australian team could have won. Josh Hazlewood said in the press conference after the match.

This was definitely a very low score. I don’t remember what the score was, but I think we were 110 for two. I am not saying that runs had to be scored quickly in the beginning, but runs could have been scored in the last 10-15 overs. If we had scored 260,250 runs, it would have been a very different match. We had taken three wickets early and with this many runs, we would have been much ahead.
