The fifth match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Indian spinners dominated this match. India has decided to go with three spinners and Rohit Sharma has done the job. The spinners have warned the Australian batsmen to eat all four. Three spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav have got a place in the team. In reply, Australia could score only 199 runs for 10 wickets in 49.3 overs.

David Warner scored 41 runs in 52 balls while Steve Smith scored 46 runs in 71 balls. After this, no batsman could do anything special and kept losing wickets one after the other. All the Australian batsmen had to struggle against the Indian bowlers.

Barring Warner and Smith, the rest of the Australian batsmen have failed miserably against the Indian bowlers. The Kangaroo team had high expectations from Mitchell Marsh, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, wicketkeeper batsman Alex Carey and Cameron Green but these batsmen flopped miserably. Marsh and Carey failed to open their account in today’s match. Labuschagne was out after scoring 27 runs, Maxwell 15 and Green 8 runs.

Jadeja was destructive to the Indian spinners during the match. For India, Ashwin, Jadeja and Kuldeep took three wickets each. Ravindra Jadeja scored the most runs for India. He took three wickets in his quota of 10 overs. Kuldeep Yadav got two wickets.
