Oct 08, 2023 09:58 PM IST

KL Rahul hit the winning six to guide India to victory against Australia in their inaugural match in World Cup 2023.

India kicked off their World Cup 2023 campaign by defeating Australia by 6 wickets at the MA Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) in Chennai. Despite a shaky start that saw India lose three wickets within the first two overs, the stellar partnership of 165 runs between Virat Kohli and KL Rahul proved to be a game-changer. Virat Kohli scored 85 runs off 116 balls but got out in 37th over of the match. KL Rahul smashed 97 runs off 115 balls and hit the winning six, thereby becoming the Man of the Match.
