IND 240 (50)

AUS 241/4 (43)

Australia won by 6 wkts

Australia 185-3 (Head 100, Labuschagne 41) Head launches Kuldeep over the leg side for successive boundaries. Two dsown the ground takes him to 99 – and then he reaches his hundred with an absurdly risky single! He would have been miles out with a direct hit.

Head lives on the edge, so in that sense it’s apt he reached his hundred with such a dodgy single, but actually this innings has been notable for his management of risk. He has surely never played with such destructive power and maturity.

With an extremely respectful nod to Clive Lloyd, Viv Richards, Aravinda de Silva, Ricky Ponting, Adam Gilchrist, Mahela Jayawardene, this is the greatest hundred in a men’s World Cup final: 95 balls, 14 fours and one six

Travis Head took one of the all-time great catches to give Australia a major boost in the Cricket World Cup final.

India captain Rohit Sharma demonstrated once again why he has been his nation's dangerman at the tournament, with the opener smashing Australia's bowlers in a frenetic start to the final in Ahmedabad.

After hitting Glenn Maxwell for six and four in the same over, Sharma got greedy and mistimed a delivery from the spinner, slicing away high into the offside. But it was far from a simple catch for Aussie batter Head. Running towards the boundary, he kept his eyes firmly on the ball and held it securely to dismiss the India skipper to jubilant scenes amonght Pat Cummins' men on the field.
