Australia thrashed unbeaten India in the final to lift their 6th World Cup trophy on Sunday at the Ahmedabad cricket stadium.
The visitors secured an impressive seven-wicket win against the hosts while chasing India’s 241-run target.
Travis Head scored 137 and shared a fourth-wicket stand of 192 with Marnus Labuschange (58 not out) as Australia chased down a modest target of 241 with seven overs to spare.
Head’s century was only the seventh in a final in the 48-year history of the World Cup, but the third by an Australian following match-winning efforts of 149 by Adam Gilchrist in 2007 and 140 not out by Ricky Ponting in 2003.
