KATHMANDU, Nov 19: India has given Australia a target of 241 runs to win the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023.

After losing the toss and being invited to bat first, India were bowled out for 240 runs in 50 overs at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

India was under pressure after scoring 86 runs in 10.2 overs at the loss of three wickets, but Virat Kohli and KL Rahul steadied their innings with a partnership of 67 runs for the fourth wicket.

KL Rahul top-scored with 66 but hit only one boundary in 107 balls. India’s star batsman Virat Kohli made 54 after India captain Rohit Sharma struck a fluent 47 off just 31 balls opening the innings.

Australia’s left-arm quick Mitchell Starc took 3-55 and the visiting team’s captain Pat Cummins, who won the toss, a miserly 2-34 in his maximum 10 overs.
