Indian cricketer Ravichandran Ashwin has lauded Australia calling them giants of modern day cricket after the yellow brigade lifted the World Cup for the sixth time thrashing India on Sunday.
Ashwin, who sat in the reserve bench for most of the tournament, posted on X,Mighty mighty heartbreak last night. Everyone in the team had several days to remember during this campaign and special mentions to @imVkohli @MdShami11 @ImRo45 and @Jaspritbumrah93.
However I cant help but applaud the giants of modern day cricket Australia. What they did on the field yesterday was just unbelievable . Congrats on their 6th World Cup win.

India, who were the best team in this edition of the World Cup until the final, on Sunday failed to dominate with batting getting bowled out for 240 in 50 overs.
Though the Indian pace battery looked fierce in the opening overs picking three Australian wickets, the visitors silenced the crowd when Travid Head (137 off 120 balls) and Marnus Labuschagne (58 not out off 110 balls) took the team to home.
