In minimum 80 overs are bowled today; i.e. 480 deliveries and we have two batters. Only if new wicketkepper batsman KS Bharat Bharat can hold his wickets at his end from this fierce Aussie bowling attack and Rahane at is till lunch, wear bowlers and then attack. #WTCFinal2023
exhaust the bowlers and in the meantime; guard wickets and gain confidence. For now 5 wickets are remaining is the mindset and not we lost 5 wickets. Wait for the bad deliveries and until then let the score keep ticking in ones and twos. Rahane will mentor & steer #WTCFinal2023
what really happens if match tied? Draw? Joint winners? Rain is predicted as well during 4th ans 5th day #WTCFinal2023

In January 1999, a 24-year old Ricky Ponting held a press conference with a blackened eye.

He told the media he had a drinking problem.

He divulged that the black eye was the result of a drunken brawl in a club and that he would be seeking counselling.
Most people saw a careless brat not valuing the opportunity to play for Australia.

Few saw a young man who had the courage to face the media with a black eye and concede he had a problem.

The young man would eventually take Australia to its greatest heights.
We are in December, well into the yearly Australian summer. I remember as a kid, I would invariably have a 5 o'clock alarm throughout these months to watch the magic of Glenn McGrath, Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist and the likes.
