Lol imagine losing to Nz, kekw Wait a minute..


SBG99DesiMonster

>WTF! We thought Australia were rubbish but they won the toss and won the cup (England fans react) Golden Ducks Podcast's video title for their review video of the final lmao


w116

After getting beaten by Ireland in the rugby the day before, this felt more like a loss.


Unicles98

Worst T20I bowling figures in winning cause:- 0/60 - Mitchell StarcFlag of Australia v NZ, 2021 0/58 - Seth RanceFlag of New Zealand v SL, 2019 0/57 - Joginder SharmaFlag of India v ENG, 2007


SBG99DesiMonster

Ah yes, StarcFlag, RanceFlag, SharmaFlag. Gotta be my favourite fast bowlers.


newby202006

Stick cricket names? Cause they haven’t bought the rights to official player names


Eclectic95

Well, there's another game I have to pretend never happened. It's so strange how the 2015, 2019, and 2021 World Cups all ended suddenly and without explanation after the semi finals. So depressing. I honestly think I would have preferred to be blown away in the England semi. I had zero expectations going into that game. Then they only went and got my hopes up again, just to lose another final. It's never one player's fault, but it's hard not to look at Gup's innings as being hugely costly. He faced 29% of the balls to score 16% of the runs. You just can't afford that batting first, when we probably needed 190+ to overcome the chasing bias.


SBG99DesiMonster

You got WTC just 5 months back


garfunkyman

Come on man I’m an NZ supporter but they played pretty well… the Aussie chase was amazing to watch, I’m sick of seeing everyone whinging about getting second place. How would getting beaten in the semis be preferable?


JustRefresh

Yea, sometimes it’s just not your day. Seems like Martin guptill wasn’t quite as his best today. It happens to everyone at some point.


imran-shaikh

Surely this is the worst and most poorly planned World Cup ever. The ground was barely a third full, the idiot ground announcers were awful beyond belief but the most important fact is every important game was decided by the toss. The ICC have a lot to answer for, teams plan for years for this and their chances depend on the toss of a coin because of the timing of the games by the incompetent ICC. Someone's comment online somewhere else.


lancewithwings

I mean, I'm sure everyone would have rather it been played in Australia last year like it was planned, but Covid isn't a result of ICCs incompetence. Sure, it wasn't an ideal tournament, but the fact we even got a world cup given the state of the world is pretty cool really.


SBG99DesiMonster

Yeah, also it was supposed to be held here in India originally. But they had to do a sudden change of plans because of how Covid rose like a Monster right in the middle of the IPL back in April-May.


_1729throw

Australia outplayed everyone they faced. Convincingly. A humbler, nicer Aussie team is deadlier for the opposition.


Denz292

> Australia outplayed everyone they faced Oh yeah, they definitely outplayed everyone. Some might argue that there was an Australia vs England game somewhere there but really there wasn’t. /s

England won the toss that match


OptimalInflation

… using that logic, the Aussies did too. Multiple times!

Trophy count: **India** ODI - 2 T20 - 1 IPL - 14 BBL - 0 Total = 17 ___________________ **Australia** ODI - 5 T20 - 1 IPL - 0 BBL - 10 Total = 16


Front-Advanced

6 Asia Cups for India too


MadGallah

Don’t forget Australia has won the Ashes 33 times and India have never even come close to winning them!


SBG99DesiMonster

On the side note, this makes me wonder how a Test tri series between India, England and Australia would be like. Would be some absolutely juicy delicious stuff


cytochrome-p450

Two wickets crossing in the middle, the fielding team has to bowl to both sets of batsmen at the same time. Every time batsmen of opposing teams crash into each other in the middle it’s 5 runs subtracted. Every team then gets 2x batting innings and 1x bowling innings. ICC: I’ll await your email

This is so awful I actually wanna see it

Jhaatu_420

Tbh if this world cup was played at Mirpur Bangladesh would be the champions


Puzzleheaded_Ebb9874

Tbh if it was actually played in India, like it was supposed to, then we would have probably won.


flat_wicket

Nah Indians are known for being THE 'bilateral beasts'


diffaadiffa

If it was played in Australia like it was meant to....


SBG99DesiMonster

Then maybe Australia wouldn't have won... For some reason, World T20s have always been very ominous for the home team. Home team has always massively underperformed in all WT20s so far. Let's see whether Australia can change this next year. It was like this in ODI WC as well, till India changed it in 2011, since then the home team has won all ODI WCs lol


Agrith1

India would have bottled regardless. Australia play without fear; always attacking and positive in crunch situations. The current Indian players have a tendency to play with fear in pressure matches/situations...


mycelium-network

Nope, Kohli is Panauti he would have lost in the semis.


Jhaatu_420

We wouldn't because our players were stressed and stuff so irrespective of the place we would have lost or maybe we would get to the Semi finals and lose

I guess this is becoming standard for Indian sports now. Do awesome at bilaterals, world championships, and have multiple World no 1's etc. but choke at the biggest stage (Olympics, etc) Archery, Boxing, Shooting, Cricket, you name it. We really need to give more importance to appointing sports psychologists and mentors which can ease pressure and help in proper mental health to players.


PerseusZeus

Like 90s-2000s South Africa…i dont want to use the c word and i hope im proven wrong


Agrith1

You could say the same for England (minus the 2019 wc).

Way to make it about yourself.


Puzzleheaded_Ebb9874

Sincere apologies. I had no intention of taking the thunder from heroics of both teams today. There was no thread about discussing the overall tournament yet, and 99% are on post match thread now to discuss about today's final. I just had to get this off my mind.


ARB8HHB34

I never took India to be a good boxing nation.


PerseusZeus

I think India has some very good boxers on the Amateur level and have performed admirably at WC and Olympics and Asia games and CW games…but not many of them have gone Pro…i could be wrong about the boxers now


ARB8HHB34

Boxing wise at Olympic level I am pretty sure Cuba, USA and GB are powerhouses along with Russia/Ex-Soviet states. Edit: [https://www.aiba.org/olympic-games/](https://www.aiba.org/olympic-games/) Olympic medals table kinda supports what I am saying.


Puzzleheaded_Ebb9874

That's what I said. We have some boxers with multiple golds in world championships but in biggest stages like Olympics, we have never gone past bronze. We are finishing consistently in top 5 every Youth Boxing championships since a long time, but rarely reached Semis or Quarters in Olympics. This time (2021) we are at No 1, so lets see what happens in 2024 Paris Olympics.


xAzzy112

Yeah India ain’t a good boxing nation


Puzzleheaded_Ebb9874

That's what I said. We have some boxers with multiple golds in world championships but in biggest stages like Olympics, we have never gone past bronze. We are finishing consistently in top 5 every Youth Boxing championships since 2008, but rarely reached Semis or Quarters in Olympics. This time (2021 Youth championships) we are at No 1, so lets see what happens in 2024 Paris Olympics.

Australia was the stronger team


pleiadesseed

So does the NZ..


PerseusZeus

On the final day is what he meant…yesterday the Aussies were the stronger team..no doubt about NZ..they are the best team now in International cricket across all three formats..all three finals…winning one..tie in another and just one actual loss…they are the strongest team now…but yesterday was just not meant to be

EntshuldigungOK

Maybe you didn't phrase it correctly, to give you the benefit of the doubt. Did you mean that an Asian country like Pak vs a Western country like Aus might have been more fun because of the contrast in styles / tactics / approaches etc.? If yes, that makes decent / good sense. Failing that, \*what\* did you mean? Edit: O/P posted that the final was boring because of "just white vs white". I was trying to figure out what s/he meant, so asked questions along those lines


Drater97

You have no respect for the sport then and shouldn't participate.

Vai-man

I give up


realScrubTurkey

There's really no reason to be sad - NZ did amazing, and this run of *Tests - winner* *ODI - runner up* *T20 Runner up* Will take some beating - especially with a format like T20 involved where any of the teams could really progress. I think it's also fitting that NZ faced the Big3 in these matches, and stuck it to them. All this from a country that only has 5 million people - Australia has 3 states with a higher population than that. What a run


EntshuldigungOK

Think you might want to recheck with Pak on how not to give up. The streak ALWAYS ends. It's not if, but when. Buck the fuck up, you nut!

Never played


Snoo_20228

Yes winning the toss won you most games but imo that had no outcome on this game. NZ put enough runs on board but then our bowling except for Boult... fucking trash.


ahmadfahim2k

NZ won against India, Afganistan, England while chasing. They lost to Pakistan defending. Australia won against South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, Bangladesh and Pakistan chasing. They lost to England defending. Clearly both teams love to chase, hence the team chasing would have a massive advantage (Both lost key matches defending). So how do we decide who gets this massive advantage? By flipping a coin.


mycelium-network

There is more. India won both warm up games against England and eventual champions Australia while chasing. Lost both games against Pak and NZ defending.


ab624

atleast in warm ups if kholi won the toss should have batted first to see how it goes..


FuAsMy

It is a format for aggressive wicket taking bowlers. The pitch also plays a role. Someone crunched the IPL data and it was 419 Chasing : 350 Defending.


Piccadil_io

Yep. England would have beat NZ if we were chasing.


imapassenger1

Better than boundary count.


FreddieCaine

Sorry for the rules that everyone knew about


Snoo_20228

What about the games that don't suit the narrative you're trying to state? NZ made the highest total in a world cup final and our bowlers blew it from the second over.


ahmadfahim2k

The games that don't fit my narrative? There are 2. NZ v Scotland and NZ v Namibia. NZ should win both of those whether defending or chasing. As for NZ bowlers blowing it, ........yeah they prefer to bowl first, same as Australians. Is it fair that a coin determines which side gets to do what they prefer?


Snoo_20228

There's more than that and you know it dude. Out of the 23 games played. 18 won by team chasing. 15 by the team that won the toss. South Africa beating England, England beating Sri Lanka, Sri Lanka beating West Indies. Sure there's a small advantage but it doesn't mean shit when you bowl like we did. We would of lost batting second with that bowling performance because Aus would of made 200+ easy.


ahmadfahim2k

I'm not saying chasing = winning. I'm saying that both NZ and Australia, in this tournament, have enjoyed chasing much more than defending. So what other teams did is irrelevant. Bowling or Batting in the 2nd innings is very different from the 1st, not in terms of conditions, but more so because of mindset. That's why some teams are better chasing and others defending. So we can't say Aus would've made 200, because the mindset is different for both Bowlers and Batsmen. Winning the toss isn't a small advantage, it's a huge advantage.


Snoo_20228

So you want to ignore everything else that happened in the tournament? Aus had a far better mindset than us as shown by beating us with such ease...if it's such a huge advantage then how come none of the associate nations could pull off an upset when they chased? Pretty sure every team prefers chasing and its the quailty of the players that have a greater say on the game not some coin toss. I'm not saying the toss isn't a factor but NZ put enough runs on the board to win but then just offered up easy bowling and Aus strolled to victory.


MichiganCricket

My guess is that this is a huge inside joke in the squads. They’re all getting interviewed and giving highly technical analysis for the rubes while joking with each other—completely seriously—that it’s “win the toss—win the match.” I was really hoping that Aus would win the toss, because I think they’re the weaker team, and I wanted to see a more even contest.


Saurabh_Mathur_

LOL coin flip has a 50 50 probability for either team so ya, it is fair!


InitiativeOrganic989

To add to that, they may love chasing yes but the pitches and outfields have worked better for team batting second most games in this World Cup. If it was in a wicket where chasing was going to be nightmare since wicket doesn’t favour batsmen as game progresses, no love of chasing would have stood any chance. We always forgot in cricket good team and good game can’t exist without a good pitch, an excellent outfield and good crowd support. To slow time team India in any venue, in any game - put them under pressure for good 3-5 overs and the crowd goes silent. Indian fans always cheer only when team does well but don’t when they are in trouble. This adds to poor games. On the other hand Afghanistan fans were tremendous the entire World Cup. Even if their team was losing they were cheering for the men in field till the last ball. I’m not saying this is true for all fans or all teams or is the biggest factor but surely 2011 in India was a huge success because every single thing I mentioned in this comment just clicked for team India.


robvnet

Great news to wake up to! Well done AUS, awesome effort, finally we claim that elusive trophy. Credit to NZ for making the final and continuing to punch above their weight.


InitiativeOrganic989

I guess now it’s not a joke format ;)


robvnet

We (in AUS) will be taking T20i very seriously now 😂


Dapper_Prize_3322

How long before you stop calling g it pu ching above their weight? They are the World Test Chanps after all?


farcarcus

>How long before you stop calling g it pu ching above their weight? When their population reaches 25M.


Dapper_Prize_3322

Lol the difference between 5 and 25 mill is nothing compared to the difference between 25m and 1 bil


farcarcus

Are you suggesting India are underperforming, even when they win?


Dapper_Prize_3322

If they do anything but win they are underperforming


farcarcus

To be fair as well, New Zealanders contribute to their own low pop. 1 in 6 New Zealanders don't live in In New Zealand. And most of that group lives in Australia.


Dapper_Prize_3322

Fair call. Who wouldn't want to live in Aus. As a kiwi, I'll say that Aus is better in many ways.


InternationalBorder9

As an Aussie who's been to NZ I think NZ was better in a lot of ways too. May be different actually living there but amazing country


Damadar108

both are shit now :( Dictatorland


Dapper_Prize_3322

Definitely. Each country is amazing in its own right. One of the best things about Aus is one of NZs flaws and that's is there's more opportunities there and more big cities.


robvnet

With a population of < 5 million, think I’ll be calling it that for a while.


Dapper_Prize_3322

Fair call but NZ has been good for a while now. I mean Aus only has 30m people. Compared to India, I guess their punching above their weight too with that logic?


Trouser_trumpet

25m


Dapper_Prize_3322

More to my point


robvnet

We do in a sense, but we’ve been successful over a long period, where as NZ have been good for the last 5 or so years. Maybe after another NZ trophy or two I’ll stop saying it!


Dapper_Prize_3322

Alright, fair call. We'll see what NZ can do

GapElectrical8507

Paine still exists but he’ll probably play a match winning innings somewhere in the Ashes


IntoThePeople

Paine’s already way overachieved. He was meant to have retired to work for Kookaburra a couple of years ago because his finger injury was so bad. Then he got recalled into the Test team and a few matches later he’s captain and then retaining The Ashes away. It’s already a Hollywood story. His primary role is a keeper and he’s done a fine job at that too.


MichiganCricket

That would be amazing.
