Sunil Gavaskar Criticizes Kohli and Rahul: India lost the World Cup final to Australia in a devastating fashion. Despite being the favorites to win the tournament, India slipped down in the ultimate match when they tried to step over Australia, and the outcome was getting knocked out of the World Cup.
India had a tough time increasing their run rate, even with a strong start from Captain Rohit Sharma. The situation worsened after Rohit got out, followed by Shreyas Iyer. Scoring boundaries became a challenge for Virat Kohli and the next batsman, KL Rahul. They even struggled with singles and doubles.

Surprisingly, Kohli and Rahul, known for their aggressive play, couldn’t effectively deal with the part-time bowling of Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, and Mitchell Marsh. Sunil Gavaskar, the player turned commentator, questioned their strategy, suggesting they should have tried to score against these occasional bowlers.
In the end, Australia secured their sixth World Cup trophy by winning the final by 6 wickets.
“I said during the match, and I am saying it again after the proceedings. Why KL Rahul and Virat Kohli didn’t hit boundaries against Glenn Maxwell, Travis Head, and Mitchell Marsh. They are not regular bowlers, and Kohli and KL should have tried scoring runs against them”.Sunil Gavaskar
