Shubman Gill posts Two-Word tweet Following India’s WTC Final Loss to Australia


India struggled with the bat on Sunday, being bowled out for 234 in a 444-run chase against Australia in the World Test Championship final.

India’s batting performance was forgettable on Sunday, as they were bowled out for 234 in the World Test Championship final against Australia. India required 280 on Day 5 with seven wickets in hand, but were bowled out before the first session was over. Nathan Lyon and Scott Boland were the standout bowlers, taking four and three wickets respectively. Australia became the first team to win all four ICC titles, while India missed another opportunity to win their first ICC trophy since 2013.

Shubman Gill, India’s opening batter, came to Twitter following the game and shared a touching message. He posted a photo of Team India, “Not finished.”

Earlier on Day 4, Gill was caught in the slips by Cameron Green off Scott Boland’s bowling, but replays revealed that the ball had hit the ground when the fielder made contact. The on-field umpires were unsure about the event, but the third umpire opted to call him out, sparking a big dispute.

The kid batter rushed to Twitter and tweeted a photo of the catch with a strange comment that featured the ‘facepalm’ emoji. Virender Sehwag, Ravi Shastri, and many fans questioned the TV umpire’s decision.

In terms of the match, this was India’s second defeat in two WTC finals, having lost to New Zealand in the first edition in 2021.

Scott Boland ignited a stunning collapse as Australia defeated India by 209 runs in the World Test Championship final on Sunday at The Oval. India resumed on 164-3 after setting a record 444 to win. However, they were bowled out for 234 after losing seven wickets for 70 runs in 24 overs before lunch on the fifth day. Boland struck first, taking two wickets in one over, including the coveted scalp of Virat Kohli, on his way to 3-46 in 16 overs. The tail was then cleaned off by off-spinner Nathan Lyon (4-41).
