IND vs AUS Live Score, WTC Final 2023: Travis Head (146) and Steve Smith (95) unbeaten; Australia close Day 1 at 327/3

India vs Australia Live Score, WTC Final 2023: Travis Head scored a century while Steve Smith inched closer to his own ton as Australia remained in control against India at the end of Day 1. Head and Smith kept Australia ticking, posting 327/3 at stumps after India had struck an early blow after lunch when Mohammed Shami snapped up Marnus Labuschagne.

Earlier, Australia had scored 73/2 at lunch at the Oval on Wednesday. India took out the on-song David Warner at 43 right before the break while Usman Khawaja fell for a duck courtesy of Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Siraj respectively. This was after Rohit Sharma and Co have left out the world’s top-ranked Test bowler, Ravichandran Ashwin, and have decided to bowl first in the World Test Championship Final against Australia.

India and Australia will compete for the greatest prize in Test cricket as the two face off in the second World Test Championship Final. The five-day one-off Test match has a reserve day in place in case rain intervenes the match just like it did the last time when India played New Zealand in 2021 at Southampton.
