London [UK], June 7 (ANI): Ahead of the ICC World Test Championship final against India at The Oval on Wednesday, the Australian team took to artificial intelligence (AI) and the result was a bizarre outcome to the title clash.
"We asked AI to predict the outcome of the WTC 23 final and the results were, ahhh, interesting...," said the Instagram post made by cricket.com.au.
Reading the result, skipper Pat Cummins said, "Australia and India took on a nerve-wracking battle. Australia chasing a challenging target, had an unconventional strategy. Their batting order was reversed, adding an element of surprise to the contest."Josh Hazlewood continued, "Josh Hazlewood and Nathan Lyon, the unlikely opening pair, took guard. Hazlewood displayed some unexpected finesse, and struck some elegant boundaries, setting the tone for an audacious chase. India struggled to find their rhythm after being taken aback by the unconventional approach of Australia."Cummins added further, "Pat Cummins came at number three, leading from the front. His fearless intent brought belief into the Aussies camp and brought them close to a win with each stroke. With 2 runs needed in 1 ball, he sent the ball into the night skies, launching a nervy full toss delivered by the Indian bowler.""Australia triumphed despite all odds, with their unconventional approach proving to be a masterstroke," said Hazlewood.
"The Oval erupted," concluded Lyon.
