Cricket: Pat Cummins urges Australia to embrace India crowd challenge in World Cup final

# Cricket: Australia captain Pat Cummins has urged his side to embrace the challenge of facing a hostile crowd when they play in-form hosts India in tomorrow’s World Cup final in Ahmedabad. A capacity crowd of 130-thousand, which would be a record for any cricket match, is expected to roar on India, who have won all ten of their matches en route to the showpiece game. The hosts are bidding for a third men’s one-day international World Cup title, and second on home soil after their 2011 triumph. Australia has won the World Cup five times.
