Australian captain Pat Cummins has reacted to a troll article against Team India by an Australian media outlet on Instagram following their 2023 World Cup final win. In a screenshot that has gone viral on social media, the 30-year-old has reacted with laughing emoticons on the post, triggering the Indian fans.

With Travis Head, who is a South Australian, blasting a match-winning century in the final, the article gave a headline, 'South Australian Man Gives Birth To World Record 11 Sons', taking a jibe at the hosts. While Cummins commented with 4 laughing emoticons, reports also suggested that he initially liked the post before undoing it, triggering widespread backlash among Team India supporters.

Pat Cummins brings his A game in the 2023 World Cup final:

Regardless of his reaction to the post, heaps of praise came Cummins' way as he had his best match as captain and bowler in the tournament. The 30-year-old called correctly at the toss, electing to bowl first on a dry pitch. His field placings were also spot on, not allowing the home side's famed batting line-up to gather any momentum in the final 10 overs.

With the ball, Cummins finished with impressive figures of 10-0-34-2, dismissing Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer as Australia restricted India to 240 in 50 overs. Despite the tourists losing 3 wickets inside 10 overs, they didn't let that bog them down as Travis Head led their charge to victory.

Head struck 137 to join an elite group of players to hit a century in a World Cup final as Australia sealed their 6th title victory.
