In March, he returned home from a tour of India to be with his mother Maria before her death.

“Obviously it’s been a huge year for me. I know my family at home is watching, just got a text from dad saying he’s up at 4:00 a.m. and at 4:00 a.m. Doesn’t go to bed until 00, so he’s as excited as anything.

“You sacrifice a lot to play for Australia and everyone in the team has and we’ve spent a lot of time away this year but we do it for these moments.”

India’s star batsman Virat Kohli finished the match by setting a new record for most runs in a World Cup – 765.

But when fast bowler Cummins dismissed Kohli for 54 on Sunday, leaving India at 148-4, the crowd of over 92,000 at the Narendra Modi Stadium was left stunned.

Before the match, Cummins – who finished the final with impressive figures of 2-34 from 10 overs – had said there was no better feeling for an opposition player than silencing a partisan home crowd.

When Cummins was asked if Kohli’s dismissal was as sweet a moment as he had seen in cricket, the 30-year-old replied: “I think so. We took a second to acknowledge the silence that surrounded the crowd. Took time.” ,

“It felt like it was one of those days when everything was built for him (Kohli) to score another century like he usually does – so it was satisfying.”
