Aussie skipper Pat Cummins on playing a World Cup final in front of a partisan crowd of 100,000+, “We play over here in India a lot so the noise is not something new – yeah, I think on this scale it’s probably bigger than we would have experienced before but it’s not something totally foreign to what we’ve had before.
