It is just a practice match for Aussies ahead of Ashes and nice to have Indians in finals for ticket sales.
Whether to finish the Indians inside 3 or 4 or 5 days depends on how much practice the Aussies and how much ticket sales the ECB are looking for
Share cup after 5 days ?

Poor lady. Even though we are Indians and supporting India with all our soul and heart, we have to respect the other side as well. Humility wins so many times. Don't be overconfident.

Overconfident fan. Why can't people just go watch?! Stay humble with a strong opposition.

Australia have their noses ahead on Day One of WTC final 2023
Meanwhile, in the game, the Aussies were asked to bat first and lost the wicket of Usman Khawaja early. The likes of Marnus Labuschagne and David Warner put together 69 runs for the second wicket. Just before the Lunch break, the latter got out, caught down the leg side. After the break, Labuschagne was cleaned up by Mohammed Shami.
At 78/3, the likes of Travis Head and vice-captain Steve Smith have added 143 runs and counting. The former counter-attacked the Indian bowling and the Asian side hasn’t looked like having an answer. At the time of writing, Head is batting on 94 off 95 balls including 14 fours and a six. On the other hand, Smith is batting on 49. The Rohit Sharma-led side now needs wickets desperately to make some comeback into the game
