World Cup Squad Comparison


The start of the campaign would have made skipper Virat Kohli extremely happy. In a low scoring game against South Africa that has gone down the wire the Indian team managed to hold onto its nerves and win the encounter. They were superb with the ball making use of the conditions well and reduced the South African side to a small total. When it came to their batting their approach was clinical and they negotiated hostile fast bowling from the South Africans pretty well. Kohli would want his men to carry the same form and momentum into the next game.

Rohit Sharma played a great knock in the last game and Shikhar Dhawan who missed out in the last game would be looking to do well. In the middle order India have great strength starting with Virat Kohli, KL Rahul and MS Dhoni. The side has got good finishers in the form of Hardik Pandya and Kedar Jadhav and they will definitely challenge the Australian bowlers. In the bowling department Indians seem to have all their bases covered. Jasprit Bumrah is in incredible form and Bhuvneshwar Kumar is supporting him well. Yuzvendra Chahal is troubling batsmen and the team would want Kuldeep Yadav to find some form in the next game against Australia.


Australian skipper Aaron Finch would have had his heart in its mouth in the last game against the West Indies. It was a game where momentum shifted from one side to the other several times in the game. In the end the Australians were able to hold on to their nerves and win the game. But there were several warning calls for the team especially with their batting and bowling that they would like to fix before they take on India in the next game. The Indians are likely to come hard at them and Finch would want his side to play their best game.

Aaron Finch and David Warner missed out in the last game and they would be looking to give the perfect start to the side. The middle order is strong with Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith and Glenn Maxwell. The side bats deep with Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter-Nile and it was these three who contributed more than half their runs in the last game. Mitchell Starc is in great form with the ball and Australian attack looks dangerous. Pat Cummins is also bowling well and so is Nathan Coulter-Nile. The skipper would expect Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa to do well and pitch the ball in the right areas.

Our Prediction for India vs Australia

India will win the game


It is being touted as one of the biggest matches of this edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup as a confident Team India would take on World Champions Australia at The Kennington Oval, London. Indian team would be in the right frame of mind having defeated the South Africans in the first game while Australia come into this one with two back to back wins and would be proud of their efforts in the last game. Both the sides have shared good rivalry over the last few years and we expect this one to be a cracker of a contest.

There isn’t much to choose between the two teams but the Indian team has a slightly better bowling line-up and this will make them favourites in the game.
