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.
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.
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.
