India vs Australia – Match Preview, Probable Lineups

India Australia Cricket World Cup

Match 14 of the ongoing World Cup will see India and Australia locking horns on a super Sunday. Both the teams have the winning momentum coming into this game and will be eager to continue in the same vein.

If the recent clashes are concerned, Australia managed to win the five-match series in India after being 0-2 down. The Men in Yellow would love to make it four consecutive wins against Virat Kohli and his men.

Australia thrashed Afghanistan by seven wickets in their opening encounter and grinded out a tense win over the West Indies thanks to some vital contributions from Nathan Coulter-Nile and Mitchell Starc.

India, on the other hand, produced a thoroughly professional display to beat South Africa by six wickets at Southampton with Rohit Sharma and Yuzvendra Chahal being the stars of the show.

Cloudy conditions are expected on Sunday in London but there is some good news for the cricket fans as there is a just 10% chance of rain. We can expect a full game tomorrow. The temperature is likely to remain between 15-16 degrees Celsius.

Probable Playing XIs

India
Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.

Bench – Dinesh Karthik, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar.

The pitch at The Oval has something for everyone. It has good pace and bounce and the fast bowlers can make the ball talk if the overhead conditions are favourable. If the sun is out, we can expect a high scoring encounter like the one between South Africa and Bangladesh earlier in the tournament.
