Cricket Match Preview:

India will perhaps have their biggest test on Sunday in this World Cup when they will take on Australia in their second cricket game. While India-Australia rivalry has become more intense over the years, in the World Cup, it is still skewed towards Australia. India have managed to beat them only once in the past four World Cup and that solitary victory came in the quarter-final of the 2011 cricket World Cup.

Australia are the defending champions and they have begun this World Cup playing like one. They brushed aside Afghanistan in their opening cricket game and then came back from the dead to win the game against West Indies. Their second win is the one that their opponents fear the most. They think that they have Australia under control and there is no way they can bounce back from there. But then they do, and teams are left wondering about how and what ifs.

India, however, are no pushovers either. Their temperament separates them from most of the other sides in the World. They have some of the shrewdest minds in the team and Virat Kohli, the skipper, can rely on their decision-making prowess. MS Dhoni is an absolute legend of the game, one who is known to outthink the oppositions for a number of years. Rohit Sharma has a brain that has won four IPL trophies while Jasprit Bumrah is one of the best, if not the best, bowlers in the world.

It is almost as if the last two years do not exist in Australia’s cricket history. From being a team that had banned three of its players for tampering the ball, to being beaten no matter which side they played, they have come a long way. They are now looking as formidable as everyone expects them to be. They have solid batting core and in Mitch Starc and Pat Cummins, they have two high-quality pacers. Those two pacers are being supported brilliantly by the spin of Adam Zampa.

In almost every cricket pundit’s predictions, both India and Australia are expected to reach the semi-final. It is not beyond possibility that these two sides may meet again later in the tournament. Hence, for bigger battles ahead and to make their roads ahead seem less daunting, it would be fascinating to see two proud cricketing nations battle it out at the biggest stage of them all.

Cricket Match Information:

India will take on Australia in their second World Cup game of 2019 edition. So far, India have played one cricket game and won it, whereas Australia have played two games and won both of them. Each cricket team is supposed to play nine group games and the top four cricket teams will go through to the semi-final.


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

India are being led by Virat Kohli in this tournament. They are coming into this game after a fine win over South Africa. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last game.

Here is our prediction of India’s playing XI:

  • Rohit Sharma
  • Shikhar Dhawan
  • Virat Kohli
  • KL Rahul
  • MS Dhoni
  • Kedar Jadhav
  • Kuldeep Yadav
  • Bhuvaneshwar Kumar
  • Jasprit Bumrah
  • Yuzvendra Chahal
  • Hardik Pandya


Probable XI (Our Prediction):

Australia are being led by Aaron Finch in the World Cup. They are coming into this cricket game after two back-to-back wins. Our prediction is of the same playing eleven that played the last cricket game.

Here is our prediction of Australia’s playing XI:

  • Aaron Finch
  • David Warner
  • Steve Smith
  • Alex Carrey
  • Glenn Maxwell
  • Marcus Stoinis
  • Adam Zampa
  • Usman Khawaja
  • Mitch Starc

Cricket Statistics and Prediction:

Mitch Starc was one of the main reasons behind Australia’s win over West Indies. His lethal yorkers and sharp short deliveries are going to test the Indian batting lineup as well. Our prediction is of another good cricket game for him.

Cricket Match Conditions and Pitch:

The last international cricket ODI cricket played here was between New Zealand and Bangladesh recently. It was a low-scoring thriller, which New Zealand won by just two wickets. Our prediction is of a score of around 300 in this cricket game. Conditions are expected to be dry.

Our Prediction:

Australia will begin this game of cricket as favourites. They have beaten India in the last three consecutive cricket games and they have begun well in this World Cup as well. Hence, our prediction is of an Australian victory.

Steve Smith (AUS) – 50+ runs

Top Bowler (Prediction):

Mitch Starc (AUS) – 2 or more wickets
