India Vs Australia.
It’s a big Sunday – India Vs Australia
Face to Face in World Cup
11 – Matches – 8-Australia, 3-India.
Probable Indian team for Today’s Match
Dhawan, Rohit, Kohli, Rahul, Dhoni, Jadhav, Pandya, Bhuvi, Chahal, Bumrah, Shami.
It’s a big match today and most important for India to gain confidence against Australia as India lost 3 consecutive matches to Aus in India Vs Australia series at home.
On the Other side, Australia also wants a win against one of their contenders for world cup trophy to gain momentum into the world cup. Although they won the series against India, they lost a big series on their home ground to India which will be back of their mind.
Today’s ground is a high scoring ground in last couple of years and also Aussies are good at spin, so it will be a better choice to go with a single spinner and three fast bowlers.
Shami is in good form and will be a better option against Australia. Shami with his bouncers can be lethal against Australia. Bhuvi , Bumrah and Shami can be very dangerous with sharing 30 overs between them. Pandya can be a 4th seamer . So we are looking at almost 35 to 40 overs fast bowling which can restrict Australia. Bumrah should play a crucial role in death overs today.
The only way Kuldeep looks in the team if the pitch supports spinners , then Shami should make a way to Kuldeep.
Chahal should be the choice as he looks in good form than Kuldeep. Although Kuldeep has a great track record, he was in short of confidence which may impact him when he face the Australians . Chahal is in superb form against SA and the way he flight the ball will give him wickets when Australia looks to score big.
The opening pair of Australia looks dangerous in last 6 months and the addition of Warner to that will be more devastating. With Warner and Smith playing good knocks in first two matches with Warner scoring 89 and Smith scoring 73. In last world cup , everyone remembers the Smith innings which stood between India and their 2015 world cup. He will once again play a crucial role in today’s match.
We should not mention about Australian bowling because they are always on the best bowling side. The bowling looks very strong with Counter Nile, Starc and Pat Cummins. Starc on the other day against WI took 5 wickets and Cummins took crucial 3 wickets in their opening game.
Today’s match is between
Dhawan, Rohit partnership Vs Warner and Finch partnership.
Kohli Vs Australian pace bowling.
Smith show vs Indian bowling.
Finally its Dhoni – Pandya Vs Maxwell – Stonnis show.
Whatever I have written , my MIND and HEART goes with INDIA and hope I will post the match analysis and my first sentence should say India as winner.
We should see a great match today. See you all after the match.
