Confirmed Lineups (Updated):
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), KL Rahul, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Kedar Jadhav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah.
Australia: David Warner, Aaron Finch (C), Usman Khawaja, Steve Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (WK), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa.
- Both India and Australia are not expected to make many changes to their winning combination.
- Nathan Coulter-Nile is expected to retain his place in the starting XI after producing a superb batting performance against the West Indies. He struggled with the ball, however.
- Virat Kohli often makes surprising selection decisions in major tournament matches.
- Mohammad Shami was left out of the previous match as India went in with two spinners. Shami bowls good bouncers and as Australia struggled against bouncy deliveries in their previous match against the West Indies, Shami may come in.
- If he comes in, Bhuvneshwar Kumar might go out.
- It is likely to be partially cloudy tomorrow at the Oval with very less chance of rain (15%).
- The Oval pitch has produced high scoring matches in the tournament so far – Eng vs SA, SA vs BAN.
- If both batting lineups can negotiate the early swing without losing too many wickets, this could be a high scoring match.
Head to Head (ODIs):
India wins: 49
Australia wins: 77
No result: 10
- Both teams head into this match with a 100% winning record so far this World Cup.
- The presence of wicket-takers in the middle overs as compared to Australia may turn out to be India’s biggest strength in this match.
- Bumrah vs Warner is likely to be the most important individual battle in this match.
- My Prediction: Expecting both batting lineups to click in this one. Batting first and posting a big total may be the right way to go. Could be anyone’s game.
Captain and Vice-Captain Picks:
- Virat Kohli
- Steve Smith
- Rohit Sharma/David Warner
