Virat Kohli on India’s victory

“A top, top win for us after losing that series in India. We came in with intent right from ball one. The opening partnership was outstanding. It was outstanding with the ball on a good batting track. You have to bowl well. You can’t take things for granted. That 30 runs gives you the luxury. One of the top three getting hundred. We decided to send Hardik to cash in. For us if Shami has to play, it has to be overcast and proper bowling conditions. Very professional again. You hardly need to say anything to them.”

We work really hard in the nets, our process is very strong that’s why the results are going our way. We ticked all the boxes today.

14:38 hrs IST

Finch speaks

I would have batted first. It’s a dry surface, might get slower later. I think in the World Cup you are playing against different oppositions, good chance for the players to get out there and express themselves.

14:37 hrs IST

Kohli speaks

We are gonna bat first, looks a nice wicket. It’s been used before and it’ll get slower. Best conditions to bat first and put some runs on the board. The bowling attack can put pressure on the opposition. The batsmen would be wary about the situation. With the sun out, it’s a no brainer to bat first. It’s been used before so there is not much moisture in the pitch. We think it’s gonna play nicely and the bat will come on to the bat. We are playing with the same line-up because we have a nice balance.

14:27 hrs IST

Pitch report

It’s a typical Oval wicket with a covering of thick grass and it will do a bit later in the day. Kohli or Finch might select to bat first as it looks a good pitch to bat on. 280+ score on the cards, reckons Michael Slater.

14:20 hrs IST

Recent record

Since the last World Cup Australia & India have played 18 ODIs against one another & are locked at nine wins each. The most reccent series was won 3-2 by Australia after going 2-0 down. Overall they have played 11 times in World Cups & Australia lead the head-to-head 8-3.

14:17 hrs IST

India Predicted XI against Australia

However, when it comes to Australia, Kohli & Co cannot rest on past laurels and it will be a tough fight against a team rejuvenated by the return of Steve Smith and David Warner. While convention dictates that teams generally stick to their winning combination, the conditions at the Oval may force India to make a change to their side.

Here is India’s predicted XI against Australia.

13:59 hrs IST

The playing surface

How does this pitch look like?

13:58 hrs IST

Australia predicted XI against India

The bowling unit, led by seamers Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins has looked good and Australia would not want to make any changes in that department, considering India’s weakness against fast bowling on overseas surface. Adam Zampa has been a good spin bowling option, and it is highly unlikely, the Aussies would replace him with Nathan Lyon, who does not enjoy a good record in the limited-overs format.

Here is Australia’s predicted XI.

Australia’s potent weapon and India’s nemesis

The prospect of seeing Mitchell Starc running in to Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli fighting it out against the pace and bounce of Pat Cummins might be luring during the India vs Australia ICC World Cup 2019 match at The Oval on Sunday. But it is actually Australia’s ‘third seamer’ Nathan Coulter-Nile that India should be most concerned about.

Here is why Coulter-Nile is a threat against the Indian batting order.

12:48 hrs IST

Warner using a bat sensor

Australian opener David Warner is meticulously preparing for the tougher battles ahead in the World Cup by using a new device on his bat – a sensor that stores important data like back lift angle and maximum bat speed.

The International Cricket Council had approved the usage of bat sensor back in 2017 but save the Australian batsmen, not many have used it over the past two years.

A Bengaluru based company named ‘Smart Cricket’ has introduced its version of sensor chip device ‘Bat Sense’ which Warner has been using to collate data to counter the likes of Jasprit Bumrah.

Defending champions Australia too will come into this clash high on confidence, following their victories in first two matches against Afghanistan and Windies respectively.

Here is a look at the top 5 player battles.

Clash of Titans

If there is one thing the Australian cricket team knows how to do at 50-over World Cups, it is to win. All the talk coming into the 2019 edition was that Australia, five-time champions and the current holders of the trophy, weren’t the dominant team they once used to be.

11:52 hrs IST

Dhoni, gloves, Army, insignia, BCCI, ICC

At the Oval on Sunday, all eyes will be on MS Dhoni when India meet Australia. The cameras will be zooming in on his gloves to look for the ‘badge’; his body language will be studied for clues—has the controversy with the insignia lifted him or subdued him? Then finally, the performance. Because a transformed Dhoni has been sensational against Australia in the recent past. With the bat, his average against Australia since 2018 is a towering 92, partly because the Aussies managed to get him out in only 3 of the six innings he has played in that period.

11:49 hrs IST

Rohit on the short-ball strategy

See, short ball for any batsman is not easy. Even the best guy who can pull the ball, who can hook the ball, will find it difficult. We understand that. And probably we have the bowling attack to do that. Having said that, you don’t want to be carried away with that.

The World Cup is warming up nicely

Pakistan humbled England, Bangladesh took down South Africa, West Indies almost took care of Australia, and New Zealand stumbled, stuttered, but managed to get home against Bangladesh.
