India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Maiden for Siraj

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Aaron Finch notes in the commentary box that this is probably the longest he has seen Siraj bowl without sending in a bouncer. He has largely stuck to a length or just slightly fuller. Siraj is left crouching at the end of the over and is then placed at the boundary where he gets some shoulder rubs from the physio.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: And that is thanks to a good sharp catch by Virat Kohli at first slip. Mitchell Marsh is gone.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma's thoughts

Rohit Sharma reckons that the wicket is “slightly on the slower side”. He says that the bowlers need to understand their lines and lengths early though. Like Cummins, he says that the fact that India played a lot of cricket before the World Cup has helped them cover a lot of bases. He confirms that Ishan Kishan will open the batting in Shubman Gill's absence.

Oct 8, 2023 1:37 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: What Pat Cummins said

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: The Australian captain confirmed that there is no Travis Head. "We'll bat first, looks like a good wicket. Sun is out, good opportunity to bat," he said. Cummins further said that the team is in a good spot considering the number of matches they have played in the last few weeks. Apart from head, Josh Inglis also misses out.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: This may be the fourth time that this tournament is being played in India but it is the first time that the country is hosting it exclusively. The 1987 World Cup was co-hosted by India and Pakistan, which marked the first time that this tournament was played anywhere but in England. Then, in 1996, India hosted it with Pakistan and Sri Lanka and in 2011, India hosted it with Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. On two of these three occassions, the final was hosted in India - It was played at the Eden Gardens in 1987 and the Wankhede Stadium in 2011. The final of the 1996 World Cup wsa hosted at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Kohli at the Chepauk Stadium

Virat Kohli is the second highest run scorer of all time in ODIs played at the Chepauk Stadium and the only player in the current Indian squad to have scored an ODI century here. He has 337 runs in eight matches at an average of 42.12 with one century and three half centuries. Who is the highest scorer of all time at the Chepauk? Well, think yellow, but not in an Australian sense. Just to give you the stats, Kohli's former India captain has scored 401 runs in six matches with two centuries and a half century and an average of 100.25. Still don't get it? Well think of Tamil word for 'leader'. Still don't get it? Well then, I hope it is nice and cool under that rock.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Bumrah vs Warner in ODIs

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Not many batters in the world who has faced Jasprit Bumrah can say that they have never been dismissed by him but that is exactly what David Warner can boast about. Bumrah has bowled to Warner 122 times in ODIs and not once has the Australian opener fallen.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: When India won in 2011

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: “Seeing the response of the whole country and how much joy it brought. There was a switch that went off,” said KL Rahul on Star Sports while talking about the 2011 World Cup. India's victory in 2011 also started a bit of a trend of the hosts winning the tournament - Australia won it in Australia in 2015 while England won it in England in 2019.

Oct 8, 2023 12:46 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: No Gill in the team bus!

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Well, the decision seems to have been made already. Shubman Gill hasn't even travelled with the team to the Chepauk Stadium. Unless he is planning to arrive separately in the Chennai local MRTS trains and walk from the Chepauk station, he is ruled out of today's game.

Oct 8, 2023 12:27 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Hardik Pandya and Steve Smith

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: India's frontline pace-bowling all-rounder seems to have the wood on Australia's best. Pandya has dismissed Smith five times in 75 balls. Don't be surprised if he is brought on as first change in case Smith in early.

Oct 8, 2023 12:14 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Ashwin and left-handers

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Ravichandran Ashwin was a last-minute inclusion for India after Axar Patel's injury was confirmed. The veteran spinner is a nightmare to bat against in India, particularly if one is a left-hander, such as David Warner and Alex Carey in this Australian team. Warner had in fact resorted to playing right handed against him in the second ODI, and perished in the process.

Oct 8, 2023 12:02 PM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Maxwell's all-round revelation

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Glenn Maxwell's ability to bowl a bit was always common knowledge. However, he has turned himself into a genuine all-rounder in ODI cricket over the last couple of years. Since 2020, Maxwell has averaged 28.53 with the ball. It is the reason why Australia will have no qualms going into the matches in the World Cup with just one genuine spinner in Adam Zampa.

Oct 8, 2023 11:53 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Green over Stoinis for Australia?

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Marcus Stoinis had missed the practice games and head coach Andrew McDonald later revealed that the all-rounder had a hamstring problem. "he'll be touch and go for the first game against India," he had said. Green had a terrible time of it in the three-match ODI series against India before this World Cup but found some form against Pakistan in the warm-ups. McDonald, however, hopes to fit both Stoinis and Green in the side.

“Over the last 18 months, we've had a pretty clear way that we want to build three ways of playing. One of those ways is definitely with all the allrounders and potentially two quicks, and you've seen that side in the past 18 months being played, so there is a real possibility that both of those players can be in the same XI and we haven't ruled that out,” he said.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma on winning the World Cup

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: "You heard the great man say so many times that you know, until he wins the World Cup, he's got a bit of unfinished business. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. So it's the same for us as well. You want to win the World Cup, It's the biggest prize that you can have in your career. But again, there's a way to do it. There's a procedure that you need to follow. There's a process to it […] It's good to be desperate. It's good to be hungry. But you've got to find that balance, right? […] You cannot get way too ahead of yourself because that can lead into something that you don't really wish for."

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Chances of this match being disrupted by rain is miniscule but showers have been forecast. If they come, it will be around the time the match starts but is expected to be so low that the players might not even go off. A warm afternoon that could evolve into a humid, sultry evening.

Oct 8, 2023 11:28 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: If not Gill then…

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: It seems quite obvious that it will be Ishan Kishan opening the batting with Rohit Sharma if not for Shubman Gill. KL Rahul has pretty much owned the No.5 spot and has put in some crucial performances from that position over the last couple of years and so India would be looking to keep him there.

Oct 8, 2023 11:15 AM IST

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Gill this year

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: There are not shortage of options for India in the opening slot and yet, fans are hoping that Shubman Gill would be fit to play today. Apart from not wanting the team composition to be messed up, Gill's extraordinary year in ODI cricket is a reason for this. In 2023, Gill has scored 1230 runs in 20 matches at an average of 72.35 and a strike rate of 105.03 with five centuries and five half centuries to boot. These numbers are despite a dip in form a month ago.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Adam Zampa hasn't been good news for Indian batters. He took 4/45 and was the Player of the Match here in Chennai when Australia won a series decider in March. He enjoys a positive head-to-head against several Indian batters. In ODIs, he's dismissed Kohli five times, Rohit, Hardik and Rahul four times each.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill seems to be dealing with a bout of dengue and if that is the case, there is very little chance of him playing today, despite what head coach Rahul Dravid said. "He’s feeling better today and the medical team is monitoring him on a day-to-day basis. We will take a call on him later. The medical team hasn’t ruled him out yet. We’ll see how he feels the day after tomorrow,” he said.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Kuldeep Yadav's resurgence

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: What is with Kuldeep Yadav and World Cups? Just before the 2019 World Cup, he and Yuzvendra Chahal were the spin bowling pair the world couldn't handle. At the tournament they didn't have too great a time of it and since then the pair's international appearances dwindled, especially in the case of Kuldeep. However, it has been pretty clear in the home stretch of this run to the World Cup that India have zeroed in on Kuldeep as their only pure spin bowling option and hasn't he delivered. It is the middle overs in which Kuldeep really comes alive, he has taken 39 wickets at an average of 20.03 in the middle-overs (11-40) since 2022.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: "I've probably played more white-ball cricket in India than I have in Australia over the last 10 years, so it's conditions we know really well. And I think the positive thing is that we've played some really good one-day cricket against India over here over the last few years so we can draw back on that and that can be front of mind."

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Well, the decision seems to have been made already. Shubman Gill hasn't even travelled with the team to the Chepauk Stadium. Unless he is planning to arrive separately in the Chennai local MRTS trains and walk from the Chepauk station, he is ruled out of today's game.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Hardik Pandya and Steve Smith

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: India's frontline pace-bowling all-rounder seems to have the wood on Australia's best. Pandya has dismissed Smith five times in 75 balls. Don't be surprised if he is brought on as first change in case Smith in early.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Ashwin and left-handers

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Ravichandran Ashwin was a last-minute inclusion for India after Axar Patel's injury was confirmed. The veteran spinner is a nightmare to bat against in India, particularly if one is a left-hander, such as David Warner and Alex Carey in this Australian team. Warner had in fact resorted to playing right handed against him in the second ODI, and perished in the process.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Maxwell's all-round revelation

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Glenn Maxwell's ability to bowl a bit was always common knowledge. However, he has turned himself into a genuine all-rounder in ODI cricket over the last couple of years. Since 2020, Maxwell has averaged 28.53 with the ball. It is the reason why Australia will have no qualms going into the matches in the World Cup with just one genuine spinner in Adam Zampa.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Green over Stoinis for Australia?

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Marcus Stoinis had missed the practice games and head coach Andrew McDonald later revealed that the all-rounder had a hamstring problem. "he'll be touch and go for the first game against India," he had said. Green had a terrible time of it in the three-match ODI series against India before this World Cup but found some form against Pakistan in the warm-ups. McDonald, however, hopes to fit both Stoinis and Green in the side.

“Over the last 18 months, we've had a pretty clear way that we want to build three ways of playing. One of those ways is definitely with all the allrounders and potentially two quicks, and you've seen that side in the past 18 months being played, so there is a real possibility that both of those players can be in the same XI and we haven't ruled that out,” he said.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Rohit Sharma on winning the World Cup

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: "You heard the great man say so many times that you know, until he wins the World Cup, he's got a bit of unfinished business. I'm sure you know who I'm talking about. So it's the same for us as well. You want to win the World Cup, It's the biggest prize that you can have in your career. But again, there's a way to do it. There's a procedure that you need to follow. There's a process to it […] It's good to be desperate. It's good to be hungry. But you've got to find that balance, right? […] You cannot get way too ahead of yourself because that can lead into something that you don't really wish for."

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Chances of this match being disrupted by rain is miniscule but showers have been forecast. If they come, it will be around the time the match starts but is expected to be so low that the players might not even go off. A warm afternoon that could evolve into a humid, sultry evening.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: If not Gill then…

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: It seems quite obvious that it will be Ishan Kishan opening the batting with Rohit Sharma if not for Shubman Gill. KL Rahul has pretty much owned the No.5 spot and has put in some crucial performances from that position over the last couple of years and so India would be looking to keep him there.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Gill this year

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: There are not shortage of options for India in the opening slot and yet, fans are hoping that Shubman Gill would be fit to play today. Apart from not wanting the team composition to be messed up, Gill's extraordinary year in ODI cricket is a reason for this. In 2023, Gill has scored 1230 runs in 20 matches at an average of 72.35 and a strike rate of 105.03 with five centuries and five half centuries to boot. These numbers are despite a dip in form a month ago.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Shubman Gill seems to be dealing with a bout of dengue and if that is the case, there is very little chance of him playing today, despite what head coach Rahul Dravid said. "He’s feeling better today and the medical team is monitoring him on a day-to-day basis. We will take a call on him later. The medical team hasn’t ruled him out yet. We’ll see how he feels the day after tomorrow,” he said.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Kuldeep Yadav's resurgence

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: What is with Kuldeep Yadav and World Cups? Just before the 2019 World Cup, he and Yuzvendra Chahal were the spin bowling pair the world couldn't handle. At the tournament they didn't have too great a time of it and since then the pair's international appearances dwindled, especially in the case of Kuldeep. However, it has been pretty clear in the home stretch of this run to the World Cup that India have zeroed in on Kuldeep as their only pure spin bowling option and hasn't he delivered. It is the middle overs in which Kuldeep really comes alive, he has taken 39 wickets at an average of 20.03 in the middle-overs (11-40) since 2022.

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: Pat Cummins on the Indian conditions

India vs Australia Live Score, World Cup 2023: "I've probably played more white-ball cricket in India than I have in Australia over the last 10 years, so it's conditions we know really well. And I think the positive thing is that we've played some really good one-day cricket against India over here over the last few years so we can draw back on that and that can be front of mind."
