2. Rishabh Pant

Rishabh Pant's unorthodox stroke-play makes him a match-winner against any opposition. He has been in fine form in the tournament scoring 116 runs in four innings in difficult batting conditions. Pant's promotion to number 3 has been a brilliant move by India.

Travis Head is in the form of his life and is currently the most dangerous batter in the world in the powerplay. He was in menacing form in the IPL and has a strike rate of 156 in this tournament.

2. Mitchell Starc

Mitchell Starc has an uncanny ability to strike in the first over and his battle with the Indian openers will define the rest of the encounter on Monday. Starc is one of the greatest bowlers in white-ball cricket history!

Venue and Pitch

The Daren Sammy National Cricket Stadium in Gros Islet at St Lucia has hosted five T20Is in the World Cup. Interestingly, the captain winning the toss has elected to bowl all 5 times. But the team batting first has won three matches. The average score batting first at St Lucia in the tournament is 188/5 which makes it a very high-scoring venue. The average score chasing is 151/7.

The wicket is good for batting where the ball comes onto the bat. Pacers have picked 58% of the wickets at St Lucia but been expensive with an economy of 9.4. Spinners have been more restrictive with an economy of 7.9. The average score at St Lucia is 170. There will be high speed winds blowing across the stadium on Monday. The mean temperature will be 29 degrees while there is a 60% chance of rain.

Match Prediction

This will be a marquee encounter. It is the El-Clasico of cricket! It is very difficult to pick the favourites for Monday. Both teams have a very strong batting line-up and an equally potent bowling attack. The contest between Starc-Hazlwood and the Indian openers will define the match. Kohli is expected to get a big score against his favourite opponents. Bumrah vs Head will be a crucial battle too as will be the clash between Kuldeep and Maxwell/Stoinis. Based on the relative strengths and form in the tournament, Australia start marginal favourites with a 51% chance of victory.

Fantasy XI

And finally, this is our Fantasy XI for the India vs Australia encounter. We have 6 players from India and 5 from Australia. Rohit and Head will open the innings while SKY, Kohli and Stoinis will comprise the middle order. Bumrah and Starc will share the new ball while the middle overs will be controlled by Zampa.

Bumrah is our captain while Head is the vice-captain.

Our backup players include JAISWAL as batter, MOHAMMED SIRAJ as bowler and CAMERON GREEN as all-rounder.
