5-time World Cup winners Australia will face 2 time winners India in a battle of the heavyweights at the Kennington Oval on Sunday. It’s the 22nd clash between these two since the start of 2015. While India were good in all the 3 departments against South Africa, Australia had to grind for a hard fought victory against West Indies.
But remember, Australia beat India in their own den and won the ODI series 3-2. They have the upper hand over India and the latter would be keen for a revenge. Kohli v Smith, Starc v Bumrah, Maxwell v Pandya. It surely promises to be a treat for the fans.
Weather & Pitch report:
It will mostly be cloudy in London but rain has not been predicted. We might see a complete game. The match will be played on a fresh wicket. It may well be a pitch that has something in it for both the departments.
