In the 14th match of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, two of the favorites to win the world cup India and Australia will lock their horns against each other at the Kennington Oval in London on 9th June. IND vs AUS match preview.
When last time both these teams met in World Cup, Australia knocked out India in 2015 in Semi-Finals. And the recent series win over India in India is a good morale booster for the Australian team.
India started off their world cup with a dominating win over the South Africa team. First, Jaspreet Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal destroyed the Proteas batting line up and then Rohit Sharma scored an unbeaten century (122*) to help India get their first two points in the world cup tournament. Although India defeated SA in the last game, the form of Shikhar Dhawan is still an area of concern for the Indian team. India will now have the biggest hurdle in the world cup campaign when they will face five times world champions Australia. Indian team is looking in good form and the game against Aussies will be the real test for them.
Australia is coming here after securing two wins in two games. Their last victory over Caribbeans must have boosted the confidence level of the team. At one time, AUS was 79-5 but from there, they put up 288-10 on the board. Steve Smith held the one end and didn’t let the collapse take place even when the wickets were falling at regular intervals on the other end. Later, Nathan Coulter-Nile played the Inning of his life and scored 92 runs when AUS needed the most. And then, Mitchell Starc got the remaining job done and took 5 wickets and stopped Windies 15 runs before the target.
However, India is a lot stronger side than Afghanistan and the West Indies and it is not going to be an easy task for the Aussies to beat the in-form Indian team.
