India take on Australia in their second match of the ICC World Cup on Sunday, June 9 at the Oval. The match will start at 9:30 AM GMT, 3:00 PM SLST, 8:30 PM NZDT.
India: 353 runs in 50 overs
Sunday will see two fierce rivals with rich historical, and recent rivalry take on each other. Australia has had the better of the two in World Cup history – the broadcasters too are marketing the game on those lines – but the contest couldn’t be more even now. India is ranked higher in ODIs after a consistent run over the last two years. Australia, who seemed down and out last year, have lifted their game right in time for the World Cup.
India identified their best combination in the very first game, and in the process set themselves a template. Early wickets with the new ball, check. Spinners among the wickets in the middle overs, check. Pacers back in action in the death, check. Top order batsman batting through, check.
Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Rohit Sharma – all up and running early. Australia had been the big boys of world cricket. No team has dominated the World Cup as much as the five-time champions over the years.
Australia is the defending champions but for arguably the first time, they are not starting as outright favorites. Australia had a horror run after losing two of their finest modern-day batsmen, David Warner, and Steve Smith to ball-tampering suspensions. The team plan for Australia must be to restrict India on a low score and win their match against India. By which Australia will gain the top position in the points table

The pitch at The Oval has something for everyone. It has a good pace and bounces and the fast bowlers can make the ball talk if the overhead conditions are favorable. If the sun is out, we can expect a high scoring encounter like the one between South Africa and Bangladesh earlier in the tournament.
