India Versus Australia. It is probably one of the most-awaited matches of World Cup 2019. While Australia has played and won 2 matches, India has played and won 1. Both teams are in formidable form and it is the clash that could make us forget the one-sided matches. Here is all you need to read for both the teams before picking your Fantain XI.

Team News:

India

The first match against South Africa saw India fall into place with rhythm quickly. It was a must-win match for South Africa and India did not give them a chance to have a come-back in the World Cup. South Africa batted first and could not handle the spin cum pace combination of trio Bumrah, B Kumar and Chahal.

And then Rohit Sharma came in to bat and stole the thunder. India won the match with more than 2 overs to spare. India is not likely to change the winning combination

Probable XI:

MS Dhoni (wk), Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (c), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Lokesh Rahul, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya

Australia

Australia is not a team to take any team for granted, leave alone in-form India. Having won both matches, Australia is looking to defend the World Cup trophy and is very much on the right path. The match against West Indies was a close one with Brathwaite and Hope working extra hard to steal the match from them.

Australia walk in to face India with their primary weapon Starc who has to his credit, the first 5-fer of the tournament.

Probable XI:

Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa

Top Picks

Rohit Sharma: 23rd ODI century and first Asian to be a centurion in World Cup 2019, Rohit Sharma has paved the way for a glorious run fest.

M Starc: Bowlers like Starc have proven that they have a big say in what has been promised as a land of runs.

Bumrah: With pitches as flat as roads, Bumrah can make most of it to get India another win in the World Cup.

Chahal: The spinner has managed to find a way to make the flat pitch work in his favour. He is most definitely the bowler that could stump opposition with the twist in bowling.

Our recommendation

Batsmen: Rohit Sharma, Finch, Khawaja, Kohli, KL Rahul

Bowlers: Starc, Chahal, Bumrah

All-Rounders: Stoinis, Hardik Pandya

WK: Alex Carey
