A Rohit Special Hundred in last game and a 4-fer for World Cup debutant Chahal along with 2 odd by Bumrah set the tone for a massive India Victory at the start of the Tournament. But now its time to face the Current World Champions and to take the revenge of 2015 Semi-Final loss. Frankly, saying its a norma game for both teams as it wont impact them deeply in points tables but still its a big game. So, far India & Australia look evenly matched with a exception of World’s Best Spin Twins which India had and Australia definitey look thin on spin and so expect a lot of spin from India against them. Keeping in mind their last meeting before World Cup, Australia will head as favourites for this game but they are not even in Top-4 of all reputed experts including Insider Cricket. So, lets see what happens on Sunday.
Pitch- The match will be played at Oval Cricket Ground, London. The pitch usually here is flat and assists the batsman. But still a lot of depends on weather.
Weather- A partly sunny day with a high of 19 degrees and a low of 11 degrees is expected.
