The national anthems are done, and we are all in readiness for the game to commence as the two umpires make their way out to the middle. Loud cheers from the crowd as the Indians disperse from the huddle. They are followed by the two openers of Australia, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh. Jasprit Bumrah has the new ball in hand and is raring to go. Two slips in place. Let’s play…
We are moments away from this blockbuster clash, but before that, the match officials and the two sets of players will line up for the national anthems. It will be Australia’s national anthem first, followed by the national anthem of India.
India’s skipper Rohit Sharma says that conditions are there for the bowlers. Adds that the wicket is on the slower side and it will turn as the game progresses. Feels that it will be important to understand what sort of lines and lengths to bowl. Also says that they played two good series before the warm-up games and are ready for this competition. Adds that they have all bases covered. Informs that waited till this morning for Shubman Gill but he did not recover in time. Also informs that Ishan Kishan will replace him and open the innings.
Pat Cummins, the skipper of Australia says that they will bat first. Adds that it looks like a good wicket and they want to set a target. Adds that they are in a good spot and have played quite a lot of cricket in the past month or so. Tells that they have a nice balance between game time and being fresh. Says Travis Head is on the couch in Adelaide and misses out while Marcus Stoinis, Sean Abbott and Josh Inglis are not quite ready and are out for this game as well.
Australia (Playing XI) – David Warner, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Alex Carey (WK), Cameron Green, Pat Cummins (C), Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood.
India (Playing XI) – Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (WK), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj.
TOSS – The flip of the coin lands in the favour of Pat Cummins and Australia have opted to BAT first.
PITCH REPORT – Ravi Shastri is near the deck. He informs that this is a slowish surface and might be two-paced as well. Adds that the pitches here have been firmer and reckons that spinners will come into play. Feels that pacers will also get help if they bowl back of a length. Harbhajan Singh joins him and says that this is drier than the usual Chennai surface. Shastri says that he will be tempted to play three spinners with the vast experience they have and Australia will think on the same lines as well. Harbhajan says that Mohammed Siraj should play ahead of Mohammed Shami because you need the pace of Siraj on this surface. Shastri ends by saying that Adam Zampa will hold the key for Australia in this game.
Australia, on the other hand, are different gravy when it comes to the ODI World Cup. Even though they lost the series against India just before the tournament, they comfortably won the third ODI where mostly the main starters played for both sides. David Warner is in top form and he just loves to score runs in India while Mitchell Marsh has been brilliant in this format for quite some time now. Marnus Labuschagne has peaked just at the right time for them too. However, they will expect a bit more from Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, and Marcus Stoinis in the middle order. They have taken the risk of not selecting another spinner in place of the injured Ashton Agar, and will hope that Maxwell delivers with the ball as well along with Adam Zampa. Talking about their pace department, Mitchell Starc has always been a threat to the Indian top order while in Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins they have two really intelligent bowlers. The match-ups in this game are simply amazing and we are surely in a for a thrilling contest. Will the lack of spin options prove to be the downfall for the Aussies? Or will they continue to maintain their good record against the Men in Blue in this competition? We will find out soon. Toss and team news in a bit.
India were hit with some unfortunate news with Shubman Gill being unwell and it remains to be seen if he plays in this game or not. However, even if he is out, Ishan Kishan can fill his spot effectively. KL Rahul has been in great form recently and has cemented that number four position while they have star players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma above him. Another interesting thing will be if they go with three spinners and bring Ravichandran Ashwin in as he had played for Chennai for a long time in the Indian T20 League and knows these conditions well which generally helps the spinners. Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah will be their main duo in the pace attack with Pandya providing the support. So, they need to make a decision between Shardul Thakur and Mohammed Shami to see if they want that extra batting option or a proper fast bowler. They will have to select the right combination and perform at the highest level to go past the mighty Aussies.
Hello and a warm welcome folks! The time has come for the hosts to kick start their World Cup campaign as they go up against the most successful team in this competition. Yes, it is India taking on Australia at the M.A Chidambaram stadium in Chennai and stakes are high as both sides look to begin their tournament on a positive note.
