One of the most anticipated games of 2019 Cricket World Cup is here! It’s a super Sunday – Australia vs India – with two white-ball cricket heavyweights locking horns against each other.
The five-time World champions Australia have already made a statement with two wins in as many outings and would look to complete a hat-trick of wins. Meanwhile, India too made a dominating start brushing aside South Africa in their opening encounter.
The last ODI at the venue produced a thriller, Bangladesh vs New Zealand on June 5. There was help for quick early on while spinners had a ball in the 2nd innings. Expect another gruelling contest between the bat and ball.
Last result at the venue – Bangladesh 244 lost to New Zealand 248/8 (47.1/50 ov) on June 5 2019
