2019 Cricket World Cup
Venue: The Oval
Date: Sunday, 9 June, 2019
Start: 10:30am BST
The biggest heavyweight clash of the World Cup so far takes place on Sunday when India face Australia at The Oval.
The two nations have won seven of the 11 World Cups between them, and both come into this match with 100% records so far in the tournament.
Australia thrashed Afghanistan by seven wickets in their opener, before grinding out a thrilling win over the West Indies.
India meanwhile, have had to be patient, waiting almost a week for their first taste of the action, but did not disappoint, producing an excellent display to beat South Africa.
India: Dhawan, Sharma, Kohli (c), Rahul, Dhoni (wk), Pandya, Jadhav, Kumar, Yadav, Chahal, Bumrah
Australia: Finch (c), Warner, Khawaja, Smith, Maxwell, Stoinis, Carey (wk), Coulter-Nile, Cummins, Starc, Zampa
Result prediction: India win
This should be a terrific contest. Jasprit Bumrah vs Mitchell Starc. Rohit Sharma vs David Warner. Virat Kohli vs Steve Smith.
In front of what will likely be a partisan crowd at The Oval, India may edge it.
