The pitch is dry and hence suitable for the spinners. It slows down as the match progresses and therefore spinners can have an advantage, especially in the second innings. Teams would look to bat first and put runs on the board.

Clearly, Australia has dominated India in the ODIs by a huge margin.

Team India

The ICC CWC 2011 Champions India is holding the number 1 ICC ODI team ranking after displacing Pakistan. They did so after winning the Asia Cup 2023. The team is shaping up well. The skipper Rohit Sharma has struck his form before the mega event. KL Rahul scored a fabulous century in his comeback match against Pakistan. Kuldeep Yadav performed well. Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah are doing the job quite nicely. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are the key all-rounders in the team.

India announced its 15-member squad for the World Cup. The new faces include the stylish Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer and Shardul Thakur. All of the newcomers have been performing well and there is a bit of a dilemma for the selectors about choosing the playing XI. Axar Patel was ruled out of the squad due to injury and the ace off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has replaced him. This could be a massive moment for Ashwin. 

Talking about form, recently India defeated Australia in the 3-match ODI series. Shubman Gill topped the run-scorer table. Shreyas Iyer is 3rd on the list. Mohammed Shami was brilliant and became the leading wicket-taker. Ashwin played two matches and he took 4 wickets in 2 matches.

In the ICC events, India doesn’t have a good record against Australia. However, in the last three World Cups, India got the better of Aussies twice. Their loss came in the semifinal of the ICC CWC 2015. The recent Asia Cup 2023 title and the series win against Australia will boost the team’s morale and that’s why India are hot favourites in this World Cup.

Team Australia

They are 5-time champions and one cannot ask more than that. Though, their dominance in the 2000’s was remarkable they still hold that reputation. They know how to win big tournaments like ICC. They were knocked out of the tournament by India in the ICC CWC 2011 and in the next World Cup in 2015, they defeated India in the semi-final and advanced to the final. In the ICC CWC 2019, India beat the Aussies comfortably and this time it’s the group stage match again and we never know what would happen.

They have announced their 15-member squad and some new entrants are there. Sean Abbott, the pacer is included in the squad. Josh Inglis, the aggressive wicketkeeper-batsman also got the chance. Two important all-rounders as well as big hitters Cameron Green and Marcus Stoinis are also added to make the batting stronger. The bowling looks a bit out of shape at the moment but they have the knack of pulling out the best at crucial times.

Recently, they lost the 5-match ODI series against South Africa after leading the series by 2-0. Marnus Labuschagne was the leading run-scorer of the series and he is a part of the World Cup squad while the injured Ashton Agar has been ruled out. Travis Head, who is recovering at the moment, is added to the squad but he is likely to miss half of the World Cup. More importantly, Australia also lost the next series against India by 2-1. David Warner was the 2nd highest run-scorer followed by Labuschagne. This is going to be an exciting contest because Australia would want to avenge this series’ defeat while India would want to continue its domination.

ICC CWC 2023 IND vs AUS Match Predictions

Team India

  • Shubman Gill is in terrific form and he could provide a perfect start to India. He was the leading run-getter in the recent ODI series against the Aussies.
  • Virat Kohli can prove his point again and he enjoys batting against tough opponents like Australia. 
  • KL Rahul is in sensational form too. In the recent IND vs AUS ODI series, he scored back-to-back fifties.
  • Ravindra Jadeja could be the pick of the bowlers because it’s a turning track and he could be lethal against right-handers.
  • Ravi Ashwin has been brilliant in these conditions and this Chennai pitch suits his bowling. Therefore, at his home, he can turn the game in his favour and can pick a few wickets as Australia does have some left-handers.

Team Australia

  • David Warner has been in excellent touch with the bat. He scored 3 consecutive fifties in the recent IND vs AUS ODI series.
  • Mitch Marsh might open the innings and he would go all guns blazing to provide a great start to Australia.
  • Glenn Maxwell has played a lot in India during the IPL tournaments and he knows these turning tracks very well. Hence, he could pick some wickets and score runs too. 
  • Marnus Labuschagne is a good player of spin and therefore he can counterattack the Indian spinners. He also scored valuable runs in the recent IND vs AUS ODI series.

Both are one of the biggest rivals in cricket. India would be happy with its recent performances both in the Asia Cup 2023 and in the IND vs AUS 3-match ODI series. Their main concern would be to pick the right playing XI according to the conditions. Australia had a disappointing series defeat against both South Africa and India but they can pack a punch anytime. Their concern would be their bowling line-up which looked out of shape. Can India win the tournament opener or will the Aussies strike first?
