A standout performer for India, Hardik Pandya, showcased his all-round capabilities by scoring a well-constructed half-century and securing a crucial wicket. In contrast, Australia’s latest Super 8 outing saw them stumble against Afghanistan, losing by 21 runs. Despite a resilient 59-run innings from Glenn Maxwell, Australia couldn’t reach the target set by the Afghans.

These results have further defined the standings in Group 1. India sits comfortably at the top of the table with a perfect score of 4 points from their matches, while Australia is in second place with 2 points. The upcoming match between India and Australia is crucial as both teams aim to either maintain their dominance or improve their standing in the Super 8 stage.

Historically, India has had the upper hand over Australia in T20 internationals, boasting 19 wins to Australia’s 11. However, the margin is much narrower in T20 World Cup encounters, with India leading 3-2. This adds an extra layer of excitement and anticipation for fans and players alike as they prepare for what promises to be a thrilling contest.

Both teams are eager to sustain their momentum and secure a victory in this high-stakes match, which will significantly impact their journey in the tournament. The stage is set for a riveting game of cricket that will not only showcase the skills and strategies of two of the world’s top cricketing nations but also potentially redefine the dynamics of the Super 8 standings.

Arshdeep Singh has shown a tendency to be expensive at times, but his knack for taking wickets is undeniable, with 12 scalps in just five games so far. On the other hand, Jasprit Bumrah has been almost unhittable, conceding just one boundary in two Super 8 matches. With Australia boasting several left-handed batsmen, the key question for India is whether they will field both Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja or opt to give Yuzvendra Chahal a rare opportunity.

Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (C), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Arshdeep Singh, Jasprit Bumrah

Australia is expected to counter the Indian batting might of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma with a spin-heavy strategy. If Ashton Agar is included alongside Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell, it will be intriguing to see which of their pace stalwarts, Mitchell Starc or Josh Hazlewood, will have to sit out. Both sides feature illustrious names who have struggled with form lately. For India, Kohli and Rohit have had their ups and downs with the bat, while Australia’s pace duo of Starc and Hazlewood has also been below their usual standards.

Probable XI: David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh(c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade(wk), Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
