ICC CWC 2019 India vs Australia 14th Match Preview Prediction – Australian team always has one special thing which most other teams lack. The word is ‘Resilience’ and there is no doubt why they have five trophies to their name. While most other teams succumb to pressure created due to early wickets, the Australian side creates history out of them. Though some would credit some umpiring mishaps which favoured them in their journey to victory, their ‘never back out’ attitude on the field must be given due credit. But when they face India in their next match, this attitude would be tested the most while their patience would be counted as well. India, on the other hand, will be hopeful of another victory against Australia for it has come aplenty in the last few years and Australia no longer possesses the threat it once used to. Keeping all of this in mind, the contest should be a mind-boggling one, a contest which lifts the value of cricket.
ICC CWC 2019 India vs Australia 14th Match Preview Prediction – India Team
Though the start for team India in the world cup was late, obviously raising some genuine questions, the start to its campaign was perfect in routing out South African challenge at the very first. The advantage that it puts India into is that it sends out a loud and clear message to the teams to beware of the Indian team which has arrived. Australia which had a tough match at hand against West Indies seem quite vulnerable, something which India would most likely use. While they would take heart in their series victory against Australia in Australia, they would like to also level their scores of their defeat in the previous world cup semi-final.
The batting looks quite solid as there were some solid contributions from the batsmen barring a few. While Rohit Sharma was brilliant in taking his team home, his partner Shikhar Dhawan who had a great outing in England last time looked edgy and out of sorts. The team would want Dhawan to fire as he is amongst the most important members of the team. With Rahul batting at number four and looking good, Virat Kohli too would want to make for his failure against South Africa when QDK took almost an impossible catch to dismiss him. He is one batsman who has not failed in consecutive innings and most pundits would bet for a big inning from him in the match against Australia. For a big player like him, big matches often bring the best out. Australia must also be wary of him in the coming match as well. Kedar Jadhav did not get to bat against South Africa but MS Dhoni looked in a fine touch unless he tried launching one which refused to be launched and lobbed straight up. Hardik Pandya, in his brief stint, was marvellous as always.

Bowling was excellent as far as Bumrah and Chahal were concerned. While Bumrah was up to the mark with his tight lines and often surprising bouncers, Chahal was spot on too with his variations. Bumrah’s deliveries often changed angles and were sometimes unplayable. The teams would often want to play him out. The other bowlers bowled well in tandem as well. so, when India takes the field again, do not expect them to make a change with the winning combination as they haven’t tinkered a team which wins the matches.
India Team: Virat Kohli (capt), Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Shikhar Dhawan, MS Dhoni (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Kedar Jadhav, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Hardik Pandya, KL Rahul, Mohammed Shami, Vijay Shankar, Rohit Sharma, Kuldeep Yadav.
India Expected XI: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Bhubaneshwar Kumar, Mohammad Shami, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
ICC CWC 2019 India vs Australia 14th Match Preview Prediction – Australia Team
It is never practical to undermine any opposition and when they are Aussies, you never dare. Such has been their run in the world cups that signing them off hasn’t quite been easy. The Indian team too would not be in a hurry to sign their opponent out as they know what they are really made off. The Australian team has started off well in the tournament by a convincing win against Afghanistan while the match against West Indies went a little over the edge courtesy their top order failure.
The batting needs a lot of changes but the team management would consider the team’s performance against West Indies a fluke and move on for they would be extra cautious in their approach against India. Warner who was all words to Finch about how to deny West Indian wickets, he could not himself contain and cut one straight to the point. While the team expects him to bat longer against India, he would also be the one guiding the team to a respectable total. Khawaja and Finch have to bat longer. Steve Smith was brilliant the other day but Maxwell and Stoinis would want to contribute more as well. Had it not been for Alex Carey and Nathan Coulter Nile who hit the highest for a number eight batsman in world cup history, Australia would be staring at a straight loss. But their resilience over the past has often paid them in good deeds.

The bowling was heavily dependent on Starc and Cummins who bowled his three of first four overs maiden. While NCN and Stoinis leaked a lot of runs, the spinners too were unable to cut the flow of runs. Zampa would be expected to contribute more.
Australia Team: Aaron Finch (capt), Jason Behrendorff, Alex Carey (wk), Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Shaun Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, David Warner, Adam Zampa
Australia Expected XI: Aaron Finch (c), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey (wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Adam Zampa
