India will take on Australia in the fourteenth match of 2019 World Cup at the Kennington Oval in London. Virat Kohli and Co will be hoping for the second win the tournament against the formidable Australian side. Rohit Sharma and Yuzenvendra Chahal were the star performer for India against South Africa. Rohit Sharma was awarded man of the match for his unbeaten 122 in the chase. He’ll be looking to carry on with his form. Spinner Yuzvendra Chahal bagged 4 wickets in his first world cup match.

Australia is on a roll having won their last 10 ODIs, including three victories on the trot against India in March. Aussies will be looking to continue their impressive run. In last game at 38/4, Australia looked dead and buried, but they managed to score 288, courtesy solid batting from middle order batsmen –Steve Smith, Alex Curry, and Coulter Nile. But the real star of the show was Nathan Coulter-Nile with his best ODI inning of 92 runs. Mitchell Starc has been one of Australia’s biggest positives in the tournament.

In the last game, the men in blue have ticked most boxes to start the campaign on winning note. Rohit Sharma played really good anchored inning after losing wicket of Dhawan and Kohli to get India over the line. India's success is heavily relying on their top three – Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli. The left-handed opener, Shikhar Dhawan form remains to be a matter of concern as he's straining to get past the twenty-thirty run score. The focus will be on him to deliver a good performance. Skipper Virat Kohli is currently number one ranked batsman in ODI. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have an excellent record against Australia in ODI, with average more than 52. Batting duo will be keen to pose a tough barrier for Australia and end their winning streak.
Bowling wise, Pacer Jasprit Bumrah is very crucial for India. He got sheer pace, nasty bouncer and a deceptive slower delivery in his repertoire that’s good enough to run through opponent batting lineup. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Hardik Pandya are also crucial elements with the ball. Spinning duo Kuldeep and Chahal offer useful variety and key breakthrough in the middle overs.

Skipper Aaron Finch and co. have played good cricket in recent times, they won all the last 10 ODI. Top order batsman, Aaron Finch, and Usman Khawaja are in great touch of late and would be keen to continue their impressive run. It's imperative for Australia, their openers score runs and set a platform for the middle order. Aaron Finch has a very good record against India, scored 1013 runs at an average of 42. He would like continuing his batting form against India. All-rounder Glen Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis need to play up to potential. They will be looking to provide quick firepower in the end. The Aussies are most likely to go in with the same combination
Bowling duo Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins look impressive in the tournament. Collectively, they picked 11 wickets in the first two games. Starc possesses vicious bouncer and Yorker that’s good enough to rattle any batsman in the world. Indian top order will be seriously tested against this bowling duo in power play.
Aaron Finch, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Alex Carey, Mitchell Starc, Glenn Maxwell, Usman Khawaja, Marcus Stoinis, Steven Smith, David Warner, Adam Zampa

There will be a 90 percent cloud cover during match time. There's not much rain forecast during the course of the day. Kennington, Oval is set to host its fourth match of the mega event. The track is good for batting as 300 runs have been scored by three out of the six teams in the event. 356 is the highest Batting score at this venue, while 285 is the average score. Out of 67 completed ODIs at the venue thus far, 39 matches went in favor of the team, batting second.
In the first three games in the 2019 world cup, side batted first won on two occasions and the chasing team won the lone game. The team batting first will be looking to put an opponent under pressure, scoring massive first innings runs.
We anticipate the team winning toss will definitely wish to bat first.
Both the sides are extremely balanced. India got highly ranked batsman and bowler in the ODI. Also, they possess many star performers in the side. On the other hand, Australia got few good top order batsmen but they have vulnerabilities in the middle order batting and bowling. We expect it to be a thrilling contest but India will have an edge considering the recent form and star performers in the side.
Thus, our prediction is that India will win this match against Australia at Kennington Oval, London.
