Pre-Match Analysis

India started their World Cup 2019 campaign with a superb bowling performance against the Proteas. Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah were they key elements of India's bowling attack. Jasprit Bumrah was brilliant with the new ball and Yuzvendra Chahal showed his expertise in the middle overs. The duo was succesful in restricting South Africa to 227.

Rohit Sharma's century steered the Men in Blue to victory as India chased down the target successfully with 15 balls remaining. The only concern for India will be the form of Shikhar Dhawan. The left-hander has failed to make an impact in the tournament.

Dhawan and Kohli are yet to register a big score in the mega-event. The Indian batting line-up will also consist of KL Rahul, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya. India will be hoping to post a competitive score on the board while Pat Cummins and Mitchell starc will be hoping to curb India from doing so. The duo is expected to rely on short balls to exploit the Indian batting order.

The Australian team was tested by West Indies in their previous match. After losing early wickets, the Aussies were successful in posting 288 on the board. Australia's batting order will be led by David Warner and Steve Smith.

Amid boos, both the players have the potential to turn the tide in Australia's favour. Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Zampa are expected to make a formidable bowling attack.
