Mumbai (EMS). The Indian cricket team can settle a 20-year-old score with Australia on Sunday. The Kangaroos had prevented India from becoming champions by defeating India by 125 runs in the 2003 World Cup final. But this time host India has a golden opportunity to take revenge from the Kangaroos. Team India is currently performing brilliantly. Rohit Brigade is moving towards equaling the world record by winning 10 consecutive matches. How can the Indian team beat 5-time champion Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad?
On the other hand, Indian players are at the top in terms of scoring most runs and taking most wickets in the current World Cup. Star batsman Virat Kohli remains on top with 711 runs in 10 matches, while Rohit Sharma is in the top 5 with 550 runs. There is no answer to Mohammed Shami in bowling. Shami is at the top with 23 wickets in 6 matches.
India’s record in the world’s largest cricket stadium is excellent. Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium (formerly known as Motera Stadium) has won 4 matches since its renovation, including India’s massive 7-wicket win over Pakistan. Team India had defeated Pakistan in this World Cup.
Of course, the Australian team dominates India overall in ODIs, yet Team India had recently defeated them in a 3-match series at home before the World Cup. Apart from this, India had defeated Australia in the league match of the current World Cup. India had bowled out Australia for 199 runs in its first match of this World Cup. After this, after losing the first few wickets, Team India won by 6 wickets on the basis of brilliant innings of KL Rahul and Virat Kohli.
