|Venue||Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad|
The two best teams of the tournament, India and Australia, will deservingly meet in the World Cup final. India have been on a roll in the World Cup, winning all the 10 games they have played, including a win over New Zealand in the semifinal. India have hardly put a foot wrong en route to the summit clash, with every player of the squad giving their best performance.
Australia also made a remarkable turnaround in the World Cup after losing the first two games to India and South Africa. The Pat Cummins-led side won all the following eight games, including the semifinal against South Africa. Australia in a tournament final is as dangerous as any team.
Let’s take a look at the dream11 team prediction for this match.
The pitch at the Narendra Modi Stadium has been a belter of a surface and once again a good batting surface is expected. However, there may be some help on offer for the spinners as the ball has turned in every match where India has been involved.
It will be bright and clear and the temperature will range between 33 and 21 degrees. There is no threat of rain and we are going to have an uninterrupted match.
Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis (wk), Marnus Labuschagne, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (c), Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
No changes are expected in both teams and they will for sure play with the same combination that featured in their respective semifinals.
Australia have a better head to head record but India have enjoyed more success against Australia in the last few years.
|Matches||IND Won||AUS Won||Tie||No Result|
|Batters||Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (C), David Warner, Travis Head, Steve Smith|
|Bowlers||Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood, Mohammed Shami (VC), Jasprit Bumrah|
Virat Kohli has been in stellar form in the World Cup. He is the leading run scorer of the tournament, with 711 runs in 10 games, with three centuries. Kohli has played a significant role in India’s juggernaut in the World Cup and will be eyeing another good show in the final.
Rohit Sharma has also been equally brilliant. Rohit has not got many fifties and hundreds like Virat Kohli but he has set the tone right with aggressive batting display at the top. Rohit’s innings have ensured that the team has a great platform for a big score.
Mohammed Shami has been brilliant for India. He did not start in the playing XI but ever since he has come into the team, he has been on fire. Shami has taken 23 wickets in the tournament so far, including 7 wickets in the semifinal against New Zealand.
Travis Head can make a big impact in the final. While Head has blown hot and cold in the tournament, his intent at the top can leave the opposition reeling. Head can get a quickfire 50 or 100 and put Australia on top.
Hazlewood can be challenging for the Indian batters to face. The pacer is very good in bowling tight lines which won’t allow Indian batters to play their natural game. If there is any swing on offer, he becomes even more dangerous.
