IND vs AUS, Cricket World Cup 2019: Who will win today’s India vs Australia match – match predictions, playing 11s and head to head

Game 14 of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 pits two giants – India and Australia – against each other. These are the two teams who in the recent past have exchanged blows in the lead up to the event in England which sets up the contest nicely. Australia, after a forgettable 2018, are on a winning streak and have won their first two matches against Afghanistan and West Indies. India, on the other hand, have played just one match in which they beat a poor South Africa to start their campaign on a winning note.


Both team possess quality pace attacks, with Starc and Pat Cummins on one side and Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar on the other. On a rather dry Kennington Oval surface, expect both teams to not hold pack on bowling fast and short.
