Laxman has often given his opinion throughout the ICC World T20 2016, and his point of view is often taken in high regard given the enormous international cricket experience he had in his career. He is considered to be one of the most artistic and elegant Test batsmen India has produced in the past two decades. MS Dhoni will captain the Indian team in the match whereas Steven Smith will call the shots for Australia.  It is difficult to pick a clear favourite in the match and it is expected to be a thrilling encounter.
