Five time winners and Defending champions Australia take on a formidable Indian side at the Kennington Oval, London on Sunday. Both teams have had great starts to the tournament and will be looking to carry on the momentum going into this huge tournament.

India started off the tournament with a convincing victory against South Africa with handy contributions from the mainstays of the team. Meanwhile Australia, after breezing past Afghanistan in their opening game, had to stage a remarkable comeback against the West Indies to eventually cross the line. Both teams would be charged up and keen to make the most of this high profile encounter.

Trivia:

  • India have never won a game against Australia in the league stages of the World Cups. They have 3 games against the Aussies in World Cups and all have come in the knockout stages of the tournament.
  • Kapil Dev and Sourav Ganguly are the only Indian captains to have scored centuries in World Cups.
  • Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli have all scored two hundreds in World Cups. Among the Indian batsmen, only Sourav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar have scored more hundreds than them.
  • Shikhar Dhawan is the only active Indian cricketer to have scored a century at the Kennington Oval. He made hundreds against West Indies and Sri Lanka in the 2013 and 2017 editions of the Champions Trophy.
  • 23 centuries by Rohit Sharma in ODIs puts him on the third place among the century makers in Indian cricket.
  • 139- the number of runs required by Virat Kohli to reach 11000 ODI runs. If he does so he would be the 3rd Indian and 9th cricketer overall to achieve this feat.
