The Australian Cricket Team's World Cup 2019 has started off on a positive note, with their key players like David Warner, Steven Smith, Pat Cummins and Mitchell starc all in brilliant form. They are the only team with New Zealand who are undefeated in this edition, including in the warm-ups, and will look to carry that form forward when they meet India at The Oval in London on Sunday. 

However, their top-order struggled against the well-directed bouncers against West Indies, and with Ricky Ponting stating that Indians could adopt a similar tactic in this upcoming game against them, the Aussies should be on their toes. Players like Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have troubled the batsmen with their well-directed deliveries in the past, and they will aim to do just that in this clash as well. 

Both India and Australia rely very heavily on their top-order to fetch runs. Their middle order looks wobbly but both teams have threatening pacers with the world's best playing for them. However, India's spin twin of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav, who have been spelling trouble in the last year and who picked up 5 wickets combined against the South Africans, will be the key here. With the Australians not as strong against spin, the duo could hold the edge. 

Hence, India walk into the game as favourites due to the presence of their spinners.

As much as I support India, have to say with Steve Smiths form back on track it’s going to be a hard one to predict..hope Kohli pulls himself together and contributes some runs for his team
