When the Indian team played its first match against Australia in the ODI World Cup 2023 on October 8, no one had predicted that the final match of the tournament would also be played between these two teams. Now on November 19, India will face the Australian team, which has won this trophy 5 times, in the final match at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. Australia’s record in ICC knockout matches has been very good so far and that is why it is not going to be an easy task at all for the Indian team to defeat them. However, Team India has so far defeated Australia four times in ICC knockout matches.
India defeated Australia thrice in ODI and once in T20 knockout.
It is not easy for any team to face Australia in ICC knockout matches. However, India has defeated the Kangaroo team four times in the knockout matches of various ICC events. When India faced Australia in the quarter-final match of the Champions Trophy in 1998, Team India won the match by 44 runs. After this, for the second time, India defeated Australia by 20 runs in the quarter-finals of the 2000 Champions Trophy in the ICC Knockout.
In the semi-finals of the 2007 T20 World Cup, the Indian team faced the strong Australian team. Yuvraj Singh played a brilliant inning in this match, due to which the Indian team won the match and also secured a place in the final. The last time India defeated Australia in the ICC knockout was by 5 wickets in the quarter-finals of the 2011 World Cup on the same ground in Ahmedabad.
