The final match of ICC ODI World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Australia on 19 November. This match between the two teams will be held at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad where more than one lakh spectators will be present. While the Indian team is eyeing its third ODI World Cup title, Australia will try to lift the trophy for the sixth time. Both the teams have shown excellent performance so far in this tournament. In such a situation, we are going to tell you about such five player battles on which everyone’s eyes are going to be during this match.
1 – Virat Kohli vs Josh Hazlewood
The bat of former Indian team captain Virat Kohli has been seen speaking brilliantly so far in this World Cup. Australian fast bowler Josh Hazlewood can become a big challenge for Kohli in the final match, who has made Kohli his victim five times in ODIs so far. When India faced Australia during the league stage of this tournament, Hazlewood had sent Kohli to the pavilion in that match too, although before that Kohli had ensured the team’s victory with his innings.
2 – Ravindra Jadeja vs Steve Smith
One of the experienced players of the Australian team, Steve Smith’s bat has been seen speaking strongly against India in some formats. However, Smith has always been seen struggling in front of Ravindra Jadeja. Despite this, Smith has had a strike rate of 100 in ODIs against Indian spinners. Whereas Jadeja has made Steve Smith his victim five times so far in international cricket in the year 2023.
3 – Glenn Maxwell vs Kuldeep Yadav
Kuldeep Yadav has seen excellent performance with the ball so far in this ODI World Cup. In the middle overs, Kuldeep has proved to be a wicket-taking bowler for the team. In such a situation, Kuldeep can definitely become a big threat for Australia’s aggressive batsman Glenn Maxwell. Kuldeep had bowled Maxwell by trapping him in his spin during the league stage match, hence a similar performance will be expected from him again.
4 – Rohit Sharma vs Mitchell Starc
Indian team captain Rohit Sharma has been seen batting in a completely different style in this World Cup. In such a situation, Australian fast bowler Mitchell Starc can be given the responsibility of sending him to the pavilion early in the final match. Rohit’s record against left-arm bowlers has not been much better. However, despite this, Rohit has become the victim of a left-arm fast bowler only once in this tournament, in which he was bowled by Dilshan Madushanaka of Sri Lanka.
5 – Mohammed Shami vs David Warner
Australian team’s opening batsman David Warner will also be a big threat for the Indian team in this match. In such a situation, Mohammed Shami, who has bowled brilliantly in this tournament so far, is going to have a big responsibility of sending him to the pavilion. Shami has taken wickets at an average of 9.13 so far in this World Cup. During this period, Shami has made left-handed batsmen his victims 8 times. In such a situation, an exciting battle will definitely be seen between Shami and Warner.
