India-Australia’s possible eleven in the final

Today, India and Australia will meet in the final of the 13th edition of the ICC ODI World Cup. After 20 years, these two teams are meeting again in the final of the World Cup. In 2003, India’s dream of winning the title was shattered by losing to this Ajid. Team India wants to win the title by defeating Ajid at home. On the other hand, Ajira wants to win their sixth title by defeating India.

The match will start at 2.30 pm Bangladesh time at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The interest of the fans of the two teams is at the peak of how India-Australia can come down with the eleven in the final match. It is believed that India will not make any changes in their XI in the finals as every time. In that case, it is more likely that the eleven of the semi-finals will remain unchanged.

Shubman Gill with captain Rohit in the opening. Virat Kohli is the best batsman of the tournament at three. Shreyas Iyer and Lokesh Rahul at four and five. Suryakumar and Ravindra Jadeja at six and seven respectively. And in bowling as usual Jasprit Bumrah along with Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj. Along with the left elephant Kuldeep. However, it is heard that there may be a change in the team in the final match. Because the wicket that will be played in Ahmedabad looks like a slow turner. So an extra spinner may be played. While there was optional practice on the day before the match, Ravichandran Ashwin’s bowling and batting practice for a long time fueled that possibility.

Ashwin did not play a single match in the group stage apart from the first match against Australia. He bowled well in that match too. And there are 4 left-handed batsmen in the Auji team. As a result, Rohit will need an off-spinner. And if Ahmedabad’s wicket has turn and bounce, there can be no better option than Ashwin.

In a press conference after inspecting the Ahmedabad pitch, the skipper said that the pitch will have a lot of runs. As such, an additional pace all-rounder can enter the XI. In that case, one of Cameron Green or Marcus Stoinis can enter the team. Speculation is rife as to who will drop out to make way for one of them. It is believed that the blame may fall on Mitchell Marsh. So far in the tournament, Marsh has been showing good flashes with the bat. But ultimately everything will be decided before the match.

Warner’s opening partner is Travis Head. Then Steven Smith, Marnus Labuchon, Glenn Maxwell and Jos English. If Marsh eventually survives in the team and a pace all-rounder plays more, Marnus Labuschon might be the one to burn. It is Adam Zampa who shines in the tournament with the ball. Along with that, the pace bowling trio of Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood.

India’s Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Lokesh Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj / Ravichandran Ashwin.

Australia’s Probable XI: David Warner, Travis Head, Mitchell Marsh, Steven Smith, Marnus Labuschagne/Cameron Green/Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Josh English, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa.
