India will take on Australia in a crucial Super 10 on 27th March Sunday, at 7:30 PM encounter to decide who will make it to the semi-finals from Group 2 alongside New Zealand. The match will be played at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium in Mohali, which has hosted only two games in the tournament so far.
Prior to the start of the high-stakes clash between the Indians and the Aussies, here's our analysis of what may be in store:
PCA IS Bindra Stadium Mohali, Weather Conditions
Going by the forecast for Sunday, the weather is least likely to cause any trouble during the India-Australia encounter. It has been clear in Mohali for the past few days and the same trend is set to continue come tomorrow as well.
Mohali Pitch Report
Both T20 World Cup matches played at Mohali so far have been high-scoring affairs and we can expect a flat batting track on Sunday as well. It will be quite a relief for the Indian team who have encountered rank turners in their 3 previous games.
Although MS Dhoni has been in favour of batting second after winning the toss, he might want to re-consider his choice as teams batting first have won both matches at Mohali. However, the pitch should remain true throughout the duration of the match.
It is now reported that pitch has been changed to turning track on hosts’ request.
India vs Australia, Today’s Match Prediction
It is difficult to pick a clear winner in this encounter, but Australia certainly hold a slight edge over the hosts. They lost a narrow game to New Zealand but have bounced back well to beat both Pakistan and Bangladesh in back-to-back games.
India, on the other hand, were handed a thrashing by the Kiwis and almost lost their game to Bangladesh. However, Team India's recent T20I form against the Aussies has been brilliant and it would give them confidence going into the match.
