India vs Australia Today Prediction: India to Win

India used the Asia Cup tournament to nurse their injured players – Bumrah, Rahul and Iyer – back to match fitness. The World Cup hosts won the Asia Cup in style and went on to beat Australia convincingly in a bilateral series.

All their batsmen – Sharma, Gill, Kohli, Iyer, Rahul, Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav – have made runs. All the main bowlers – Bumrah, Shami, Siraj, Kuldeep and Ashwin – have taken wickets. Thus, ahead of the World Cup, India appear to have got their combination right.

Ashwin has returned to the squad as a replacement for the injured Axar Patel. Hardik Pandya’s return as a back-up paceman is another bright spot. That allows India to dispense with Thakur and opt for Shami as a third fast bowler. While India have a longish tail, they have enough top order batting to compensate.

By contrast, Australia’s preparation appears to have hit a few road blocks. Their explosive in-form batter Travis Head fractured a hand in South Africa. Returning from injury, Maxwell has not made many runs. Injury has ruled out their second spinner Agar from taking part in the upcoming ICC event. However, Maxwell has bowled well enough to be considered a frontline spin partner for Zampa.

Australia have retained Head in their list of 15 while recalling Labuschagne as a back up for the batsman. Head is expected to return midway through the tournament. With or without Head, Australia have a great batting line up. However, there are a few question marks over the effectiveness of Australia’s bowling on Indian wickets.

Sharma will be the best batsman. He is fast recovering his best form. The Indian skipper would want to lead from the front and secure an important win against Australia.

Probable Best Bowler

Bumrah has made a successful comeback from injury. The star pacer has already shown that he has lost none of his incisiveness. Bumrah is likely to prove the best bowler of the match.
