The fifth match of the ICC World Cup 2023 will be played between India and Australia on Sunday, October 8 at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
Australia and India just went head-to-head in a three-match ODI series on Indian turf. India came out on top with a 2-1 victory. India dominated the first two ODIs, but Australia made a strong comeback in the third, trouncing India in a one-sided match.
Meanwhile, India suffered a big blow as their star opener Shubman Gill has ruled out of this game with dengue, so Ishan Kishan is likely to step up to partner Rohit Sharma in the opening. Team India’s batting has been on fire, and the bowlers are holding their own.
Meanwhile, Australia’s also riding high, especially after that huge win against India in the third ODI in Rajkot. David Warner’s been in great shape, and he’s keen to keep it going. Plus, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Marcus Stoinis, Adam Zampa, and others must be aiming to maintain their momentum.
