What to Expect:
The weather’s been stereotypically fickle around England over the last couple of days. Bouts of heavy rain have been followed by bright sunshine, and the stiff breeze has made it rather challenging for every non-local to get used to. And it wasn’t surprising to hear Kuldeep Yadav inquiring about the weather for Sunday. India have historically got cold feet against the Australians in World Cups, and haven’t won a league match against their arch-rivals since 1987. But a packed Oval, swarming with blue, should be the perfect venue for them to turn the corner and put one over Finch & Co.
Did you know?
- Australia lead India 8-3 in World Cups – the joint most wins by a team against an opponent in the history of tournament
- India and Australia have played a World Cup match at The Oval in 1999, which was won by Australia (by 77 runs)
- Australia is the only side against whom Kuldeep averages 30+ (33.26) and has conceded at greater than five per over (6.08).
- Steven Smith’s last seven innings in the World Cup: 95, 72, 65, 105, 56*, 18 & 73
Australia’s lack of trouble against Kuldeep might not be the only reason why India could consider Ravindra Jadeja as an option. Jadeja’s inclusion will strengthen the lower-order batting significantly, and also open the door for Mohammed Shami to come in, thereby adding a lot more sting to the bowling attack, in addition the kind of pace that the West Indians used to unsettle the Australians in Nottingham.

This is a contest that could get India thinking about their combinations. Kuldeep Yadav has admitted that Shaun Marsh is one of the few players who has played him really well, especially when India went to Australia. Marsh has a strike-rate of 92.19 against Kuldeep, and even better has been Usman Khawaja who averages 94 against the wrist-spinner. And it might be good enough to keep him in the playing XI despite his untoward knock against the West Indians, which will ensure the Indians target him with bouncers. The only other change they might contemplate is more weather-driven, and a gloomy morning could well get Australia to harbour thoughts of giving Jason Behrendorff a go, considering he’s got a good record against Rohit and Kohli.
