The openers of India have already started their batting against the ICC World Cup Champion Australia. After playing 8 overs the openers have collected total 38 runs.
Shikhar Dhawan was batting on 24 and Rohit Sharma on 9. It seems the Indian team has intended that they must win at any cost.
Captain Virat said, “Today is a wonderful day and the pitch is dry and I hope it’s going to get lower and slower as the game goes on”.
Kohli also added that they must win the match today and their fielding and bowling lines both are balanced and they don’t need to change anything.
On the other hand, the reigning champions Australia have won both their games in this World Cup so far. They picked the same side that edged out the West Indies by 15 runs in Nottingham on Thursday.
For fielding purpose, Kohli said, “Our bowling line and fielding is now balanced and hope we will win the match against Australia today”.
The captain of Australia Aaron Finch said, “I thought If I’d won the toss I would go for bat first but now it doesn’t matter”.
“Maintaining run is the main target for Australia” he added.
