PITCH REPORT – Ravi Shastri is near the deck. He informs that pitch number 5 will be used for the final, which was also used for the game between India and Pakistan. Mentions that this surface has a different look than that game and says that it has been left open to dry for quite a long period. Shares that the pitch is very dry and patchy, especially in the areas where the spinners will land. Feels that neither team’s decision at the toss should be influenced by the dew factor, and further adds that India will not be too bothered either way.

Adds that they should come out hard in the field as they did against South Africa and throw punches early. Shastri adds that looking at the pitch, it is easy to be carried away, but feels that it is important to watch the ball as it leaves the hand. Hayden reckons that Adam Zampa will be the X-factor with the ball considering the dry nature of the surface and states that one of their top three batters will have to be the X-factor with the bat. Shastri ends by saying that India should carry on where they left off and should not think too much.

With performances lined up before, during, and after the game, the final showdown of the 2023 ODI World Cup promises to be a spectacle like no other. The tone will be set by the Suryakiran Aerobatic Team, part of the 52nd Squadron of the Indian Air Force, through their air show. That will be followed by the ‘Champions Parade’ during the innings break, where BCCI will felicitate past World Cup-winning captains. Moreover, there will be musical performances and a laser show during the drinks break of both innings as well as the innings interval to keep you entertained.

Australia, on the other hand, faced early criticism with two losses but rallied with eight consecutive wins, including a tough semi-final against South Africa. Depending heavily on the top three – Travis Head, David Warner, and Mitchell Marsh – their middle order is a concern, hoping for Glenn Maxwell’s explosive form. They also have a tough decision to make whether to play Steven Smith and Marnus Labuschagne together or drop one of them. Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood regained rhythm in the semis, and Adam Zampa remains a consistent bowler as their leading spinner. Pat Cummins’ decision-making and calmness under pressure will be crucial while he continues to contribute with both bat and ball. Australia aims to replicate early pressure on India as they did in the first game, but the home advantage, form, and crowd support favour the hosts. It’s a clash between India’s quest for a third trophy and Australia’s bid for a sixth. The outcome awaits. Toss and team news in a bit.

India have made the ODI World Cup final after 12 years lifting the trophy on home soil in 2011. The statistics favour the Men in Blue as the last three World Cups have been won by the host nations. With a solid record of ten consecutive wins, Rohit Sharma’s quick starts, Shubman Gill’s pressure on opponents, and Virat Kohli’s anchoring, India boast a well-balanced team. Kohli is the leading run-scorer with 711 runs while Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul have been fantastic in the middle order. Mohammed Shami leads the bowling charts with 23 wickets, supported well by Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah. The spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja could be the game-changers just like they were in the first game where they defeated the Aussies. Seeking redemption for the 2003 heartbreak, India is determined to clinch the trophy on home soil.
