The Cricket World Cup gets continues on Sunday morning when Australia and India lock horns (09:30 BST).

Both of these sides were eliminated at the semi-final stage in 2019, and are among the front runners to go all the way this time out.

India, with home field advantage, come in as slight favourites but this should be one of the closest matches of the tournament.

India to get home tournament off to a winning start

There are huge expectations for both of these sides coming into their first matches of the tournament, and all eyes will be on Chennai when these cricketing behemoths meet.

India are the favourites to win the entire competition and a victory here would only solidify those views further.

It won’t be an easy fight for Rohit Sharma’s side though with Australia currently ranked third in the world in the ODI format. There are plenty of heavy hitters in the Australia squad and, if they can find their feet quickly, India could find they have a very high total to beat.

Home ground advantage could prove to be all the difference in this contest though, and we’re backing India to come out on top in one of the most exciting games of the tournament.
