India take on Australia in the final of the Cricket World Cup, in front of what will be a packed house at the 130,000 seater Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad.


It’s time. After 45 days and 47 matches, the final has arrived, with the so far invincible Indian team taking on a resurgent Australia.

Anything other than a win for the home team will be a massive surprise, but the Aussies have been proving the world wrong ever since they started their campaign with consecutive losses, winning their last eight matches in a row.

Both teams have fully fit squads to pick from, with neither side likely to make any changes from the XIs that won their respective semi-finals.

Australia did make one major change to their team for their semi against South Africa, after they sacrificed all-rounder Marcus Stoinis to accommodate both Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne in their batting line-up.

India, meanwhile, have been largely unchanged since Hardik Pandya’s mid-tournament injury, with Mohammed Shami being a revelation after coming into the team, taking 23 wickets at an average of nine.

The hosts have been a joy to watch, and victory in the final will make them just the third team in history to win a World Cup having gone unbeaten throughout. The other two teams to manage the feat? Australia in 2003. And Australia in 2007. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch India v Australia on TV and online, as well as our pick for key player to watch.

India v Australia key player to watch

Rohit Sharma (India)

Who else could it be than the Indian captain? He’s got India off to lightning starts throughout the competition, and whilst Virat Kohli has been in emperor-esque form during the competition, he scores slightly slower than his teammates.

If Australia can dismiss Sharma cheaply and get Kohli to the crease early, they have a chance of getting a foothold in the match, however slight.
