Weather: There has been some rain around in London but the weather is expected to favorable on match day.

Pitch:  The pitch at the Oval is very flat usually but it has been a little slower than usual so far. Still, England managed to post a 300 plus total here as did Bangladesh. Another high-scoring match looks to be in store and I would think that 320 is a par-total for the venue.

Team News


Given Australia's troubles against the short ball against West Indies, India could look to bring Mohammed Shami - who can hurry batsmen with the bouncer, as he showed during a six-wicket haul in the Perth Test in December - into their attack.

Australia has played the same XI in both their games so far, and though some of their players haven't hit top form just yet, there isn't a compelling reason to make any changes just yet.

Squad: Aaron Finch (c), Alex Carey (wk), David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Adam Zampa, Shaun Marsh, Kane Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Lyon

How to choose

The Dream 11 team for India vs Australia ICC World Cup 2019 match is made assuming that all the players on both sides are fit and available to play. The forecast for the match is pretty decent and I should be able to see a high-scoring contest. The conditions up front, though, maybe a bit difficult to face and that should be taken into consideration as well.

Wicketkeeper: MS Dhoni has been batting quite well in the ICC World Cup 2019 so far and could play an important role in this match. He has also been at the heart of controversy regarding an army insignia on his gloves, something that may motivate him to make a statement with his bat on the field.

Batsmen: There are some tremendous batsmen that are available for selection in this match. I have tried to pick as many as our points budget will allow. David Warner, Steve Smith, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Lokesh Rahul all make it into our side.

I have left out Aaron Finch and Shikhar Dhawan from the list, even though both of the batsmen are very dangerous when they get going.

Warner has had a lot of success in the IPL recently and is very well versed with the Indian bowling attack. He has been one of the most successful batsmen in ODI cricket over the last few years and is in good form. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli love playing against Australia and will relish the challenge of scoring runs against the Australian fast bowlers.

Rohit Sharma scored a century in the previous match and I won’t be surprised if Virat Kohli scores on in this match as well. Lokesh Rahul is playing at a very important position at number 4, same as Steve Smith, and both of them should be able to score some runs as well.

All-rounders: I have picked Marcus Stoinis and Kedar Jadhav from this category. Both these players are good with the bat and will definitely bowl a few overs also. Hardik Pandya and Glenn Maxwell were available but the expensive batsmen picked meant that a few compromises had to be made.

Bowlers: I believe that the two best fast bowlers in the world are playing this match. Jasprit Bumrah and Mitchell Starc have had a huge impact in the cricket world cup already and are a must to have in your Dream11 team. Nathan Coulter-Nile did not have a great time in the previous match with the ball but his record against India is fantastic. Any runs that he scores are going to be a bonus also.

Captain and Vice-Captain: I have decided to pick Virat Kohli as captain and David Warner as vice-captain for this match.
