The world is eagerly waiting to witness the faceoff between India and Australia at the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2023 in Chennai. The MA Chidambaram stadium will be hosting the India vs Australia Cricket World Cup match and it is expected to be a nail-biting match.
The 2023 ODI Cricket World Cup is a major chance for the Rohit Sharma-led team to win the title after 2011. India, which first became a champion in 1983, last won the title in 2011 but wasn’t able to repeat the feat in the next two editions – 2015 and 2019 – and got knocked out in the semifinals on both occasions.

India is expected to be drop star batter Shubman Gill from the playing XI due to his illness. On Friday morning, it was reported that the star opener was down due to fever.
On Friday, head coach Rahul Dravid provided an update on Gill’s health. While Dravid didn’t confirm whether the young opener would be available for the Australia game, he didn’t out-rightly deny Gill’s potential involvement either. “He’s certainly feeling better today,” Dravid said during a press conference.
