Australia may not have been perfect at the World Cup, but they are on the cusp of yet another Cricket World Cup crown this week. 

India Last 3 Results


  • India (326/5) beat South Africa (83) by 243 runs
  • India (410/4) beat the Netherlands (250) by 160 runs 
  • India (397/4) beat New Zealand (327) by 70 runs

India Form 


India have been irresistible at the 2023 Cricket World Cup, wowing fans and neutrals alike with their explosive batting, lethal bowling and desire to win. 

Nine wins in the group-stage saw the home side sweep all before them aside before they secured a comfortable 70-run win over New Zealand in the semi-final. While Virat Kohli's (117) 50th century was the main attraction of the day, it was Shreyas Iyer's 105 from 70 that forced India's total towards 400. Meanwhile, Mohammed Shami was the star of the show with incredible figures of 7/57. 

With the tournament's top run scorer (Virat Kohli - 711 runs) and best bowler (Mohammed Shami - 23 wickets) both turning out for India, they will be confident that they can notch yet another win. 

The worry for India is that they have not always come good on being the best. While they have excelled at the tournament, could the pressure of being the favourites in a World Cup Final come back to haunt them?

Australia Last 3 Results


  • Australia (293/7) beat Afghanistan (291/5) by 3 wickets
  • Australia (307/2) beat Bangladesh (306/8) by 8 wickets
  • Australia (215/7) beat South Africa (212) by 3 wickets 

Australia Form 


Australia were forced to sweat on their place in the World Cup Final in a low-scoring match with South Africa that became a World Cup classic. 

Set a modest 213 to win, Australia needed captain Pat Cummins to steer them home as they crawled to a three-wicket win. While victory is all that mattered, this was the second time in three matches in which they have struggled towards a modest total.

This match will likely be about getting runs on the board early. India boast the best bowling attack in the game right now, but Australia are not far behind, and chasing a big score under the lights will prove tough. In three of the last four times in which Australia have batted first, they have scored 350 or more. In two of their last three matches in which they have chased, they have struggled to targets of 292 against Afghanistan and 213 against South Africa. 

Glenn Maxwell provides that explosive power in the middle-order, but Australia do not really match up to India when it comes to in-form explosive batsmen. Indeed, the likes of Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne are dependable run scorers, but they are not the men you want in the middle when the required run rate is above 12.00. 

This World Cup Final could all come down to which captain wins the toss.

Verdict

This is a tough one to call as the form book says India, but Australia have been so good in World Cup Finals over the years. 

As mentioned, this could become a match that is won and loss on the toss of a coin. If Australia can back first, then I am backing them to win this one. I predict that Mohammed Shami will once again star for India, while I believe that Australia's best player in Steve Smith will stand up with a big score.
