IND vs AUS Player Stats for World Cup 2023 Final – How Australia bowlers have fared against India in ODI?

Updated on: Nov 20, 2023 1:08 pm IST

Australia's pace trio consists of Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, and Josh Hazlewood.

India reached the finals with a fantastic performance in the league matches, carrying that momentum against all odds into the semi-final. The standout feature of India’s remarkable showing has been their batting. Except for the 29th match against England, where their batting struggled, the team has consistently performed exceptionally well, comfortably chasing down targets and setting imposing totals.

India started their World Cup journey against the same Australian side they’ll face once again to conclude the competition on November 19th. Both teams clashed only once in this tournament, and Australia’s batting was the key factor in their loss, scoring just 199 runs. Team India managed to chase down that total in 42 overs, losing only four wickets in the process. Virat Kohli contributed 85 runs, and KL Rahul scored 97. The Indian team aims to repeat that performance, aspiring to fulfill their dream of winning the trophy after twelve years. Meanwhile, Australia, eager for revenge, are striving to secure the cup for the record sixth time.

Although considering India’s current batting form, Australia’s task is not going to be that simple. While dealing with Australia, Indian batters are in for a challenging test, given their world-class bowlers and the fact that they are gaining momentum as the knockout stage progresses.

Let’s have a look at the top five Australian bowlers who fared brilliantly against India in the ODI.

Player Matches Wickets Average Economy rate Best Figure
Adam Zampa 22 34 33.20 5.67 4/45
Pat Cummins 20 26 37.03 5.24 5/70
Mitchell Starc 18 27 34.25 6.02 6/43
Josh Hazlewood 10 15 32.26 5.34 3/38
Glenn Maxwell 31 8 90.62 5.83 4/40

Australia’s pace trio has a strong record against India’s current top-order batters, and it would be interesting to see how the Indian batters fare in such crucial games. Kohli, the tournament’s current leading run-scorer, has been dismissed five times by Hazlewood, who also dismissed Captain Rohit Sharma for a duck in a league-stage match in Chennai.

According to sources, if the wickets in Ahmedabad favor spinners, Indian batters will face tremendous challenges dealing with Zampa, who has taken 34 wickets in ODIs against India. This places him at the top of the current Australian ODI squad.
