Match 19: 7th December 2018 at 5:00 PM IST
The reigning champions and Pool B table-toppers Australia would be looking to round off the league stage with a win when they meet China on Friday.
Australia have made a near perfect start to their title defence with comfortable wins over Ireland and England. Coming into the fixture, the Kookaburras may try out a few combinations before all-important last 8 games.
China, on the other hand, have managed to draw the two games they have been involved in and would be quite happy if they can add one more here. They are sitting at the second spot on Pool B tally with an assured playoff berth.
Head-to-Head (*since 2013)
