New Delhi: IND vs AUS Pitch Report: The stage is set, there is a final atmosphere all around. Now only one night is left to decide the champion of ICC World Cup 2023. Team India will face five-time champion Australia in the title match on November 19. Considering the performance of Rohit’s platoon in the tournament, the Indian team is being considered a strong contender. However, the Kangaroo team, which won 8 consecutive matches and made it to the finals, has a lot of experience in playing title matches.
How is the Ahmedabad pitch?
The final match of the World Cup 2023 between India and Australia (IND vs AUS) is to be played at the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad. Spin bowlers dominate this ground of Ahmedabad. Along with this, it is believed that the final match between India and Australia will be played on a black soil pitch, on which the spinners will get a lot of help. On this ground, batsmen can score a lot of runs after testing the crease. However, even in the final it is certain that the ball will stick to the bat a little and scoring runs will not be so easy.
What do the figures say?
Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium has hosted a total of 32 matches so far. Of these, 17 matches have been won by the team batting first while 15 matches have been won by the team chasing. In a pressure match like the final, the captain will want to decide to bat first after winning the toss, which will be the same decision considering the pitch. The average score in the first innings on this ground has been 237, while the average score in the second innings has been 207.
Rohit will play master stroke in the final
Captain Rohit Sharma has not tampered with the playing eleven in the World Cup 2023. After Hardik’s dismissal, Rohit has fielded the same eleven players in every match. However, the Indian captain is preparing to play a master stroke in the final match against Australia. If reports are to be believed, Narendra Modi can give a chance to Rohit R Ashwin in the playing eleven in the title match to be held at the Cricket Stadium.
The blame may fall on Siraj
In fact, the pitch on which the final match is to be played between India and Australia is expected to provide a lot of help to the spin bowlers. Secondly, Ashwin’s record against Ahmedabad and Australia has always been strong.
If Ashwin comes in the playing eleven then Mohammad Siraj may have to sit out. Ashwin’s experience in a big match like the final can also be beneficial for Rohit. Ashwin has also been seen practicing vigorously in the nets. Along with this, Siraj’s performance in the last few matches has not been anything special.
