India will clash with Australia in their first World Cup Match to be played at the M Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, October 8, 2023. Match start time is 2:30 PM.
Australia wins the toss – will bat first.
Aussie skipper Pat Cummins is optimistic, he said, “We’re in a really good spot, we’ve got a good balance between game time and being fresh. Head is still in Adelaide, and Stoinis is not ready yet.”
Rohit Sharma thinks the pacers will benefit from the pitch. He said, “The conditions are there for the bowlers, slightly on the slower side; the ball will turn as the game goes on. We’ve covered all our bases. Unfortunately, Shubman didn’t recover in time. Ishan will replace him.”

There is a 10% chance of a slight drizzle at the start of the match, but it is unlikely to cause any delays.
India and Australia played at this same ground six months ago, and Australia’s score of 269, which was four short of the average first-innings total here in the last five games, was enough to win the match.
