ICC ODI World Cup 2023: India vs. Australia Match Preview at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai

Host India is set to kick off its campaign in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 today with a match against five-time champion Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, Team India aims to commence the tournament with a victory, while Australia is determined to put aside their recent loss in the bilateral series against India and make a strong start in the World Cup.

Chennai Pitch Conditions:

The crucial India vs. Australia match will take place on the Chennai ground, known for its spin-friendly pitch. Historically, the Chepauk pitch has proven to be highly advantageous for slow bowlers, with spinners gaining prominence as the game progresses.

Winning the toss and opting to bat first is a common strategy on the Chepauk ground because chasing targets here can be challenging. As the match advances, scoring runs becomes increasingly difficult due to the pitch slowing down. Consequently, both the Indian and Australian teams are expected to include additional spin bowlers in their line-ups.

In the 34 ODI matches played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium thus far, the average first-innings score has been around 224 runs.

Head-to-Head Records:

In Chennai, the Indian team has played 14 ODI matches at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, winning 7, losing 6, and one match ending in a draw. In contrast, the Australian team boasts an impressive record at Chepauk, winning 5 out of 6 ODI matches played there.

When it comes to their head-to-head record in the ODI World Cup, India and Australia have clashed 12 times, with India securing victory in 4 matches and Australia emerging victorious in 8 matches.
