It is a day of tough competition as two of the major tournament favourites take on each other here at Oval.
Talking about the two teams,both are coming up with winning momentum behind them as Australia has won both matches they played upto now and India has won the only match they played against South Africa.
Few months ago we would have said India is the clear favourite here.But after Australia won the ODI series in India and as they also defeated Pakistan by 5-0 margin in last 3 months,we can assure that Aussies are not going to let India dominate them.
Oval is a good ground to bat on and average 1 st inning score here is 249,but anyone batting first should atleast look for a score of 290 as we reckon to have some edge over the opposition.
Possible playing XI for both team as per our suggestions is as follows:
2.Aaron Finch (c)
7.Alex Carey (wk)
3.Virat Kohli (c)
5.MS Dhoni (wk)
