Australia’s Strengths:- Batting has been one of the key strengths for Australia to return to their best performance in the tournament. Be it Travis Head (who initially missed the tournament due to a fractured hand), Mitchell Marsh (426 runs), David Warner (528 runs) or Glenn Maxwell (398 runs), Steve Smith or Marnus Labuschagne, everyone has Has contributed in batting.
With the ball, leg spinner Adam Zampa has been in top form, taking 22 wickets. Whereas, the part-time off-spin of Maxwell and Head has given them good support. The performance of fast bowlers Josh Hazlewood (2/12), Mitch Starc (3/34) and captain Pat Cummins (3/54) before the final is even more heartening for Australia.
Weakness:- Against India in Chennai, Australia were kept in control on a spin-friendly pitch as the spin trio of Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin combined to take six wickets. Kuldeep and Jadeja are in top form, Tabrez Shamsi and Keshav Maharaj caused some trouble to Australia’s batsmen in the semi-finals, batting weakness against spin remains.
Opportunity:- Australia is looking for its sixth Men’s ODI Cricket World Cup title after last winning the title in 2015. He has a good ability to perform brilliantly in the knockouts and in big matches like the final, he is known to give his best performance.
They won the 2003 World Cup against India and also defeated them in this year’s World Test Championship final.
Threat:- It has been very difficult for teams in the competition to stop India’s dominance with bat and ball. Everyone from one to eleven is in top form and they have destroyed the opponents well. Australia’s main challenge in the World Cup final will be to stop the invincible Indian juggernaut.
