Hosts India will begin their ICC ODI World Cup 2023 campaign with a tough challenge against formidable Australia in Chennai on Sunday. Rohit Sharma-led Team India is termed as favourites for the game.

However, the Men in Blue may miss the services of promising batter Shubman Gill who is sick. The change in the settled batting order may trouble India in the all-important game.

Head-to-head record

India and Australia have so far played a total of 149 ODIs against each other so far. However, the Aussies have an advantage of 83-56 win in their favour. As many as 10 matches between the two sides did not yield any result.

Records likely to be broken

India skipper Rohit Sharma needs a century to score his seventh ton in the ICC Cricket World Cup (ODI) which will make him the player with the most centuries in World Cup history.

Moreover, the right-handed aggressive batter is three sixes away from hitting 554 sixes in international cricket which will make him the player with most sixes in international cricket surpassing Chris Gayle (553).

Rohit is five sixes away from becoming the player with most sixes for India in ICC Cricket World Cup (ODI).

Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is five wickets away from 100 ODI wickets in India.

Men in Blue’s wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul is 31 runs away from 1000 ODI runs in India.
