India (IND) vs Australia (AUS) will face the final of the ODI World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad. The Men in Blue have been the most formidable side in the competition so far as they have dominated every other team. Rohit Sharma's side has won all 10 matches so far and is the only unbeaten side in the mega event. They previously defeated Australia in the first game of their tournament at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
Australia on the other hand has come back after their poor start in the competition. Pat Cummins's side have won 8 matches in a row with the latest one defeating South Africa in the second semi-final. Adam Zampa has been the key to their success in the tournament as the leg-spinner has picked 22 wickets.
The Aussies are the five-time champions in the tournament and they lost only final back in 1975 when the mighty West Indies won the first-ever World Cup. India has had a chance to win the tournament since 2011 when MS Dhoni led India to win the prestigious trophy at home.
