Fans can watch the India vs. Australia cricket match live online and see the teams as they make some final adjustments and tune-ups before the World Cup.
The teams just spent the month of January playing a series of Test matches followed by the Tri-Series, with Australia holding the advantage over India throughout. But all that is in the past now as the teams meet in the build-up to the World Cup and India tries to defend its title.
The teams meet Sunday in Adelaide, with the match starting at 2 p.m. local time (10 p.m. GMT).
As ESPNcricinfo points out, the once-dominant India now appears to be on the outside looking in.
“India go into this World Cup not only as the defending champions but also as one of the only three teams that have won it more than once. Had they won the World T20 final against Sri Lanka in April 2014, they would have held all three big limited-overs international trophies. In the lead-up to the World Cup, they have either been the No. 1 ODI side in the world or thereabouts. Yet you wouldn’t put them among the two or three big favourites to win the tournament.”
As the report notes, India could be facing a bit of fatigue. Most of their players have gone a year without a proper break, going from international series to the India Premier League and right back to traveling the globe.
But fans who watch the India vs. Australia match live online could see India’s reigning captain take over. MS Dhoni is one of the few players remaining from the 2011 World Cup win, and his tactics, as well as his batting skills, are essential to India’s chances in the tournament.
After an injury that held him out of most of the series against Australia, Dhoni is now back in the lead for India.
