In the most significant clash of the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup tournament so far, defending champions Australia face the team they vanquished in the 2015 semifinal, India — the 2011 World Cup winners. Neither team has lost a game at the World Cup yet, though India have played only once, cruising past a struggling South Africa side by six wickets with 15 balls remaining, according to the ESPN report. Australia, on the other hand, stand at two wins against no losses — though their first match was essentially a foregone conclusion against Afghanistan. But with a five-wicket haul from left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc in their second game against West Indies, the five-time world champions appear to have regained their trademark intimidation factor, which will likely be on full display in the match that will live stream from London.
