Teams Analysis

India (IND):

They are the undefeated team in their group. With 2 victories back to back in the Super 8, they are inches close to the Semis. In this team there hasn’t been a single contribution to the winning cause, all the 11 playing members are giving their full contribution. Although their bowling has been much more balanced than their batting.       

Wicket-keeper batter Rishabh Pant is currently the team’s leading runs scorer with 152 runs in 5 matches. Though he didn’t score any 50+ knock yet, his contribution with the bat makes a valuable addition to the scoreboard for the team. His best came against Pakistan where he scored 42 runs. His strike rate is 135.71 till now. 

Skipper Rohit Sharma got a good start against Ireland in their first match where he scored 52 runs but after that he only managed 47 runs in the next 4 matches. Though in most of the times he gave his team a destructive start, was unable to carry that momentum to much longer. His strike rate is 125.32. On the other hand, Virat Kohli is looking to get back his touch as he scored 37 runs in the last match. Till now he has scored 66 runs.  

Suryakumar Yadav also supported the team in the middle order and has scored 118 runs till now with a strike rate of 129.67. He scored 2 half-centuries till now and the best came against Afghanistan where he scored 53 runs. Hardik Pandya supported the team well in both the departments as he scored 89 runs till now with the bat and the best was against Bangladesh where he scored unbeaten 50 runs. With the bowl, he got better stats as he got 8 wickets till now and has an economy of 6.47.   

In the bowling unit, Arshdeep Singh is leading the team in terms of wickets with 12 wickets to his credit. He got wickets in all the matches he played and had an economy of 7.05. Jasprit Bumrah is maintaining his consistency with the bowl and is having economy of just 3.42 and got 10 wickets to his name. Due to his brilliant bowling, the opposition hardly scores runs easily.  

In the spin department, Kuldeep Yadav got 5 wickets in just 2 matches and has been dangerous in the middle overs.

Australia (AUS):

A must win situation for this team to make their chances bright for the Semis. After registering a loss against Afghanistan in their last encounter it took them too little on the backfoot. Now they have to perform combined to get the results into their favour. Till now they have been performing well in both the departments. 

In the batting unit, Travis Head has been looking brilliant with the bat as he scored most runs for the team. Under his belt he scored 179 runs and had a strike rate of 151.69. He got just one half-century to his name and that came against Scotland where he scored 68 runs. His partner David Warner is also getting some healthy knocks with the bat and has managed 172 runs till now. His strike rate is 140.98 and has got 50+ knock till. 

Their most valuable player this session has been Marcus Stoinis who not only contributed with the bat but also showed his brilliancy in the bowling department. With the bat he got 167 runs and had a strike rate of 168.69. Also he has 2 half-centuries to his name. While with the bowl he got 8 wickets till now and has an economy of 7.31. 

Glenn Maxwell who struggled with the bat in the previous matches, got his rhythm back in the last match against Afghanistan where he was the only lone warrior with the bat from his side and he scored 59 runs there. Once again the same kind of performance is needed by the team from him. The leader of the team Mitchell Marsh has not performed up to the mark. In 6 matches he got just 88 runs.   

In the bowling unit, Adam Zampa is marking his way to the most wickets for the team till now. Under his pocket he got 13 wickets with an economy of 6.08, which is the best among the bowlers in the team. Whereas in the pace department Pat Cummins is showing his experience as he got 9 wickets till now and has an economy of 6.4 in 4 matches.
