India Playing 11 vs Australia – ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Match 51, Super 8


India take on Australia in a crucial Super 8 match in St. Lucia on Monday, June 24. India, along with South Africa, are the only two unbeaten teams so far in the tournament. Australia’s winning streaks ended with a shock defeat to Afghanistan in the previous game by 27 runs.

So far, India has won against Ireland, Pakistan, USA and Afghanistan. Their match against Canada was abandoned due to rain. They had a bit of annoyance against Afghanistan and lost the first few matches quickly but SKY and Hardik Pandya pulled them to safety.

Openers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will be the focus of attention when India takes on Australia in their final Super 8 match on Monday. Another major point of contention could be Shivam Dube’s place in Xi.

The likes of Sanju Samson and even Rinku Singh are waiting in the wings. Ravindra Jadeja has not been as useful with the bat as in the other two formats for India and hence there are some points to discuss.

The bowling line-up is well organized with Jasprit Bumrah leading the way along with Mohd Siraj and Arshdeep Singh. Kuldeep is expected to play on the changing West Indies tracks. Yuzvendra Chahal can come into the XI instead of someone like Ravindra Jadeja.

Rohit Sharma (center)

Rohit will open the batting for India. He hasn’t had many races for his team, but he is just one shot away from returning to fitness.

Virat Kohli

Kohli will open with Rohit. The decision to open ourselves to Him has not worked so far. He will have to be more aggressive with the bat.

Rishabh Pant (WK)

The pants will be placed at three. So far he has already taken 10 catches in the World Cup and scored crucial runs for India with the bat.

Suryakumar Yadav

SKY will be located at five. He scored 53 against Afghanistan and took Indoa to a decent total on the board. He has now surpassed Virat Kohli in the list of Man of the Match awards.

Shivam Dube

There is also talk of Dube’s position. So far in the tournament he has practically not played a striking shot. He was out for 0 against Pakistan and for just 10 against Afghanistan.

Hardik Pandya

Pandya will come in at six. He scored a crucial 32 with the bat against Afghanistan and bowled two overs for just 13 runs. Hardik, the all-rounder, performs for India.

Ravindra Jadeja / Yuzvendra Chahal

Jadeja has not been useful with the bat. He hasn’t picked too many spots with the ball either. This is where Yuzvendra Chahal can be considered against Australia in this crucial contest.

Akhar Patel

Axar Patel can come in at eight. He has been bowling crucial overs in the powerplay and also contributing crucial hits with the bat. In many ways, he has performed better than Jadeja so far.

jasprit bumrah

Bumrah will lead the attack for India. He took three for seven in his four overs against Afghanistan. He also took three wickets against Pakistan. So far, he has taken 8 wickets in four games.

Arshdeep Singh

The left-arm pacer will pair up with Bumrah from the other end. He also took three wickets against Afghanistan. He has now taken 10 wickets in four games.

Mohd Siraj

Siraj will be the third seamer in the XI. He has bowled with pace and will be crucial against Australia because of his ability to take the ball away from left-handers.

Kuldeep Yadav

Kuldeep concludes the probable XI to play against India. He played his first game of the campaign against Afghanistan and won two of 32.
