The Indian team’s practice session Friday was called off due to rain, leaving the Virat Kohli-led side with only one day to train ahead of Sunday’s big-ticket World Cup showdown with Australia. India travelled to London from Southampton on Thursday, a day after beating South Africa by six wickets in their tournament opener. Rain had also forced India to cancel their optional practise on the eve of the game against South Africa at the Hampshire Bowl. 

The two-time winners face a formidable opponent in defending champions Australia, who are on a 10-match winning streak, which began in India only where they overcame a 0-2 deficit to win the five-match series 3-2. 

Australia overcame Afghanistan in the first match and followed that up with a good win against West Indies in their next game. They will be up against India, who are familiar opponents, having defeated them 3-2 in the recently concluded One-Day International (ODI) series in the subcontinent. While this will be Australia’s third game of the tournament, for India it will be their second match.
