Two world cricket superpowers collide on Sunday when India takes on Australia in London.

The two teams have shared the last five World Cups, with India's triumph in 2011 sandwiched in between Australia's victories in 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2015.

In Jasprit Bumrah and Virat Kohli, India boasts the best ODI bowler and the best ODI batsman in the world.

Australia appear to be peaking just at the right time with Steve Smith averaging 40.5 runs in the first two World Cup games and Mitchell Star taking five wickets against the West Indies.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the game.

When and where is the game?

India take on Australia at The Oval in London on Sunday, June 9. It is the first match in the British capital for both sides, as India opened their campaign in Southampton against South Africa. Australia, meanwhile, made its debut in Bristol against Afghanistan and then took on the West Indies in Nottingham.

The game starts at 10:30 a.m. local time (5:30 a.m. ET).

TV channel and live stream

The game will be broadcast in the U.S. by Willow TV and Hotstar, with a live stream available via Sling TV.

The latter is one of the official partners of Willow TV and is available across various platforms such as Apple TV, iOS, Android TV, XBOX, Chrome TV, Fire TV and Roku.

Match odds

There is little to separate these two teams and the balance of play is reflected by the bookmakers' odds. According to Oddschecker, India is a slight favorite at 4/5, while Australia begins the game as a 6/5 outsider.

Unsurprisingly, India's captain Virat Kohli is 4/1 to be the top run scorer in the game, the shortest odds of any player.

The 30-year-old, who is ranked as the number one batsman in all three formats of the game, averages 59.34 in ODIs. His World Cup, however, didn't get off to a particularly auspicious start as he was out for 18 against South Africa.


Two of the only three teams yet to taste defeat at this World Cup, India and Australia arrive into the game at The Oval in fine form.

India's belated World Cup debut couldn't have been smoother as they swatted a disappointing South Africa team aside with relative ease, shrugging off a slight wobble at the beginning of its innings.

Australia also enjoyed a soft introduction to the World Cup as they strolled past Afghanistan, before being pushed all the way by the West Indies on Thursday when they were rescued by a superb performance from Mitchell Starc.

Starc was absent from Australia's tour of India in March, but the five-time world champions did not miss him. Australia lost the first two ODIs, before rebounding in style to win the series 3-2.
