World Cup 2023: A total of four teams have competed in the thrilling ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023, setting new records along the way.

India and Australia are all set to clash in their first match on Sunday, October 8th, renewing their famous rivalry.

During Australia’s tour of India last year, a series of three ODI matches was played, with India emerging victorious in two matches, while the Australian team secured one win.

The crucial question remains: which team secured the victory in the match? The Men in Blue will face Australia after a six-year hiatus at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

In 2017, both teams battled it out at this venue, with the Kangaroo team suffering a 26-run defeat at the hands of the Indian team.

The series history shows that India won the opening one-day international in Mumbai by five wickets. However, Australia mounted a strong comeback, clinching a convincing ten-wicket victory in Visakhapatnam.

In many ways, the third match now assumes the status of a final showdown. Beyond that, the Blue Team is determined to secure their ninth consecutive series victory on home turf, following their 3-2 loss to Australia in 2019.
