"Dave was pretty shaken up", Aaron Finch revealed at the press conference later in the day, adding that the youngster looked in good spirits and hoped that he's up and running soon.

India's quest for glory will face a stern test in formidable Australia, forcing Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to put their thinking caps on and contemplate a tactical rejig, as one of the World Cup's most storied rivalries resumes on Sunday.

Historically, India has struggled against Australia, particularly on the World Cup stage. Two of those Indian victories were in the Asian sub continent, where conditions are far from what it will be in England.

Where will the India vs Australia World Cup 2019 match be played?

Australia are five-time world champions, while India has lifted the title twice.

According to former Pakistan skipper Wasim Akram, Australia are in a red-hot form as they have won their last ten ODI matches - out of which three were against India. However, Australia set India a tough target of 329 and bundled India out for 233 to advance to the finals and eventually regain the World Cup. In a pulsating game, India found itself in trouble after the team was reduced to 187-5 while chasing 261.

What will happen when the two sides meet today at The Oval stadium in London?

At the moment, Australia are gearing up to take on India on 9th June in Oval after back to back wins against Afghanistan and West Indies. Fox Sports will broadcast the match live for the viewers in Australia. Hotstar will live stream the match in the Indian subcontinent via the app and website.
