The last time India met Australia in ODI World Cup final was in South Africa twenty years ago.
Times have changed from global favouritism to calling the shots off the field, both teams have switched places.
More than anything, Indian fans including the current Indian squad,
who tearfully watched Sachin Tendulkar top-edge that ball from Glenn McGrath at Johannesburg in 2003 would just want revenge.
Teams have preferred to bowl thrice out of four times, here at Ahmedabad this tournament.
The stat to look out for would be that, in the four games, no team has managed to score more than 300 runs.
India’s Toss has not been a problem since they have lost five out of the ten outcomes and still managed to be victorious in all of them.
Australia have lost the toss five times, including the semi-final but managed to win every time, which again says that toss has no effect on the Aussies.
For India, who start as favourites, have shown that that they will be playing an aggressive brand of cricket they have played so far in the tournament.
For Australia, throughout the tournament they have found a way to win even from jaws of loss but to do that in a final against a host nation in front of 120,000 fans, who wish to see you lose is a daunting task.
Both sides have players who could be playing in their last ODI World Cup wishing to bid farewell with one last win, but with several players with no silverware to their name,
the men in blue might be bit hungrier in their hunt to glory.
