IND vs AUS: Rohit Sharma’s India and Pat Cummins-led Australia look to add another chapter to their rich cricket history as the two giants lock horns at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad in the final of World Cup 2023. Double-time World champions India are gunning for their third glory while the Aussies are looking for a sixth title in their trophy cabinet.
Meanwhile, India have equalled Pakistan’s world record in ODI cricket. This was the seventh time that the Indian team has gone with the same Playing XI in seven ODIs, which brought them level to Pakistan’s world record of 2002.
Pakistan played with the same team for seven consecutive ODI games in 2002 and the Indian team has now gone with the same Playing XI for the seventh time during the World Cup 2023.
Most consecutive ODIs with the same Playing XI:
India – 7 times in 2023
Pakistan – 7 times in 2002
The Indian team last made a change in ODIs when Hardik Pandya got injured during the Bangladesh clash on October 19. That was India’s 4th game in the tournament. The Men in Blue brought in Suryakumar Yadav and Mohammed Shami when Pandya got injured for the New Zealand game. Since then there have been no changes to the team. India faced New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Netherlands, New Zealand and Australia without a change to their team in World Cup 2023.
