India and Australia are set to meet in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023 after 20 years. The final match is scheduled to take place on Sunday (19 November) at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.
Both teams began their World Cup 2023 campaign by facing each other, and will now end the edition by competing in the final on Sunday (19 November 2023). India has had an impressive run in the tournament, winning all 10 of their matches, including the semi-final against New Zealand. Australia, despite a rocky start with two losses, secured seven consecutive wins, including the semi-final against South Africa.
This will be the first ODI World Cup final meeting between India and Australia in 20 years, with India finishing as runners-up in the 2003 ODI World Cup. The final match will take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, with clear weather conditions forecasted, eliminating the possibility of rain affecting the match.
In the event of rain, the ICC has a reserve day for the World Cup final, with no reduction of overs in the final match. If both the first and reserve day matches are washed out due to rain, the team with a better position in the points table from the league stage will be declared the winner. India holds the advantage based on their net run rate, making them the likely winners of the ICC World Cup 2023.
