Players to watch out
Although both teams have quality players there are few players who can have a great impact in the final and can turn the game in the favor of their side.
The ODI player of the decade has been very impressive in this World Cup. He is the highest run-scorer of this World Cup and is also the highest run-scorer in a single edition of any World Cup surpassing the great Sachin Tendulkar. Virat has scored 711 runs at an average of 101.57.
After missing a few games Mohammad Shami took the place of injured Hardik Pandya and after that there was no going back. He took 23 wickets in only 6 matches he played.
This World Cup has been a roller coaster ride for Steven Smith. He is a batsman of great caliber and he knows how to make a comeback. He is always a threat to the Indian team in any form of the game. So, he will be the key for Australia tomorrow.
He is the 2nd Highest wicket-taker of this World Cup. He has taken 22 wickets. He will test the Indian batsman because he always takes wickets at crucial moments for his side so he will play a big role tomorrow.
If Australia wins tomorrow then it will be their Sixth World Cup title most for any team and if India wins then it will be their Third title.
