India spin to victory in Chennai challenge

We review the India v Australia match in Chennai – a tense contest that India won by six wickets.

Talking points: 

  • India’s threat with their seamers as well as spinners
  • How this World Cup is rewarding Test-quality spinners
  • Australia’s lack of depth in the spin department
  • Pat Cummins’ problem at first-change
  • The Kohli-Rahul partnership
  • Bangladesh, South Africa, New Zealand, and India – the early favorites
  • How is 2 for 3 different from 80 for 3 when chasing 200?
