India defeated Australia in the Warm Up Match for the World Cup 2011
World Cup 2011 Warm Up Match – India vs Australia
Two of the favourites when it comes to the World Cup 2011 of Cricket will be going head to head for the Warm up match on Sunday 13 February 2011 and it will be interesting to see how they go about this match as many big teams are playing in the Warm up matches and they will look to go into the World CUp on the back of some good performences and confidence under their belt. Aussies are coming into this match on the back of winning 6-1 series win over England in Down Under but before that series they had a awfull 2010 to their standards and they struggled against India when they visited them last year.
India on the other hand wil be looking to use the home conditions going in to the big match, and thye might give some young players a chance in this one to prove themselve before the world cup starts and this way they can get some new combinations and try out a few things in the bowling and batting. Indians will be going with the Sachine Tendulkar as the middle order batsman while Gautam Ghambir and Virender Sehwag will open the innings for them.
