India's campaign in the World Cup it is hosting faces its biggest challenge early in the knockout stages.
The high-profile match between original favorite India and three-time defending champion Australia is eagerly awaited in a country almost obsessed with cricket. But sadly for Indian cricket fans, home advantage may not stand for much on Thursday.
Not only has the Indian Premier League made the country a second home for many players in the opposing squad, Australia also has a superb record on Indian soil.
Australia has won four of six bilateral limited-overs international series in India, with a win-loss record of 16-10.
