India's highly-rated batsmen come up against a fearsome Australian pace attack in a World Cup quarterfinal that is worthy of a championship decider.
India started the tournament as the favorite due to the homeground advantage and pressure of batsman such as Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag in the lineup, but that has changed a little with some dramatic collapses in crunch games.
Defending champion Australia tasted its first defeat since the 1999 World Cup group stage when it went down by four wickets to Pakistan on Saturday.
The pace trio of Brett Lee, Shaun Tait and Mitchell Johnson is sure to test the Indian batsmen, who need to fire to cover perceived weaknesses in the bowling and fielding departments.
