Australia takes on India in their last Super 8 match in St Lucia on Sunday, June 24. The unbeaten run for the Aussies ended with their loss against Afghanistan in their previous Super 8 clash. For the Afghans, it was a historic victory as they beat Australia by 21 runs.

Australia won the toss and asked Afghanistan to bat first. They posted 148 with the bat and the total was enough in the end for Australia who were bowled out for 127. This is the first time Australia lost to Afghanistan in any format of the game. 

They are coming up against a team now against whom they won the ODI World Cup six to eight months ago. Every Indian fan remembers November 19 and would want the Men in Blue to avenge their World Cup defeat in this T20 World Cup

The Aussies have been a consistent team throughout the games that they have played. Against teams like England and Scotland, they posted totals like 201 and 180. The tournament has highlighted their batting depth once again. 

Against Bangladesh, they won by 28 runs on the DLS method. They were 100 for after just 11 overs. They have played almost the same team throughout the games and will stick to the XI that played against Bangladesh.
