India will face Australia in the final of the ODI World Cup 2023 on Sunday (November 19). The match is scheduled to take place at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. India has secured a place in the summit clash of the ODI World Cup for the fourth time in history, whereas the Aussies will play in their eighth ODI World Cup final. The Men in Yellow have won five out of those, whereas India has won two out of three finals. The match on Sunday will be a repeat of the 2003 final, which was played in Johannesburg, but unlike that, this time India would like to get the better of Australia and settle the scores.
