World Cup final: India v Australia

Australia win the toss and bowl


Nov 19: Boos around the stadium as Australia win the toss and Pat Cummins opts to bowl first.

Australia captain Pat Cummins: "I think they would have gone crazy whatever I said.

"It looks a bit of a dry wicket, bowl on it during the day and back ourselves to chase whatever we need to.

"Dew is one factor, it gets quite dewy here at night. It feels like this venue has got better and better to bat so hopefully the same today.

"We've been really proud of the group. A tough start to the tournament but we haven't really put a foot wrong since.

"It's all set up perfectly, we've always had good battles with India and I'm sure it'll be the same again here."

The match is playing in Ahmedabad city at the Narendra Modi stadium, the world’s largest cricket venue. 

India beat New Zealand by 70 runs in Wednesday's semi-final; Australia defeated South Africa by three wickets in a tense game on Thursday.

India have been in top form, winning all the 10 games they’ve played so far.

Australia started off slow but came into form as the tournament progressed.

Australia are seeking the crown for the sixth time; India have won the trophy twice before.
