Two of last season's finalists may have cut the ribbon and six others may have recorded their opening speeches but after the initial clanking of the pulleys, it is anticipated that the first gears of the 2023 World Cup will be thrummed into life on Sunday. With blockbuster bookings in Chennai. Versus the top ODI side and the five-time winners, the two teams are joined at the hip with base expectations of winning the whole thing.

Australia is World Cup royalty, having won one title in each continent that hosts the event. Given their pedigree, the form leading into these events (1 win in their last 6 ODIs this time) bears little or no practical relevance to their top billing. Over the past decade, India have also started as favorites in each of these ICC events but have never actually put together a title-winning run. Rohit Sharma will carry the burden of the streak as well as the pressure of winning at home, as has been done in each of the last three World Cup hosts.

If a sense of occasion has somehow escaped India as they have traveled to both ends of the country without sending a ball in the past week, it will register on Sunday. There is scope for some early tone-setting pyrotechnics as it is hoped that the 50-over format will re-enter the public consciousness amid the celebratory mood of achieving '100 golds' at the Asian Games.

Both teams come into the game having battled gently in somewhat representative conditions with unrepresented teams in the three-match series. As for this being the real deal, the two first-time World Cup captains will admit that the difference between their teams is wafer thin. Rohit may have a better set of spinners, but Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell can prove more than a handful. Mitchell Starc is Australia's left-arm point difference but Siraj and Bumrah boast superior powerplay ability.

Even minor disruptions in their overall plan will seem out of sync. Australia are missing batsman Travis Head while India's rising star Shubman Gill is a doubtful starter. If this on-paper closeness translates onto the field, it may come down to which team can better adapt to the prospect of losing.
