  • Three days ahead of the match, Hayden shared a build-up commercial on the channel broadcasting it, where an Indian is seen balancing two miniature World Cup trophies before an Australian comes and flaunts his 5 cups. 
  • Yuvi wasn’t pleased about Hayden boasting and replied that he was confident that India will take home the crown
  • Hayden then took a reference to Yuvraj’s love for sixes, courtesy his 6 sixes in an over in the 2007 World T20, to assert how much 6 would mean for Australia with five titles in the bag right now

Like Real Madrid are way ahead in the number of Champions League titles, there’s no match for Australia as they are miles away from the rest with 5 World Cup titles. Aussie great Matthew Hayden reminded, or rather boasted, about this achievement to Yuvraj Singh ahead of the India vs Australia match at the World Cup. Nevetheless, the all-rounder was not one to be overwhelmed by it as he expressed confidence in Team India being ‘Two Good’ for the Kangaroos.

Three days ahead of the match, Hayden shared a build-up commercial on the channel broadcasting it, where an Indian is seen balancing two miniature World Cup trophies before an Australian comes and flaunts his 5 cups. 

The former opening batsman termed the video ‘darn good!’  and asked Yuvraj to give him a ‘high-FIVE for #INDvAUS.’ 

Yuvi wasn’t pleased and replied that he was confident that India will take home the crown, “Stop showing off those 5 titles, Haydos. Just to let you know, we're gonna be TWO good for you in #INDvAUS on June 9! #CricketKaCrown hum #LeJayenge!! @StarSportsIndia #CWC19.”

Hayden then took a reference to Yuvraj’s love for sixes, courtesy his 6 sixes in an over in the 2007 World T20, to assert how much 6 would mean for Australia with five titles in the bag right now. He then quipped that India needs to catch up, as 3 titles, if India wins this time, would be closer to the Aussies’ five titles. 

Both the teams head to the encounter at the Oval, undefeated, India winning their only match against South Africa and Australia beating West Indies and Afghanistan. India made a steady start to the match, scoring 42/0 in 10.2 overs.
