SARDAR PATEL Stadium, Motera in Ahmedabad will host the second quarter final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 between the world’s top two ODI teams, Australia and India on Thursday, March 23.

This match has been pegged as a "Battle of revenge".

Since March 23, 2003, the two cricket champs will meet for first time in a Cricket World Cup match on March 24, 2011. In the final of the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup, played at New Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg, Ricky Ponting and his men defeated India by 125 runs.

However, in the last eight years, Australia team have been changed. In the ongoing Cricket World Cup Australians are without Glenn McGrath, Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden. From the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup final, only Ponting and Brett Lee are playing for the Australian side.

The other side from the 2003 finals, Indians still have the same opening pair of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sahwag. In the middle Yuvraj Singh is there and leading bowlers Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh are serving the country in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011.

Even as the second quarter final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 between India and Australia that will be played tomorrow from 2:30 PM IST, millions of Indian cricket crazy fans have started praying for an Indian victory against the Australians. Good luck India!
