India and Australia are just a few minutes away from the first ball of the iconic final of the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023. In an update from the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, Australian skipper Pat Cummins has won the toss and has decided to bowl first. Notably, it will be the first appearance for Indian skipper Rohit Sharma in an ODI World Cup, in the third edition of his ODI World Cup career.
Meanwhile, a few of the big records will also be at stake in this mega summit clash of the ODI World Cup 2023. With said that, here we’ll have a look at the 3 records which might be broken in the ODI World Cup 2023 between India and Australia.

Star Australian batting all-rounder Glenn Maxwell has enjoyed a brilliant run of form with the bat so far in the ODI World Cup 2023, including a historic double century to win an all-important clash for Australia against Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, Maxwell is also on the verge of achieving a unique record as he is 101 runs away from scoring 1000 runs in the history of the ODI World Cup; if he manages to score his knock, he will be
