2016 World Twenty20: India vs Australia - Players to watch out for

New Delhi: New Zealand's Ross Taylor on Saturday, labeled the India-Australia contest as the best match of this tournament.

Ross is spot on considering the high stakes involved in this Super Sunday clash at Mohali.

All the experts had India and Australia as part of their four semi-finalists before the tournament started.

With New Zealand, England and West Indies having already made it to the next round, there is a real chance of the Asian challenge ending altogether later in the day.

While Men in Blue hold a slight edge, Steve Smith's side made all the right noises against Pakistani in the last match.

India's batting has relied heavily on Virat Kohli in the tournament, while the bowling unit has responded to challenges rather effectively.

As two heavyweights collide, here are two players that are likely to have a definitive say in this all-important match.

Virat Kohli: India's batting talisman has been remarkably consistent in 2016. Many believe Kohli is the best T20 batsman in world cricket at the moment. The right-hander has time and again showed his ability to adapt to different wickets. The 27-year-old loves playing against the Aussies and can be banked upon to play another decisive knock against them in this knockout match.

​Adam Zampa: The young leg-spinner has been one of the finds of this tournament. He is unafraid to toss the ball up even against the most explosive hitters. With the Mohali track expected to aid spinners, Zampa is likely to pose major problems to this Indian side that has found it hard to bat on turners. Zampa will seek inspiration from the likes of Ish Sodhi and Mitchell Santner.
