India have been in a league of their own at this year's World Cup, but the only team they ran into serious trouble against now stand between them and glory in Sunday's final. As five-time ODI world champions, Australia just have a knack for winning this trophy, and they enter the 2023 Cricket World Cup final battle-hardened. Read on and we'll show you how to watch India vs Australia live streams from anywhere with a VPN — and potentially for FREE.
The Aussies won the toss and opted to bowl first, which was a bold choice seeing as the mercury read 32 degrees Celsius at the start of play. But they've subdued the gargantuan Narendra Modi Stadium, and now need to chase down a modest target of 241 in order to lift the cup.
India team: Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj
Australia team: Travis Head, David Warner, Mitch Marsh, Steve Smith, Marnus Labuschagne, Glenn Maxwell, Josh Inglis (wk), Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins (c), Adam Zampa, Josh Hazlewood
Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were removed for ducks when India and Australia met in their opening clash, which feels like a distant memory following game after game of utterly devastating batsmanship. Was it a one-off, opening night nerves, or do Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc have an edge on the Indian top order?
Though he doesn't get the same adulation as Virat Kohli, KL Rahul was instrumental in digging India out of that particular hole. And while Mohammed Shami has been so destructive with the ball that he's even managed to eclipse Jasprit Bumrah, it was the spin of Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav that tore through the Aussie order.
Both teams have played – and won – at Narendra Modi Stadium before, but Australia's victory wasn't soundtracked by 132,000 India fans. The stage is set for the hosts' coronation, though sporting law dictates that the only unbeaten team in the competition should brace themselves for a late twist.

How to watch India vs Australia cricket live streams from anywhere
A VPN, or virtual private network, makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.
VPNs are totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite is ExpressVPN. It's fast, works on loads of devices, and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.
Using a VPN is incredibly simple.
1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN is our favorite.
2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, such as 9Now, you'd select 'Australia' from the list.
3. Sit back and enjoy the action and watch the India vs Australia live stream.
