After the Indian Premier League 2023 ends, the Indian team is preparing for the final match of the World Test Championship. In this final match of the WTC, India is facing a challenge from the mighty Australian team. It will certainly not be easy for India to play the WTC final after the IPL. Also, this year the WTC final will be played at Duke Ball, which the Indian team is not used to. However, according to Akshar Patel, the Indian team is ready for the match.
Axar Patel was part of Delhi Capitals in IPL 2023. According to him, the Indian players started practicing with the Duke ball for the WTC Final when the IPL started. He also said that after playing white ball cricket for two months, it is not easy to play with red ball.
Akshar Patel said, “During the IPL there was a discussion that we should bowl with the red ball. We also had the red ball and we used it. You know when, how, and how much time you have left to play. Switching from white ball to red ball is definitely difficult. But we have a lot of time. The trick is that the glow of the red ball lasts for a long time. During the IPL, having practiced on this ball, we got used to it.”
“As I said we have come from the white ball to the red ball. It’s exactly like coming to Duke on SG ball. You have to implement your plans. No matter what the ball is, if you throw the ball in the right place in the right way, it will definitely have an effect. This is exactly what we are trying to do. The situation is going to be different from India as the match is in England. In this case, we are planning which line-length will work here. We are working on this in the practice session as well. We are ready to play the match.” (Information received from Axar Patel that Indian players practiced for WTC finals during IPL 2023)
