The final of the World Test Championship 2023 is just 3 days away. The India vs Australia match will be played at England’s K Oval between June 7 and 11. Even before this match, MSK Prasad, now the former chief selector of the Indian team, has made a big comment about Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin. He said that India’s plan to field two spinners, Jadeja and Ashwin, in the 2021 WTC final had failed. However, the possibility of a WTC final in 2023 with these two spinners cannot be ruled out.
Prasad’s statement on two spinners or four fast bowlers
The WTC Final will be played between India vs Australia from June 7. Should Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin be played in the Indian playing XI in this match or not? This is the big puzzle, for which all the cricket experts are giving their opinion. In this way, former chief selector of India MSK Prasad (MSK Prasad) interacted with the media.
He said, “Jadeja has been performing well for some time now, so he can play as a specialist batsman. Given the potential of the two (Jadeja-Ashwin), it is difficult to ignore them and it will be difficult to decide. Ashwin, who has taken more than 400 wickets, can bowl on any pitch. It will be a very difficult decision then.”
Additionally, Prasad said about the WTC final, “We went with the plan of two spinners and three fast bowlers, but then the rain came and we should have changed the plan, but we stuck with the same playing eleven. However, that thing is old. It will all depend on the condition of the oval. The pitch and setting is the real story of this movie. We don’t know what those five days will be like, so we shouldn’t prejudge ourselves. You should understand the situation and do what you feel in your heart.”
The final match of the World Test Championship 2021 between India and New Zealand was played in Southampton, England. Ashwin-Jadeja took only 5 wickets together in this match, while all other wickets were taken by fast bowlers. Also, New Zealand did not field any spinners. All 20 wickets were taken by these fast bowlers. (former selector msk prasad gave his opinion whether jadeja ashwin should play in the wtc final or not)
