The ticket to the WTC final has been secured, but how will Team India face ‘these’ 3 challenges?
The fourth Test between India and Australia ended in a draw on Monday (March 13). Also, the Indian team bagged the series 2-1. Interestingly, India qualified for the final of the World Test Championship 2023 as New Zealand defeated Sri Lanka in the first Test. The final will be played at London’s K Oval from June 7 to 11. In the final match Australia vs India teams will be facing each other.
The spinners of both the teams dominated the four Test series played on Indian soil. However, the final match of the World Test Championship 2023 will be played on England’s fast pitch. It will be beneficial for the bowlers. Also, there are some players for India, whose overseas stats have been good, but they are injured. In such a final match, Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid have faced a big crisis. Let’s know what challenge India will face in the final match of the WTC tournament…
The situation in England
The WTC final will be played in England. Playing on England pitches has always been a challenge for the Indian team. The conditions in England will be beneficial for Australia’s fast bowlers. Because, according to them there will be possibility of pitches. Because, Australia have fast bowlers like Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, who can challenge any strong batting attack on fast pitches.
Thus, the biggest and first challenge for the Indian team in the WTC final will be England’s situation. India will have to solve this. However, India has so much potential that they can beat Australia in England’s condition.
India will miss Bumrah and Pant
Jasprit Bumrah and wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant are injured. Bumrah and Pant have been India’s biggest strengths on overseas pitches in the past few years. However, both of them are out of the team due to injuries. According to reports, Bumrah will not be fit until next August. So the team management does not want to take any kind of risk.
Bumrah last played an international match in September last year. After this he did not play in Asia Cup, T20 World Cup and Border-Gavaskar Trophy series as well. Also, the chances of him playing in the WTC finals are also very slim.
On the other hand, Pant was badly injured in a car accident in late December last year. It may take a long time for him to recover. Hence, the Indian team will miss him in the WTC final.
The pressure on Shami and Siraj will increase
With Jasprit Bumrah not in the team, pressure has increased on Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj. However, these two have put on a special performance whenever they have got an opportunity. It is hoped that both of them will challenge the Australian batsmen in the final of the WTC.
Apart from Shami and Siraj, Umesh Yadav was also part of the squad for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. He performed well in the competition. (world test championship final three challenges for india how will rohit sharma and rahul dravid deal with them)
