ICC WTC Final 2021: Team India’s playing XI announced, these 11 players will win the Test Championship final in Virat Kohli captaincy!
ICC WTC Final 2021: The final match of the ICC World Test Championship will be played between India and New Zealand on 18th June at 3 pm in Southampton.
ICC WTC Final 2021: India’s playing XI for the ICC World Test Championship Final 2021 has been announced. Bets have been placed on all the tried and tested faces in the team. The team will enter the final with six batsmen and five bowlers. Two spinners have been taken in India’s playing XI in the form of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Along with this, the responsibility of fast bowling will be with Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, and Jasprit Bumrah. Earlier there was talk of taking Mohammad Siraj. At the same time, there are the same faces in batting who played in the home series against England. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill will open. Then there is the name Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, and Rishabh Pant.
Team India is going to play a Test match for the first time with the combination of Ishant, Shami, Bumrah, Ashwin, and Jadeja. Before this, these five players have never played a Test together. Surprisingly, these five have been the main faces of Indian bowling for the last few years. India has fed both Ashwin and Jadeja due to the possibility of the Southampton pitch helping spin. India has played two Tests so far on this ground and in both, it was defeated by England. Also, both times the England spinner took wickets while bowling well here. Perhaps because of this history, India has also bet on the spin.
