World Test Championship Final 2023: For the final of the World Test Championship to be played against Australia, it is very important to have the right coordination in Team India from batting to bowling department. The Indian team has been playing in the absence of star fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah for a long time. In such a situation, Team India needs to choose the perfect playing XI for the final of the World Test Championship to be held at the Oval in England from June 7. In such a situation, we will tell you about three players who will add value to the team.
Star Indian all-rounder Hardik Pandya played his last Test match in 2018, but in the past, Hardik has brought himself to the fore as a match winner. Hardik can add great all-round value to the team.
Along with making significant contributions with the bat in the team’s middle order, he gave the team an extra pacer option in bowling. In the T20 World Cup played in 2022, he emerged as the fourth pacer for the team. Hardik has played a total of 11 Test matches in his career so far.
Shardul has played a total of 8 Tests for Team India so far, in which he has played three matches in England. Along with bowling in the team, Shardul also adds value to the batting. Former Indian coach Ravi Sastri in ‘ICC Review’ I said that the selectors should think about Shardul for the final of the World Test Championship. On this Dinesh Karthik said that Shardul can replace Akshar Patel in the team.
These days KL Rahul, who is running out of form, can prove to be very successful for the Indian team in the final of the World Test Championship to be played in England. Out of 7 Test centuries in his Test career, he has scored 2 centuries in England. In this, in 2018, he played an innings of 149 runs at the Oval. Rahul can join the team not as an opener but as a middle order batsman.
‘ICC Review’ Former Australian veteran Ricky Ponting also talked about KL Rahul’s England record. He had said that Shubman Gill and KL Rahul can play together in the Indian team.
