Cricket fans around the world can finally rejoice as the much-awaited World Test Championship Final between India and Australia is set to begin on June 7, 2023, at the historic Kennington Oval in London.

Hussain highlighted India’s remarkable victory over Australia on Australian soil during the 2020-21 series as a key factor in their chances of winning the WTC Final. He believes that India’s ability to adapt to any conditions was evident in that series, and it bodes well for their prospects. If the weather favors them and the sun shines at The Oval, India can stick to their successful formula of two spinners, two seamers, and utilize Shardul Thakur as the third seamer.
Reflecting on the previous edition of the World Test Championship Final in 2021, Hussain pointed out that India misread the conditions by playing two frontline spinners against New Zealand’s decision to field only one. In a match marred by rain, seam and swing dominated throughout the five days. Hussain emphasized the importance of assessing the conditions accurately and adapting the team composition accordingly.
Hussain also mentioned India’s past successes at The Oval, highlighting their victory against England in their last outing at the venue. He believes The Oval provides a fair playing field for both teams.

The Indian cricket team enters the WTC Final with a well-balanced squad, with several players in excellent form. Batsmen like Shubman Gill and Virat Kohli have been in exceptional touch with the bat, and the team will rely on them to score big runs. The pace attack, led by Mohammed Shami in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah, also appears well-rounded and capable of making an impact in the match.
As anticipation builds up for the clash between these two cricketing powerhouses, fans are eagerly awaiting an enthralling contest to determine the ultimate champion of the World Test Championship.
