Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina believes that winning the World Test Championship (WTC) final will be a morale booster for the Men in Blue ahead of the ODI World Cup 2023 at home later this year. India will face Australia in the WTC final, which is scheduled to be played at the Oval in London on June 7.

The Men in Blue last won an ICC tournament in the 2013 Champions Trophy. India lost in the finals of the 2014 T20 World Cup and the 2017 Champions Trophy. The team reached the semi-finals of the 2015 ODI World Cup, 2016 T20 World Cup, 2019 ODI World Cup, and 2022 T20 World Cup. The team made a group-stage exit in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
