The much-awaited ICC World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final is slated to take place from 7th June at The Oval. There has been a lot of debate about whether both Ravichandran Ashwin & Ravindra Jadeja should play in the final. Ravichandran Ashwin recently showcased his batting prowess and leaving him out would be risky.
All eyes would be on Shubman Gill, the right-handed batter, who is in the form of his life. The peculiarity of Shubman Gill is that he is quite fearless and has got a wide range of shots which makes him a dangerous asset.

The likes of Mitchell Starc & Pat Cummins would be keen to assert their dominance. We should not forget that the duo had opted out of the IPL 2023 for WTC 2021-23 Final and according to multiple reports, it is assumed that Scott Boland would play in place of Josh Hazlewood.
The Aussies would sense that they can take revenge for BGT 2023, we all witnessed how India dictated the terms except for the 3rd Test match of BGT 2023. It won’t be wrong to say that the conditions would be tailor-made for Aussie pacers which gives them a slight edge over India.
I am going in with 2 spinners: Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch was having an interaction with Star Sports. Aaron Finch revealed the reason behind naming Ravichandran Ashwin & Ravindra Jadeja into the playing 11 and stated that the duo would be very vital to India’s success.
“I am going in with 2 spinners Ravichandran Ashwin & Ravindra Jadeja. The Oval pitch can spin later in the game and I think that would be really important,” said Aaron Finch.
“A really well-balanced Indian team that has got a lot of experience. It has got wicket-takers with the new ball. There is the option of Shardul Thakur, as the extra quick along with the two spinners. If we combine that all, I think it becomes a very well-rounded and very good team,” he added.
