The much-awaited ICC World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) final is set to take place from 7th June at The Oval. All eyes would be on Virat Kohli, the right-handed batter, who has rediscovered his mojo. Virat Kohli had smashed a stellar ton against Australia in the 4th Test match in BGT 2023 and was in sublime touch.
Australia would be aware of the fact that they can’t get complacent as India have got a lethal bowling attack and can create havoc in the English conditions. The role of Usman Khawaja would be pivotal in the match as he will have to play a significant knock.
