Team India will be aiming to win the ICC World Test Champions Final to end its almost 10-year wait for the global trophy. The side had last won the Champions Trophy in 2013 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s captaincy.
Virat Kohli failed to lead India to success in the big events. Rohit suffered a failure in the ICC T20 World Cup 2022, and the upcoming final is his second test.
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri, who was at the helm during the WTC loss two years ago, said the current side could end the ICC title drought. According to him, no clear favourites exist in the second final of the prestigious Test World Cup.
“India can win the ICC World Test championship. We played good cricket last time but lost in the final against Australia,” he said.
“Everyone thinks Australia are the favourite because the game is in England, but one bad day can ruin your chances. Australia need to be very careful,” he said.
