In fact, India reaching the WTC final for the second time in a row was not so unexpected. A lot of equations have come to India. In addition to a clean sweep of the England Test series on the soil of Pakistan at the end of last year, before coming to India, Australia defeated South Africa on their own soil.
After winning the only Test against Bangladesh, India are in a position to qualify for the WTC final only if they win against Australia in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Rohit Sena, who defeated Australia in the first two Tests, advanced towards the WTC final. But Australia won in the third test which was held at the indoor venue. But while South Africa has almost left the race, only Sri Lanka has made it to the final race. In order to reach the final of the WTC, Sri Lanka must defeat New Zealand by a margin of 2-0. But with New Zealand’s win in the first test, there was no obstacle for India.
The WTC between India and Australia will be held at the Oval in London on June 7. India, who lost at the hands of New Zealand in the final of the World Test Championship held for the first time in 2021, now have a chance to win the ICC trophy once again. It is noteworthy that this is the first time that India and Australia are going to meet in the ICC final after the 2003 ODI World Cup final.
In this Test Championship cycle, India has played ten matches abroad so far.. Rohit has not captained even one of them. India, who played six Tests under the leadership of Kohli and three under the captaincy of Rahul, played one match under the captaincy of Bumrah. Now under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, Team India will face directly in the WTC final. This time the fans strongly want India to win the trophy no matter what.
