Team India is on its way to play the first-ever ICC world Test championship final. Virat Kohli and his men will clash again a strong New Zealand side in the final. The match will be played most probably at Southampton between June 18-22.
Team India topped the world Test championship table after they defeated England in the final Test match at Ahmedabad and punched their ticket for the historic final. Now with the final taking place in England, team India will play the playing XI which is best suited for the conditions. In this feature, we look ahead at the possible playing XI of team India for the ICC world Test championship final.
Team India’s Predicted XI For The World Test Championship Final
1. Rohit Sharma
The elegant Indian opener has the best batting average for any Indian batsman in the world Test championship. Come to the final against New Zealand, team India will be hoping that Rohit Sharma is at his best. This will certainly not be easy as he will be playing a quality New Zealand attack consisting of Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner and the rest.
However, in the last 2 years, Rohit has shown that he is ready to do the hard grind in Test cricket and score runs when the ball becomes old. The star Indian opener will be a key wicket for NZ when they face India in the final.
