The Indian cricket team is well prepared and have their bases covered for the big final. According to many experts, the team have all their bases covered and looks the ‘favorites’ to win the title. Team India have beaten teams like West Indies, Bangladesh, South Africa, Australia and England to get into the WTC final. In the process, they have played some outstanding cricket, especially against Australia Down Under.
The BCCI has announced a 20-member squad for the WTC Final and subsequent England tour. They have enough options to choose from to field their best playing XI in the final. It will be interesting to see who makes the cut in the playing XI in the WTC final and who misses out.
Meanwhile, the BCCI has also shared an update on the rescheduled dates of IPL 2021. As reported by Senior Sports Journalist Boria Majumdar, the remaining IPL 2021 season will start either from 19 or 20th September in the UAE. The final will be played on October 10.
The remaining 31 matches of IPL 2021 will be split into 10 double headers, 7 single headers, and 4 playoffs, which will be fit into the 21-day window which the BCCI hopes to create before the ICC T20 World Cup.
