WTC Final: Before the big match against Australia, these 5 questions are in front of Team India

After IPL 2023, the Indian team has to fly directly to England where the final of the World Test Championship is to be played between India and Australia. Cricket fans from all over the world are waiting for this great match to be held on 7th June. For this final match, both the teams have also announced their squads, so till now the fans have also guessed the playing XI of both the teams. However, before this big match, there are five such questions in front of Team India, whose answers they will have to find as soon as possible. So let us tell you what are the things about which head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma need to be clear.

5- Fast bowlers or spinners, on whom to trust?

In England, usually in conditions favorable to swing and seam, one of the problems facing the Indian team is how many spinners they can take on the field because in the recent Border Gavaskar series played in India, the Indian team has three spinners Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and She played with Akshar Patel and you all saw the result. But here is the final match and the conditions are in England, in such a situation, Rohit and company have to take a decision whether to go with only Ravindra Jadeja or go with Jadeja Ashwin and field three pacers.

4. Only one left arm fast bowler, will there be a place in the playing XI?

There is only one left-arm fast bowler in the Indian team for the final of the World Test Championship. In such a situation, the question now arises whether Jaydev Unadkat can be included in the playing eleven in place of one of Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj and Umesh Yadav to bring some variety in the playing eleven. If Jaydev is included in the playing XI, then he is a bowler who has been played very little by the Australian batsmen and India can take advantage of this thing.

3. Will Ajinkya Rahane play in the playing XI or not?

For the first time after January 2022, Ajinkya Rahane has returned to the Indian team. However, considering the batting line-up, Rahane's selection in the playing XI is not certain. Seeing the way Rahane has performed in IPL and domestic cricket, it would not be wrong to say that he can play a decisive role for India in this final match. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma would definitely like to fit him in the middle order in some way or the other.

2. How correct is it to drop Suryakumar Yadav from the Test team?

Suryakumar Yadav made his Test debut against Australia in February but in this debut match he was dismissed after scoring only 8 runs and after that he was dropped from the playing XI. Surya's poor form continued for him in the ODI series against Australia as well and he had to bear the brunt of his exit from the World Test Championship final but could a player with X factor like him be included in the squad for this big match, This is a question everyone is trying to find the answer to. Had Surya been in the squad, Rohit Sharma could have been an attacking option and as he has some experience in English conditions in white ball cricket, he could prove to be effective as well.

1. India can benefit from the sacrifice of KS Bharat 

Keeping in mind that the ball will swing and seam in England, the Indian team can make a big bet that keeping KS Bharat out in this match, both Ajinkya Rahane and Shubman Gill should be included in the playing XI and wicketkeeping will be done. The responsibility should be handed over to KL Rahul.
