Cheteshwar Pujara, according to former India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, would score the most runs in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand in Southampton. Parthiv projected the best scorer and greatest wicket-taker in the forthcoming marquee event on Star Sports’ Cricket Connected. “In this Test match, I will back Cheteshwar Pujara to win the top scorer award. If India needs to win, you’ll need to keep Pujara at No. 3 if they lose early wickets. I believe India would be in a strong position if he bats for 3-4 hours in this Test match. As a result, I’m betting on Pujara to score the most runs in this Test match.
“I’m going to ignore cricket logic and pick India to win this Test match. Mohammad Shami, I believe, is the key to India’s bowling attack. Yes, Bumrah and Ishant Sharma have bowled and prepared well, but I believe Mohammad Shami is the most important player. The way he has bowled in England and how brilliantly he has performed in all conditions, “Parthiv made a point.
In comparison to Parthiv, former India bowling all-rounder Irfan Pathan had some opposing views. Irfan stated, “The WTC Final is the most important Test match in history. New Zealand, I believe, will have a 55-45 advantage. Kane Williamson, I believe, will also be the highest scorer. Trent Boult and Mohammad Shami will compete for the highest wicket-taker award.”
In the World Test Championship final, India will face New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton beginning June 18.
Because of the playing conditions, a draw or a tie will result in both teams being declared joint champions. The 23rd of June has been designated as a Reserve Day to make up for any time lost during the match’s regular days.
