Team India captain Rohit Sharma
The final match of the World Cup-2023 will be played on Sunday at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. The teams of India and Australia will be face to face. After 20 years, both the teams will clash in the World Cup final. In 2003, when there was a title match between India and Australia in South Africa, the Australian team under the captaincy of Ricky Ponting became the champion. After Team India, there cannot be a better opportunity than this to take revenge of that defeat from Australia.
This match is expected to be exciting, because the two best teams of the tournament have reached the finals. Team India has been invincible. She has won 10 consecutive matches. At the same time, Australia has won the last 8 matches. Team India is two-time world champion while Australia has won the World Cup trophy 5 times.
Team India practiced
Team India has reached Ahmedabad for the title match. Players have also started practicing. Captain Rohit Sharma saw the pitch on Friday. He also practiced catching in slip. Fielding coach T Dilip was also present with him. He was making Rohit practice. Its photo has also surfaced.
Rohit’s catching practice in the slips near the stumps suggests that the pitch in the final will help the spinners. The pitch may be slow. Team India has world class spinners like Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja. Both are in amazing form. Kuldeep has taken 15 wickets and Jadeja has taken 16 wickets in the tournament. Australia’s weakness against spinners is well known.
These two teams have clashed in the league stage. Team India had won that match played in Chennai. Jadeja and Kuldeep were the heroes of Team India’s victory. Jadeja took 3 wickets and Kuldeep took 2 wickets. Both of them took 5 wickets for 70 runs in 20 overs.
Not only this, Team India had also fielded experienced spinner R Ashwin in this match. He took 1 wicket for 34 runs in 10 overs. Team India is preparing to take advantage of this weakness of Australia. In such a situation, it would not be surprising if the final pitch helps the spinners.
