WTC Final: Kohli in strong form, chance to break Sunny’s record

New Delhi. Team India’s batting will depend a lot on the trio of Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli in the final of the World Test Championship starting from June 7 between India and Australia. All three batsmen are performing brilliantly with the bat at the moment WTC final is to be played at Kennington Oval ground. Fans hope that Rohit Sharma’s team will be able to overcome the disappointment of the defeat to New Zealand in the 2021 WTC final by becoming champions this time. However, for this, the bowlers who are performing consistently well by making big scores will have to be given a chance to show their fire.

Where Virat and Shubman Gill have scored runs in IPL-2023, Pujara (Cheteshwar Pujara) has also scored centuries while playing for Sussex in the English county. Due to playing in England for a long time, he has got used to the wickets here and this thing can go in favor of India.

Virat and Sunny have 8-8 centuries against Australia
Talking about Virat Kohli, he will have a chance to break Sunil Gavaskar’s record in the WTC final. Sachin Tendulkar has scored the most centuries for India in Test cricket against Australia, while the great Sunil Gavaskar and King Kohli are second in this case with 8-8 centuries. Apart from these two, Herbert Sutcliffe of England has also scored 8 centuries against Australia. If Virat manages to score a century at the Oval, he will break Sunny’s record of 8 centuries. Sachin has scored 11 centuries in 39 matches against Australia while Gavaskar has scored 20 and Virat has scored 8-8 centuries in 24 Tests. There can be no better chance for Virat to break Gavaskar’s record than the WTC final and the fans are expecting the same from him.

Jack Hobbs has the most centuries against Australia
The record of scoring the most centuries against Australia is in the name of England batsman Jack Hobbs. He has scored 12 centuries against this country in 41 Tests. Second with 11 centuries, while West Indies’ Richie Richardson and Brian Lara and England’s Wally Hammond and David Gower are joint third. If Virat is successful in scoring a century in the final, then he will come on par with these four.
