The Indian Cricket Team would feel confident after winning back the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in 2023. This year, The Men in Blue have retained the BGT a record-breaking four times. Ravi Shastri predicts India will win the World Test Championship (WTC 2021-23) by a bigger margin after the nation lost the WTC 2019-21 final against New Zealand. Ravi Shastri only had good things to say about the Men in Blue.
Australia must put on its “A” game since India has depth in both the batting and bowling departments. All eyes will be on skipper Steven Smith during the third Test Match, as the right-handed batter has faced criticism for not performing to his standards.
Ravi Shastri on the WTC Final
Ravi Shastri was questioned about BGT 2023 and WTC 2021-23 during a chat with the ICC.
There will be an impact, but because Australia will get its fast bowlers back after missing several of them to injury, the scenario will be different. Notwithstanding the challenges, India will remain confident and believe they can defeat Australia. said Ravi Shastri.
Head coach Andrew McDonald has to pull a rabbit out of his hat given the batsmen’s current lack of experience playing against spinners. After observing how the Aussies lost 9 wickets in one session during the second innings of the second Test Match, the team may need to take things session by session.
It’s unlikely that Matt Renshaw will get another chance now that Cameron Green has been cleared for selection and is fit. The Australian team’s problem in the series thus far has been that they haven’t rotated the strike, making it simpler for the bowlers to aggravate them. The batters are required to strike the ball with their feet rather than performing sweep and reverse sweep strokes.
