World number 1 in Tests, Team India, will lock horns with Kane Williamson’s New Zealand in the final of the inaugural edition of World Test Championship, starting June 18. Both the captains will have their eyes on the trophy which will declare the winner as the champion of the longest format of the game.
BCCI is expected to announce the squad for the much-awaited Test championship final in next 48 hours. Meanwhile, we will be listing what could be the probable 15-member squad for the Virat Kohli-led side against the mighty New Zealand at Southampton on third week of June.
Let’s have a look at the probable squad
1. Rohit Sharma
It’s a no brainer to have Rohit Sharma as the opener, the highest run scorer in England Test series. The opening slot has done wonders for the Hitman in the red-ball cricket and he will be eager to perform in the final as well. Although Rohit has played in only one occasion in the longest format in England, but his form will be vital in WTC final for the Indian team.
