WTC Final: India vs New Zealand: Time table, Date, India time, Venue, Squads, TV channel, live streaming info
The ICC had announced the prize money too for the winners are runners-up in the WTC Final, adding a bonus point to the contest that is already gaining so much edge. India under Virat Kohli have not played a Test match since their home series against England and even the IPL 2021 was suspended due to Covid 19 pandemic.
WTC FINAL: IND VS NZ: PITCH AND WEATHER REPORT AT SOUTHAMPTON
On the other hand, New Zealand have already played and won a two-match Test series against England in a show of strength and character away from home. It was their first series win in England since 1999.
The result might have given Kane Williamson’s side oodles of confidence, and it might not be entirely wrong to consider them as favourites. But at the other end of the spectrum, we have Virat Kohli’s India. They have showed a penchant to overcome hardest of obstacles and the series against Australia stands as a piece of evidence.
The Ageas Bowl curator Simon Lee had said the pitch might offer some bounce and carry and that might excite pacers from both the sides and they have a good pack too. India have Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Siraj and Mohammed Shami while New Zealand have more experienced bunch in Trent Boult, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Matt Henry and Kyle Jamieson.
