With India set to face New Zealand in the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) final, Virat Kohli will have a huge task in hand as he will be aiming to win his first ICC trophy as national team captain. The last time Kohli won a ICC title as skipper was when he captained the Indian U-19 team in the 2008 U-19 World Cup. Giving fans a glimpse of his pre-match preparations, ICC posted a video on Instagram, which showed the batsman practicing his drives. The video was captioned as, “@virat.kohli fine-tuning the drives ahead of #WTC21 Final “.

The WTC final is scheduled to begin from June 18 at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton. To gain match practice, Team India is also currently playing an intra-squad match. Unlike India, New Zealand will be coming into the fixture with some proper game time under their belt, after a two-match Test series vs England.

India arrived in England on June 3 and served a mandatory three-day quarantine at the on-site hotel. After the WTC final, India will face England in a five-match Test series.


Kohli was last seen in action during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season, which was postponed midway through the season due to rise in COVID-19 cases. The tournament was also hard-hit with some high-profile cases.

IPL 2021 is set to resume in the September-October window, and will be held at the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
