After a year and a half of near-perfect cricket, Australia is facing its third big challenge: the World Test Championship final, an event they've never won before. Both teams are seeking redemption in this final. For India, this is a chance to make up for their loss to New Zealand in the 2021 WTC Final. For Australia too, it's an opportunity to win the one ICC event they have never won before.

However, the team found strength under the leadership of Pat Cummins, who led them to several victories.

Pitch Report and Weather Conditions

This match marks the first time in their 76-year Test history that Australia and India will face off at a neutral venue, The Oval in London. The pitch at The Oval is known to be one of England’s most spin-friendly decks, which might benefit the Indian spin bowlers, Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin. However, the pitch is expected to be more similar to an Australian wicket, giving a slight advantage to Australia. The pitch could offer good batting conditions initially and assistance to spinners as the game progresses.

Players to Watch

For Australia, vice-captain Steve Smith, with an average of 97.75 in three matches at The Oval, is definitely a player to watch. Meanwhile, India has a strong lineup with modern greats like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. Cheteshwar Pujara has been a menace for Australian bowlers for over a decade. It's also worth noting that India will be without Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant, and Shreyas Iyer due to injuries.

Probable Playing 11

Australia's probable lineup for the WTC 2023 final match includes David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Cameron Green, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, and Scott Boland. Josh Hazlewood's replacement is likely to be Scott Boland.
