Top 5 Players Set to Make a Big Impact in the WTC Final | The Powerhouse Players

- Advertisement -

The World Test Championship is all set to kickstart from June 7, 2023. India and Australia are prepared for their match at the Oval in England. Australia has made it to the final for the first time. In the previous edition, New Zealand defeated India to win the WTC. India will have a greater understanding of the game conditions. The Dukes ball will be used at The Oval, which hasn’t hosted a Test match in a while; the outcome will thus be determined by a neutral ball at a neutral location. Despite these aspects, the match’s outcome could only be significantly influenced by a small number of players. Let’s look at players who can make an impact in ICC WTC Final 2023.

India’s bowling revolves around Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami in the absence of Jasprit Bumrah. Mohammed Siraj is a much better bowler today. He’s been bowling like a pro for the last few years. He’s making the hitters dance to his bowling melody, regardless of the format. Siraj has been regarded highly as a red-ball bowler since his days on the Indian domestic circuit. Former India bowling coach Bharat Arun has also praised him in the past. Siraj has bowled well in English conditions since his Test debut against Australia. He has taken 18 wickets in 5 matches in England thus far, demonstrating his exceptional ability. Siraj takes on the ball with a swift run-up and nips it back towards the right-handers. Siraj has been Rohit’s go-to guy if he believes pressure should be kept up. He can bowl on the same line and length for an extended period. The major concern for Siraj is his ‘not so good’ previous Test at The Oval, and now he has the opportunity not only to improve his stats but also to win the coveted Test match for the Indian side.

Cameron Green, Australia’s young all-rounder, might be the deciding factor in the one-off Test against India. Green is full of confidence following his outstanding maiden season in the IPL. Even in his most recent appearances against India, he appeared considerably improved. Like every other Australian cricketer, he has a tremendous match temperament. The 24-year-old might be the middle-of-the-order surprise. Although David Warner, Marnus Labuschagne, and Steven Smith are the topics of most discussions, Green may also contribute to the Kangaroos triumph in the test match. Green’s height allows him to stay on top of the ball, and if he gets into a rhythm, he can be ruthless. The Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which was completed earlier this year, saw him get his highest test score to 114 against India. Despite taking part in 20 Tests, he has only slightly underperformed expectations. This time, he can display his ability on the largest platform. However, the one thing that can work against him is the fact that it will be his first test in England. He will be the player to watch out for if he adjusts to the conditions.

Pat Cummins

Pat Cummins is the Australian squad’s most crucial player. Team Australia will be led by the rising seamer. In the ICC Men’s Test Bowling Rankings, he is currently placed third. Like Mitchell Starc, he can be dangerous with his bowling abilities. He has an outstanding record in English. He took 29 wickets in five Tests the previous time he visited England. Even against India, he has 46 wickets from 12 Tests. However, he had a terrible score in the recently finished Border-Gavaskar Trophy and had to return home after two Tests to take care of his unwell mother. This time, he’ll be eager to finish the unfinished business. Cummins, in addition to being their top bowler, is a natural leader. Ausill has undergone through a smooth transition under his leadership and is now thriving. The WTC Final will very likely be Cummins most difficult task as Test Captain.

Steven Smith

Steven Smith is widely regarded as one of the best modern-day Test batsmen. Smudge, as he’s affectionately known, has averaged 59.55 in 16 Tests for England thus far. His devotion and desire to play Test cricket have skyrocketed. Despite Smith’s struggles in the most recent series against the Rohit Sharma-led squad, he averages above 65 even against WTC final opponents India. So he’ll be more hungry and eager to get more runs this time. And the Oval is his favorite place to score them. Smith has two centuries at the venue and an average of 97.75 in three Tests. He, along with Marnus Labuschange, controls Australia’s batting order. If Smith gets going, things will get more difficult for India. India will attempt to get him out as soon as they can so they have a chance. 

Ravichandran Ashwin

The talented spinner Ravichandran Ashwin is a master of his skills in Test cricket. With his extensive collection of variations, subtle pace changes, and great control, Ashwin has consistently troubled hitters from all around the world. He is the team’s most valuable player because of his versatility in taking wickets on every surface and giving them the crucial breakthroughs, they need. In the WTC Final, Ashwin’s expertise and capacity to take advantage of any hints of aid from the pitch will be crucial.
