The World Test Championship 2023 final will be held at the Oval ground in England from June 7 to June 11, 2023. The final will be held between India and Australia, two of the best teams who performed great in the last two years in Test cricket.

Former Indian Cricketer Mohammad Kaif picks his XI for Team India for the final of WTC 2023. He also has picked his choice among Ishan Kishan and KS Bharat.

“In my opinion, I would play Ishan Kishan over KS Bharat because you want someone who can play attacking shots at number six, similar to the role Rishabh Pant used to play.

At number seven, I would play Jadeja, and at number eight, it would be between Ashwin and Shardul, depending on the pitch conditions. If the pitch suits spin, Ashwin can target left-handed batters like Warner, Travis Head, and Khawaja. For the fast bowlers, I would go with Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Umesh Yadav. This would be my preferred playing XI for the final because it’s early June, and we would need three fast bowlers along with Jadeja and either Ashwin or Shardul, based on the weather forecast.” Mohammad Kaif told Star Sports.

Mohammed Kaif’s XI: Shubman Gill, Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Ishan Kishan, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin/Shardul Thakur, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav
