Probable India’s playing XI in the World Test Championship (WTC) final


    10. Jasprit Bumrah

    Jasprit Bumrah Test

    India’s fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is the best seamer in the world currently. He is known for his ability to bowl pin-point yorkers with such ease. His unconventional bowling action has often helped him reap rewards. However, he has minimal experience In playing red-ball cricket.

    The right-arm fast bowler played 19 Tests where he has already bagged as many as 83 wickets at an outstanding average of 22.11. Moreover, he has accounted for five 5 wicket hauls as well. Nonetheless, he failed to deliver the goods in the Test series against England at home.


    The death overs specialist has featured in 2 Tests against Joe Root-led team where he took only 4 wickets to his name. However, he will be gunning for success in the ICC World Test Championship final in Southampton next month.

    11. Mohammed Shami

    Mohammed Shami Test

    Mohammed Shami has always been consistent in terms of bowling nail-biting yorkers to the batsmen. The veteran pacer has experience of playing Test cricket in 50 games where he picked up 180 wickets to his name in the longest format of the game at a bowling average of 27.59.

    The 30-year-old experienced pacer has been in tremendous form with the bat over the last few years. He accounted for 85 dismissals in the traditional format in the last three years. This goes to show why he has been an important bowler for the Indian cricket team.

    However, he couldn’t feature in a single Test for the Indian cricket team this year. He has been named in the squad for the WTC final and will be looking forward to getting rid of New Zealand’s batting line-up in the high-voltage clash on June 18.
