The ICC World Test Championship final featuring India and New Zealand will start on 18th June. The Kiwis have a slight advantage over India as they are currently on a tour of England for a 2 match Test series. India will heavily rely on its bowlers to deliver against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final. That said, here are 3 Indian bowlers who could stop New Zealand from winning the World Test Championship final:

⦁ R Ashwin

R Ashwin is undoubtedly India’s most reliable bowler in the longest format of the game. Ashwin has performed brilliantly with the ball for India in the World Test Championship. In just 13 matches in the World Test Championship, the Indian spinner scalped an impressive 67 wickets in total. Ashwin also bagged a total of 5 five-wicket hauls in the tournament so far. If Ashwin manages to perform in a similar fashion in the World Test Championship final, India could stop New Zealand from winning the World Test Championship final.

⦁ Jasprit Bumrah

Jasprit Bumrah is arguably one of India’s most crucial bowlers in the current Indian Test team. The 27-year-old has scalped an impressive 83 wickets in just 19 matches for India in the Test format. The Indian pace bowler also boasts an impressive bowling average of 22.1 in the Test format. Jasprit Bumrah could prove to be the difference between India and New Zealand in the WTC final.

⦁ Ishant Sharma

Ishant Sharma is another bowler who is expected to deliver against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final. Sharma is the most experienced bowler in the Indian Test squad and is expected to lead India’s pace attack against New Zealand. In 11 matches in the ICC World Test Championship, Ishant Sharma has scalped a total of 36 wickets for India. Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli will back Ishant Sharma to scalp wickets for India against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final.
