The highly anticipated World Test Championship 2023 final is just around the corner as India and Australia are all set to lock horns with each other in this big clash for the second edition. Both teams are gearing up and preparing hard for the title clash having their best members in the squads for the big Test.

Meanwhile, former India head coach Ravi Shastri went on to remember the star Indian Jasprit Bumrah, who is currently out of action from international cricket due to an injury. Shastri felt that if Bumrah was there in the squad, Team India would have got a more stable lineup in comparison to Australia.

“If Jasprit Bumrah was there in this bowling attack with Shami and Siraj, I would’ve said it’s stable compared to Australia,” said Ravi Shastri to Star Sports.

Although a section of the Indian cricket fans took this statement from Ravi Shastri as an opportunity to troll Jasprit Bumrah for being unavailable for the national side of India in the times when he was required most. Fans came up with a lot of harsh trolling and some hilarious remarks on the micro-blogging site Twitter while responding to Shastri’s analysis ahead of the WTC 2023 final between India and Australia.

Here’s how fans reacted:
