WTC Final: Mohammed Shami Holds Key For India, Say Parthiv Patel, Irfan Pathan

Former Team India wicket-keeper Parthiv Patel believes Cheteshwar Pujara will be the highest run-scorer in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand in Southampton. Speaking on Star Sports show Cricket Connected, Parthiv predicted the top scorer and highest wicket-taker in the upcoming marquee event. “I will back Cheteshwar Pujara to get the highest scorer title in this Test match. If India has to win, you have to keep Pujara for your No.3 — if India loses early wickets. If he goes on to bat for 3-4 hours in this Test match, I think India will be in a very good position. So, I am backing Pujara to be the highest run-scorer in this Test match.

“I will put cricketing logic aside and I will back India to win this Test match. I think Mohammad Shami holds the key to the Indian bowling attack. Yes, Bumrah and Ishant Sharma have been bowling and preparing well, but I think Mohammad Shami is key. The way he has been bowling in England and he has done really well in all conditions,” Parthiv pointed.

But former India bowling all-rounder Irfan Pathan had some contrasting views in comparison to Parthiv. Irfan said: “WTC Final, it’s the biggest Test match ever. I think New Zealand will have a 55-45 advantage. I also think Kane Williamson will be the highest scorer. And, in terms of highest wicket-taker, it will be between Trent Boult and Mohammad Shami.”

India will play New Zealand from June 18 at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton in the World Test Championship final.

The playing conditions confirm that a draw or a tie will see both teams crowned as joint winners. June 23rd has been allocated as a Reserve Day to make up for any lost time during the regular days of the match.
