Hussain he figures India can win in any condition yet it will help them on the off chance that the sun sparkles at The Oval during the WTC last against Australia.
Neither India nor Australia can claim to have an advantage over the conditions heading into the World Test Championship final at The Oval.
Although India’s pace battery has frequently dispelled doubts over the years, the quality of Australia’s seam attack in conditions largely suited to pace-bowling may slightly tip the balance in Australia’s favor.
Nasser Hussain, a former England captain, is one man who can claim to be an expert at playing at
The Oval. He also believes that India can win under any circumstances, but that the sun shining between June 7 and 11 will definitely help them.
“I think India can win in any situation, as they demonstrated in Australia. At The Oval, India has played some good cricket.
The last time they played there, they beat England in a great game. According to Hussain on The ICC Review, “I think it’s a pretty fair venue.”
If the weather is good and the sun shines at The Oval, they can use their strategy of two seamers, two spinners, and (Shardul) Thakur as your third seamer, which helps with their side’s balance.
Hussain, who is a member of the global broadcast team for the WTC final, said without hesitation that India’s team lost to New Zealand in the WTC final in Southampton a few years ago.
India misinterpreted the conditions at the most recent World Test Championship, in my opinion. The lights were on each of the five days, it was dark, it was hopeless, it was cold.
There was no front-line spinner utilized by New Zealand. India played two, and I believe swing and seam dominated,” he continued.
India chose to field both Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja in the final WTC final in 2021 despite the overcast conditions and the available pitch.
Jadeja had very little to bowl, so the decision backfired. On the other hand, throughout the Test, New Zealand’s all-seam attack hounded the Indian batsmen.
However, Hussain believes that India should use both spin-bowling all-rounders together for a variety of reasons.
For batting depth, I would choose Jadeja and Ashwin. You can bat all the way down after that. You can then utilize your best seamers.
Last time they played England there, Jadeja bowled beautifully. He extended a hand. Because he bowls, he also hits the dirty side of the ball, so he got it reverse swinging for them.
“Yet, what they mustn’t do in the event that it’s blustery and wet and moist and the lights are on and it’s green, then, at that point, they need to change the equilibrium of their side, which they didn’t accomplish for Anything Test Title last time.
I would seriously consider those conditions the day before and that first morning, and I would not hesitate to leave out one of your legends if the circumstances call for it.
However, great bowlers typically excel in all conditions.
