Top Run-Scorers Predicted for the IND vs. AUS WTC 2023 Final

Unveiling the Star Batsmen Expected to Dominate the Scoreboard in the Highly Anticipated IND vs. AUS WTC 2023 Final

By Fast Live LinePublished 11 months ago 4 min read

Today marks the commencement of the highly anticipated ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final, where India and Australia will face each other at the prestigious Kennington Oval. While India is aiming for their second triumph in claiming the mace, this will be Australia's maiden appearance in the championship's ultimate showdown.

After two years of intense Test cricket, Pat Cummins and his team emerged as the leaders of the table, securing a spot in the final of the second edition of the WTC. They achieved an impressive win percentage of 66.67%, with 11 victories, three defeats, and five draws in their journey.

On the contrary, India concluded with a winning percentage of 58.8%, emerging victorious in 10 matches, suffering five defeats, and drawing three games. The Indian cricket team encountered some challenges en route to the final showdown but displayed composure to secure their second consecutive spot in the championship match.

Earlier this year, both teams faced off in a four-match Test series, and India emerged as the victors with a 2-1 scoreline over the formidable Australian team.

Batsmen face unique difficulties when playing in the United Kingdom, with the overcast skies and seaming pitches presenting significant challenges. However, if they manage to spend a substantial amount of time on the field, the rewards can be substantial.

With that being said, let's examine three batsmen who are likely to achieve the highest run totals in the final of the 2023 World Test Championship (WTC) between India and Australia.

1. Shubman Gill - India

In 2023, the youthful opening batsman displayed outstanding performance in various formats. He holds the distinction of being India's leading run-scorer across all formats this year.

During the two Test matches that Shubman Gill has participated in thus far, he has accumulated a total of 154 runs, which includes a remarkable century.

Gill had an outstanding performance in the IPL 2023 season, emerging as the leading run-scorer of the tournament. The batter from Gujarat Titans (GT) accumulated a total of 890 runs in 17 matches with an impressive average of 59.33. His remarkable innings included three centuries and four fifties.

Although the upcoming WTC final is a different format, Gill is likely to approach it with confidence. Anticipate a significant contribution from the young talent from Punjab as he faces the formidable Australian team.

2. Marnus Labuschagne - Australia

Over the past few years, Marnus Labuschagne has established himself as one of Australia's top batsmen in Test cricket. At present, he holds the prestigious position of being the highest-ranked Test batter globally.

In order to get ready for the upcoming WTC final and the subsequent Ashes 2023, Labuschagne dedicated the past couple of months to training in the United Kingdom. Representing Glamorgan, the talented cricketer from New South Wales displayed exceptional performance by scoring two centuries and achieving the milestone of fifty runs in an impressive eight innings.

He will exude great confidence and possess a good understanding of the English conditions, giving him an extra edge when Australia faces India.

Although Labuschagne has maintained a respectable performance against India, with an average nearing 50, he has only scored a single century. He aspires to enhance his track record by delivering a significant innings at the Kennington Oval.

3. Virat Kohli - India

Following a period of batting struggle lasting nearly three years, Virat Kohli is gradually finding his form again. He performed impressively in the latter half of 2022 and commenced this year on a highly positive note.

Additionally, the former captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) had an outstanding season in the IPL, where he amassed 639 runs in 14 matches, achieving two consecutive centuries.

Kohli's exceptional performance in the IPL indicates that he is in peak form, which could pose a significant challenge for the Australian bowlers in the upcoming WTC final.

Despite being born in Delhi, the cricketer has not had pleasant experiences while playing at this particular venue. In three matches, he has only been able to score a total of 169 runs, with an average of 28.16.

Nevertheless, Kohli is determined to move past those experiences and deliver a crucial performance, as India is eager to bring an end to their ten-year-long quest for an ICC trophy.
