ICC(WTC) final match will be played between India and New Zealand (India vs New Zealand) from 18 to 22 June at The Ages Bowl Stadium in Southampton. Both the teams are fully prepared for the clash in this match. Before this final match, different types of predictions have been made from the cricket corridors. In this connection, now former Kiwi cricketer Scott Styris has also expressed his reaction.
Former Kiwi player told this team the contender for victory
For the time being, both the teams will try to capture this ICC trophy. This time both the sides are in a very strong position. This match is going to prove to be a tough competition. In such a situation, the former Kiwi cricketer has also made a new prediction. Recently, while talking on Star Sports’ show ‘Cricket Connected’, Scott Styris has described his team as a contender for victory. Regarding this he said,
New Zealand can win the World Test Championship (WTC) match by 6 wickets on the basis of Devon Conway and Bolt, who recently made their Test debut against England. I think our team will win this by 6 wickets. Devon Conway will score the most runs with the bat, and Bolt will be able to take the most wickets.
Irfan Pathan and Ajit Agarkar had made such predictions before Styris
However, before Styris, former Team India all-rounder player Irfan Pathan had also said a big thing about this match. He had described the Kiwi team as the only contender for victory. Talking about this, Irfan Pathan said that,
“WTC Final is the biggest Test match ever. I think New Zealand will be in a position of advantage from 55-45. With that I think Kane Williamson will score the most runs while either Trent Boult or Shami will be able to take the most wickets.
Apart from this, former Indian cricketer Ajit Agarkar also predicted. He said in his statement that,
“It is very difficult to say about this right now that which team will capture the match. But, New Zealand will start as a contender in this match. When it comes to scoring the most runs, I will take Virat Kohli’s name in it.
Parthiv Patel said this in favor of India
Parthiv Patel, who was present in this show, has supported Team India instead of New Zealand in the matter of victory. He said in his statement that,
“Cricket arguments aside, I will support India to win this Test match. I think Mohammed Shami will be an important contributor to the Indian bowling attack. He has really done well under the conditions.
If India wants to register a win in this final, then it will have to retain Pujara at number three. If he stays at the crease for 3-4 hours in this match, then India will be in a very good position. I will name Pujara as the highest run-scorer in this Test match.”
