As both India and New Zealand are gearing up for the maiden World Test Championship Final(WTC), kiwi leg spinner Ish Sodhi shared his thoughts over team India’s success over the years and the upcoming WTC final but he also believes that Kane Williamson and Co. have the personnel to get the job done.

New Zealand leg spinner Ish Sodhi has weighed in on the WTC final that is going to be played between Virat Kohli-led Team India and Kane Williamson’s New Zealand in Southampton, where he spoke about the chances of both the teams.

Right-arm spinner Sodhi said the WTC final, slated to begin on June 18, will be a great opportunity for a dominant Kiwis side to finally jump the hurdle of winning the ‘world’ tournament.

Ish Sodhi on WTC final:

New Zealand has always been a top contender in any world tournament but unfortunately, they haven’t won any of them. The World Test Championship is very prestigious and the kiwis are definitely aiming to lift the title. In a recent chat leg-spinner, Ish Sodhi expressed how massive it will be to win the WTC final and that too against an opponent like India.

Ish Sodhi reacts if New Zealand wins the WTC final

“Yeah, totally it will be a massive moment in New Zealand cricket. It will be so satisfying. And this one is so prestigious. Going to the UK and playing at a neutral venue against such a great Indian side.”

Talking about Kohli & Co., which is currently world No.1 in the Test team rankings, Sodhi remarked that they are the peak of their powers and have beaten the Aussies convincingly earlier this year. He also mentioned that Black Caps ranked second in the Test team rankings, have what it takes to get the job done.

“The Indian team is at the peak of their powers as well. It will be a great challenge I think. And if we do go over there and win, it will go down in New Zealand cricket history.”

India is already at the venue(Southampton) of the grand finale, while New Zealand will get there after playing their second and final Test match against England at Edgbaston, the first Test ended in a draw.
