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.

The countdown has begun for the highly-anticipated battle between the two best Test teams in the world – India and New Zealand. Both teams will take on each other in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship final in Southampton on June 18. The high-octane clash will be a showdown among some superstars of world cricket.

Parthiv Patel counts on Pujara

The likes of Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Ross Taylor, and the newbie Devon Conway will take the center stage. But as per the former India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, it is the ‘cool and calm’ Cheteshwar Pujara who will hold the key for Team India if they want to win the battle against New Zealand in the longer format.

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.” said Parthiv.

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 Ishan 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.

India will play New Zealand from June 18 at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton to decide the first champion side of the longest format.

The playing conditions confirm that a draw or a tie will see both teams crowned as joint winners as well as the allocation of a Reserve Day to make up for any lost time during the regular days of the Final, scheduled to be played from June 18 to 22. June 23 has been set aside as the Reserve Day. The match will be played using Grade 1 Dukes cricket balls.
