WTC Final 2023: Important decision taken regarding WTC final, India-Australia will compete with this ball

Australia vs India, WTC Final 2023: The final match of the second edition of the World Test Championship (WTC) will be played between Australia and India from June 7 at The Oval ground in England. For the first time, the Indian team will take to the ground to play a match in Test format without Duke ball in England. In this match between Australia and India, the Kookaburra ball of Australian variant will be used in place of Duke.

In the year 2021, when the final match of the first edition of WTC was played, the team of India and New Zealand played with the Duke ball. Over the past several complaints have been lodged by county teams about the deterioration in the quality of the Dukes ball. Keeping these reasons in mind, both the teams have agreed to play with Kookaburra ball in place of Dukes.

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting has also mentioned this in one of his statements. Ponting said that the ICC has given its consent to use the Kookaburra ball in place of the Dukes for the WTC final.

It will be an Indian top order vs Australian pace attack

Ricky Ponting said about this historic match in the ICC event that according to him it will be between the Indian top order and the Australian fast bowling attack. Often we talk about the competition between Indian spinners and Australian batsmen. But all these things do not matter much considering the conditions at The Oval.

Ponting further said about the wicket of Oval that when I played there, the pitch plays very well in the initial time of batting. After this, as the game progresses, spin bowlers see some help on this.
