India and New Zealand are set to lock horns in the much-awaited summit clash of the World Test Champion in Southampton starting tomorrow. While New Zealand go into the match with a magnificent series win over England, India, on the other hand, have hardly played any cricket in the last month or so. They have had a few practice sessions and a couple of intra-squad games. Will it be a disadvantage to Virat Kohli’s men? That only time will tell but with just over 24 hours to go before the final, the Indian fans have gone berserk on social media. Several fans shared rib-tickling memes on Twitter as the countdown to WTC final begins.

Despite reaching the semi-finals on many occasions, Virat Kohli has never led India to an ICC title. The same is the case with Kane Williamson’s New Zealand, who are searching for their maiden ICC title. A win in the World Test Championship will be a great relief after a heartbreaking and controversial loss in the ICC Cricket World Cup final in 2019.

Meanwhile, former Indian cricketer VVS Laxman said that a win in the WTC final with inspire many youngsters to play Test cricket just as the way 1983 World Cup win and 2007 T20 World Cup win did.

India’s squad for WTC final: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha
