As per Chappell, the game will be played in Oval and the condition will be favourable for Kohli.
Team India will lock horns with mighty Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) Final 2023 at the Oval in London starting from June 7.
The Men in Blue will be aiming for a long-awaited ICC title by winning the all-important match. But a formidable Australian team will stand in their way. India certainly made things difficult for Australia during the home Test series. However, India have suffered injuries to some of its key players including KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant and Jasprit Bumrah.
Meanwhile, former Australian cricketer Greg Chappell has warned their side about the threat of Virat Kohli.
As per Chappell, the game will be played in Oval and the condition will be favourable for Kohli. Moreover, Australian bowlers might be unable to use the circumstances to their advantage. Furthermore, considering his track record against Australia, Kohli enjoys a challenge and would not back down from going toe-to-toe with Australians.
“Kohli was asked a lot of questions in England in 2014 and 2021 by Anderson, Broad and the rest of the English bowlers. They bowled some excellent lines and lengths to him in conditions that suited them. They knew he is the best and lifted themselves up when bowling to him. To think or say that the Australians will be able to do the same from ball one is not correct,” said Chappell.
“Virat loves to bat against the Australians. We have seen that in Australia. His record is evident how good he is. He loves a contest and is never one to back off from one. Kohli will benefit from the Oval’s likely heavy bounce,” said the former Australia great adding that Kohli has the potential to significantly alter the result of the game.
