“If you said the WTC final is in a week’s time, I would pick India” : Monty Panesar
According to a report by PTI, Former England spinner Monty Panesar recently expressed his views ahead of World Test Championship final.
World Test Championship Final between India and New Zealand is just 3 weeks away. Monty Panesar, a former recent spinner expressed his views regarding India vs New Zealand WTC final.
According to PTI, “If New Zealand do well in the next two Test matches, then the momentum is going to favor them against India. But if England can beat them, suddenly they’re going to be low on confidence and it is a good time for India to come,” Panesar told news agency PTI.
He further said “James Anderson and Stuart Broad are usually very effective at this time of the year but England have picked a B team (for NZ series) in the absence of some key players, so we will see,” he added.
“If you said the WTC final is in a week’s time, I would pick India as they have played much more hard cricket. The team is probably believing that it can win from any situation, while New Zealand have played good cricket, but they haven’t really had the hard victories like India,” he further said.
“What really makes a top team is when you win from really difficult, tough situations,” he signed off,” PTI reported him saying.
Notably, the World Test Championship final is scheduled to be held from 18th June to 22nd June. With less than 3 weeks remaining for the finals, both teams are gearing up to lock horns with each other. New Zealand is all set to play 2 matches test series against New Zealand starting from 2nd June. While team India will reach England around 2nd June.
