Following the Border Gavaskar Trophy (BGT), India and Australia will play again in the longer format of the game in the World Test Championship (WTC) final at the Oval, starting on June 7. Former Australia captain Aaron Finch believes that India will start as favourites in the WTC final as their all bases are covered in the squad.
India reached the WTC final for the second consecutive time after winning the recently concluded Test series by a margin of 2-1. Earlier, they lost to New Zealand by eight wickets in the inaugural edition of WTC 2021 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. The Black Caps won the ICC trophy after finishing runners-up in the 2015 and 2019 World Cups.

They Have A Lot Of Bases Covered – Aaron Finch
Aaron Finch praised India’s pace attack and said that they would play a key role in the match against Australia. Finch believes that India have a lot of bases covered even without Hardik Pandya in the squad.
“I am not sure what Hardik’s Test match plans but when you look at Shami, Umesh, Suraj and these guys, they are really very very good fast bowlers. Siraj is among the top bowlers in the world at the moment. He can all swing the ball. They beat England in England last time. So India have a huge chance for the final. They have a lot of bases covered whether they play one or two spinners,” Aaron Finch said.

They Are Not Going To Play Three Spinners – Aaron Finch
While speaking about the changes in the Australian line-up for the WTC final, Finch joked that they would not play three spinners in the playing XI. The former Australian opener said that the visitors should have won the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series 2-1, but they lost due to the collapse in the second innings of the Delhi Test.
“They are not going to play three spinners, that’s for sure (laughs). They should have won 2-1. It is just that one hour of madness in Delhi,” he added.
