India aims to end decade-long ICC trophy drought in WTC Final clash against Australia

In a highly anticipated showdown at The Oval in London on Wednesday, June 7, Rohit Sharma will lead Team India as they go head-to-head against Australia in the final of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC). This crucial contest presents India with a golden opportunity to end their decade-long drought in ICC events, as their last significant triumph came in the form of the ICC Champions Trophy title back in 2013.

Since their memorable victory in 2013, the Indian cricket team has faced numerous obstacles in their quest for glory across various ICC tournaments in different formats. Their most recent setback occurred in the ICC WTC final in 2021, where they were defeated by New Zealand under the captaincy of Virat Kohli.

On the opposing side, Australia has secured their spot in their maiden WTC final and will be eager to achieve a favorable outcome before shifting their focus to the highly anticipated Ashes series.
