As per their conversation, it can be estimated that both Mohammed Siraj and Mohammed Shami (Lala) will set foot in India’s playing XI against the Kiwis. However, it will be a thing to see which XI players will take up the field for India during the summit clash.
“We have worked hard for finals and nobody can take that away from us! There was no doubt we were gonna be featuring in the WTC Final.
“It’s like football, we gotta keep our standards high,” said Kohli during the same presser,” stated Kohli during the same presser.
India will be facing New Zealand on 18 June for the mega event and they will have less time for their preparations due to mandatory quarantine in the UK. On the other hand, Blackcaps will have an added advantage as they are already showing against the home side for a two-match Test series where they will get the idea of playing conditions over there.
It remains to be seen how Virat Kohli led side will gear itself up in the limited time after their quarantine period in England.
