WTC Final Between India and NZ to Start Friday: Captains Kohli Vs Williamson

WTC Final Update: India VS NZ

Friday, 18th June 2021


As the much awaited World Test Championship (WTC) finals all set to commence on Friday June 18 at The Ageas Bowl, in Southampton between India and New Zealand, fans have their sights set on the two captains Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson.

Both Kohli and Williamson enjoy legendary positions in the cricketing world where both skippers are considered to be superlatively talented in their individual games and are expected to display their mettle on English soil as well in the course of the upcoming matches.

So far as the WTC finale is concerned, the Kiwis will come with some amount of experience having got acclimatized with the local conditions with adequate match practice here. They even defeated the English side on their home ground recently in a Test series. Team India on the other hand, last seen in action during the now shelved Indian Premier League 2021, has had only a few days of practice in England before the big day.

Captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli has a record of ten Test matches behind him that he has played in England, in which he scored a total of 727 runs at an average of 36.35 and a strike rate of 55.36.

In total, the captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) has scored two centuries, three half centuries and three ducks in England along with 82 boundaries and one six.

Kohli's best score in England is 149 that he slammed back in 2018 when despite losing the game to England by 31 runs, he hit 22 fours and one six having faced 225 balls. He had registered a strike rate of 66.22 in the Test match.

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on the other hand, has had a record of only five matches that he has played in England where he scored a total of 261 runs at a strike rate of 38.95 and an average of 26.10.

Williamson boasts of one century, one 50 and one duck along with 28 fours in the country. Like Kohli, the KIWI captain also registered his highest score in England in a losing Test match where he put up 132 runs on the board, in 2015.

The match scheduled to start at 3.00 PM IST tomorrow is expected to be one that will go down history, unless pacers exhibit an anti-climactic spectacle for viewers.
