Both India and Australia have been consistent performers in the test format, winning most of their series in the last two years. India has an impressive record of 12 wins, 3 draws, and 2 losses in their 17 matches, while Australia has 10 wins, 4 draws, and 3 losses in their 17 matches. Both teams have a balanced squad, with experienced batsmen, quality bowlers, and agile fielders.

However, there are some differences in their strengths and weaknesses. India has a more versatile batting line-up, with players who can adapt to different conditions and situations. They have Virat Kohli, who is arguably the best batsman in the world right now, Cheteshwar Pujara, who is a solid anchor at number three, Opening batsman and captain Rohit Sharma, who can provide explosive starts as an opener, His opening partner and purple cap winner for the highest run scored in IPL 2023- Shubhman Gill is also in a great form, Ajinkya Rahane, who is a reliable middle-order batsman, Ishan Kishan/ K S Bharat, are the dynamic wicket-keeper batsman and Ravindra Jadeja, who is an all-rounder with a handy bat and a lethal arm. India also has depth in their balling, with speed stars like Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Jaydev Unadakt, and Umesh Yadav, they have great spin options Ashwin and Axar Patel who are waiting in the wings.

Australia has a more dominant bowling attack, with pacers who can exploit the swing and seam movement in England. They have Pat Cummins, who is the number one ranked bowler in tests, Josh Hazlewood, who is accurate and consistent, Mitchell Starc, who is fast and furious, and James Pattinson, who is aggressive and fiery. They also have Nathan Lyon, who is a world-class spinner and can trouble the Indian batsmen with his variations. Australia also has some quality batsmen, such as Steve Smith, who is a run-machine and a former captain, David Warner, who is a destructive opener and a senior player, Marnus Labuschagne, who is a rising star and a prolific run-scorer, Matthew Wade, who is a gritty middle-order batsman and Tim Paine, who is a calm and composed leader and a safe wicket-keeper.

The pitch and the weather will play a crucial role in the outcome of the match. The final will be played at The Oval, in London, which is known as the home of cricket. The pitch at Lord’s is usually good for batting on the first two days but tends to deteriorate as the match progresses. The spinners might get some turn on the fourth and fifth day, while the seamers might get some reverse swing with the old ball. The weather in England is unpredictable and can change quickly. There might be rain interruptions or overcast conditions that can favor the bowlers. The toss will be important as both teams would prefer to bat first and put up a big score.

Based on these factors, I think that Australia has a slight edge over India in this final. They have a more potent bowling attack that can exploit the conditions better than Indian bowlers who will definitely miss their spearhead Jusprit Bumrah. They also have more experience of playing in England than Indian players. India has a strong batting line-up that can challenge Australia’s bowlers, but they might struggle against the swing and bounce that Australia’s pacers can generate. India also has some injury concerns with some of their key players like Jasprit Bumrah and KL Rahul.

Therefore, it’s a very tough call, but If I talk without listening to my heart, and look at England’s pitch, weather, and experience of playing on England’s pitches of India and Australia, and the old records of both the teams, then despite the balance of both the teams I would predict that Australia will win the Ind Vs Aus WTC 2023 final in a very close contest. Again, I am saying it is my prediction and I am inviting all the fans of India and Australia to predict the winner of this prestigious final. Please answer in the comment box.
