WTC 2023: The final of the World Test Championship is being played between India and Australia. So far two days have been played and the Indian team is seen on the back foot. Where Australia's batting worked to push the Indian team back on the first day, after the work done by the Kangaroo bowlers on the second day, Team India's difficulty increased even more. Now today the third day's game will be played, if the Indian team lags behind here too, then the comeback will be very difficult. By the end of the second day's play, the Indian team had lost five wickets and the last pair of batsmen were at the crease, after which the bowlers would come to bat. For this team India, the talk of 469 runs is far away, the target of 270 runs will have to be achieved first.

Team India will have to save the follow on at any cost

Australia's team lost the toss and the first batsmen hit 469 and the top order of Team India completely failed. By the end of the second day's play, Team India has scored 151 runs at the loss of five wickets. But still the Indian team is behind by 318 runs. Now to think from here that the rest of the middle and lower order batsmen will score the remaining runs would be meaningless. Although anything can happen in cricket, but achieving such a big target is not an easy task. In such a situation, now the first goal of Team India will be to save the follow-on. That is, the Indian team will have to go towards 270 runs from here, which is not a very difficult task. Only about 120 runs have to be added. The good thing for the Indian team is that Ajinkya Rahane is still unbeaten, which can be expected. At the other end is KS Bharat, who is not very experienced, but it is sure that only if he supports Rahane, the boat will sail through.

There is a lot of depth in Team India's batting, but runs have to be scored.

The good thing for Team India is that Rahane and Bharat are still at the crease, but after that there is not much left in the batting lineup. After these two, something can be expected from Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav, who bat. The rest are Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj, the bowlers who are very dangerous, they will also score a lot of runs, it cannot be assumed. If the Indian team saves the follow-on, then the possibility of defeat in the match will also reduce. But if there is a follow through by mistake somewhere, then it will be difficult. It should be expected that after being on the backfoot for the first two days, Team India will do some charisma by showing some good play on the third day and returning to the match.
