WTC Final: If anyone was asked after the first day's play between India and Australia at The Oval that who would win, no one would have taken the name of Team India. Perhaps few people will say this even after the third day, but India made such a comeback on Friday that it can have hope of victory in the next two days. Even if there is no victory, defeat can be avoided. He will tell you what is necessary for the team on the fourth day.

On the third day of the World Test Championship final, after the innings of Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur, India made some comeback on the basis of all the bowlers including Ravindra Jadeja. First, Team India scored 296 runs in their first innings. Then Australia was not given a chance to score runs openly and took 4 wickets for 123 runs only.

Either take wickets or restrict runs

On the fourth day, when Marnus Labuschagne and Cameron Green will start to lead Australia's innings, they will try to score maximum runs without losing any wicket in the first session. Australia currently has a lead of 296 runs, which is huge as well. Despite this, there can be an opportunity for India and for that today's first session will be the most important.

It was clear in the match on Friday itself that the bounce in the pitch is uneven. Many balls have been very low. Along with this, spinners are also getting turn. Ravindra Jadeja implicated Steve Smith and Travis Head in this. That's why it will be most important in the first session to get at least the wicket of Marnus Labushen. Even if this does not happen, tight bowling will create a famine for Australia.

Least loss in batting on the fourth day

Although Team India will try to register victory, but in the current situation India is in, its chances are less. This is possible only if India caused maximum damage to Australia within the first session on Saturday. Jadeja's role will be important in this, who had troubled England two years ago on the same ground.

If the Indian bowlers are successful in stopping Australia with a lead of 350 to 375, then the team can try to go for the win in the remaining day and a half. For this, it is most important that his batting should come by the end of the fourth day. If possible, no wicket should fall and even if wickets fall, there should be no loss of more than one or two. Only then the team can have an opportunity to win or save the match.
