WTC Final 2023: Former India captain Virat Kohli is ready to enter another ICC final. In the IPL, when his team RCB was eliminated in the first round, he immediately reached England without delay and started preparing for the World Test Championship. Some videos of his practice have also been shared on social media by the BCCI. His team may have made it to the IPL playoffs, but Kohli's form at the moment is immense. He is scoring a lot of runs continuously. Meanwhile, now he will again enter the WTC finals, for which the whole country is waiting. He will come to bat at number four. After scoring a century in the IPL, Virat Kohli is expected to score a century in the World Test Championship final as well. Now Virat Kohli has reached that point, where if he scores a big century, he will work to create a new record.

Virat Kohli can become the highest run scorer in ICC finals

In fact, if we talk about the ICC final, the record of scoring the most runs in this is in the name of Kumar Sangakkara, the captain of Sri Lanka. Keep in mind here we are talking about ICC finals, that is, the players who scored the most runs in the finals of One Day World Cup, T20 World and World Test Championship. In the finals, Kumar Sangakkara has 320 runs in seven innings. At the second number is his compatriot Mahela Jayawardene. He has scored 270 runs in seven innings of the finals. On the other hand, talking about former Australian wicket-keeper Adam Gilchrist, he has 262 runs in four innings. Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has scored 247 runs in six innings of ICC Finals. After this comes the number of Kane Williamson, who has scored 227 runs in five innings so far. Now let's talk about Virat Kohli, who has scored 217 runs in six innings of ICC Finals so far. That is, he is 103 runs behind number one ranked Kumar Sangakkara. If he scores more than 103 runs in the two innings of the WTC final, he will take the number one spot.

Virat Kohli's performance in WTC has been like this

Talking about Virat Kohli's performance in the World Test Championship so far, from the year 2021 till now, he has batted in 28 innings of 16 Tests. In which 869 runs have been scored. His average is 32.18, while the strike rate is 44.84. However, during this time he could score only one century and three half-centuries. But his form is back now. When the series of four Test matches between India and Australia was going on, then a century came from his bat, although in the rest of the matches his bat came only lightly. But now with the kind of form he has shown in IPL, it does not seem that a big century will not come from his bat. So wait for June 7 and after that Virat Kohli's batting will come.
