WTC Final: Dinesh Karthik Finds A Way For India’s Comeback After 327/3 By Aussies On Day 1

In the final of World Test Championship 2023 being played at Oval between India and Australia, the Aussies had a superb performance on Day 1. With the brilliant hundred of Travis Head and Steve Smith fifty, Australia put up a score of 327 runs at the loss of three wickets.

Meanwhile, the veteran Indian wicket-keeper batter Dinesh Karthik who is one of the experts for this WTC final has given advice for India’s comeback. Dinesh Karthik believes that if Team India manages to take early wickets on Day 2, it will be their sole opportunity to make a significant comeback in the World Test Championship final against Australia.

While speaking to Cricbuzz about India’s chances in this epic clash, Karthik said,“If India need to come back in the game, make no mistake, there’s only chance is if they pick 3 early wickets in first session. If they don’t do that, we will be way behind. Immediately, we will start looking at draw as a win. Australia have a long batting lineup, if you don’t get them before 400-420, it’s going to be a real hard work.”
