India outplayed Australia to take the series 2-1 to continue their fourth direct test series win over Australia.

Sourav Ganguly, the former Indian skipper has led India to many famous victories and laid the path for India’s dominance in World Cricket. Speaking to Revsportz, the Delhi Capitals mentor congratulated India’s victory over Australia and lauded India’s overseas win against England and Australia. Sourav Ganguly also said India has a great chance of winning the World Test Championship this year.

“Firstly, congratulations to India for beating Australia. India has won in Australia, and they have won in England so there is no reason why they can’t win it again (In the WTC final). Bat well, score 350-400, and you’ll be in a position to win. Yeah, I see Shubman Gill retaining his place on the side. He has been brilliant in the last six-seven months. What else does he need to do? He’s a permanent player now,”

Ganguly also added Shubman Gill should play in the finals of the World Test Championship of KL Rahul who has a very good record in England, Ganguly praised Indian spinning duo Ashwin and Jadeja for their performance in the series and also credited Axar Patel for his contribution in the Border Gavaskar Trophy.

“Ashwin and Jadeja have been very good. You also have to speak about Axar Patel. He quietly does a good job lower down the order with the bat. Whenever he gets to bowl, he bowls well. That’s India’s strength, having Jadeja, Ashwin, and Axar. I know you can’t play all three away but there is tremendous potential there,” Ganguly added.

India will take on Australia in the 2023 WTC Final at Kensington Oval on June 7, 2023. Team India has lost the inaugural edition of the WTC Final in 2021 against New Zealand at Southampton.
