Tim Paine’s Prediction: Tim Paine Thinks India Will Be The Winner Of WTC Finals
While interacting, the wicketkeeper-batsman had no second thought before predicting India as a WTC winner. Paine also mentioned said that if Virat Kohli and his mates play anything near their best, it’ll be a very easy win.
“My prediction is India will win pretty comfortably if they play anyway near their best,” said Paine in a video shared by Cricket.com.au. Notably, Australia has lost two home Test series against India under Paine’s leadership. Hence, the wicket-keeper is well versed with the potential of the Indian team, and he subsequently sees them clinching the trophy in Southampton.” Tim Paine said.
Virat Kohli will be eager to win his first ICC trophy as a captain. He has failed multiple times on previous occasions and will be all pumped up for the final and men in blue will be looking forward to sealing the first WTC title. With stats pretty much in favor of New Zealand, India only lost one series in this Test Championship, and that too against New Zealand.
Meanwhile, the Indian team is practicing hard in England to be in great shape both mentally and physically for a match.
