Virat Kohli has been dismissed by Tim Southee 10 times across all formats and no other bowlers achieved the feat in the India captain’s career. In Test cricket, Tim Southee has dismissed Virat Kohli three times while in ODIs six times and once in T20Is. If Kohli can negate the Southee factor in the ICC WTC Final, India could get an advantage.Rohit Sharma vs Trent Boult: Undoubtedly one of the best batsmen of the limited-overs cricket but Rohit Sharma is yet to prove his brilliance in Test cricket, especially in England where he has played just one innings, scoring 34 runs. Hence, when he takes on Mumbai Indian teammate Trent Boult in the final, he will realise the challenge. Shane Bond has already revealed a banter between Rohit and Boult during the IPL.WTC Final, IND vs NZ: “What I do know is that even during the IPL, Trent Boult was running in and swinging the ball and hitting him on the pad and telling him ‘That’s going to happen in the WTC final’,” Shane Bond told Star Sports.Also Read: ICC WTC Final: IPL 2021 teammates to turn rivals in Southampton on June 18th, check 4 such pairsKane Williamson vs Ravichandran Ashwin: One of the Big 4s of cricket, New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson is one of the best batsmen of spin bowling. But he too has faltered against a spinner and it’s none other than Ravichandran Ashwin. The Indian ace has dismissed Kane Williamson five times in five matches so far. In the final, Ravichandran Ashwin will aim to get Kane Williamson’s wicket and give India an advantage.WTC Final, IND vs NZ: Cheteshwar Pujara vs Kyle Jamieson: While both Rohit and Virat are two of the greatest batsmen of the current generation but no one plays Test cricket as good as Cheteshwar Pujara. However, his resilience was tested by Kyle Jamieson who dismissed him twice during India’s New Zealand Tour. With his express pace and ability to use variations, Kyle Jamieson has already become a Kiwi star. Against Pujara, he will once again want to get him out as quickly as possible to prevent him from building up steady innings.Also Read in Hindi: India Squad for ICC WTC final: विश्व टेस्ट चैंपियनशिप के लिए भारतीय टीम का हुआ ऐलान, देखें पूरी टीमTom Blundell vs Jasprit Bumrah: Considered one of the best pacers to come out from India, Jasprit Bumrah has used his excellent bowling skills to dictate matches. In the ICC WTC Final, he will be India’s ace and Kiwi opener Tom Blundell will be his first target. Having dismissed him twice during the NZ series in 2020, Bumrah will be a confident bowler but more importantly, if he can get him out as quickly as possible, India can put pressure on New Zealand from early on.
