New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson has asserted that the Kiwis are pretty happy with the team combination for the World Test Championship (WTC) final against India. After New Zealand won the toss and decided to bowl on Saturday, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson revealed that they will be going in with an all-pace attack, with all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme being picked as the fifth pace bowling option ahead of left-arm spinner Ajaz Patel.
Cricket is, no doubt, an ever-changing game and Jimmy Anderson could just be the last to join the prestigious list of players who have reached the 1000th first-class wicket. Anderson is expected to reach this amazing milestone in the upcoming weeks, thus joining 215 skilled players who are already on the list.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson admitted that India are a very strong side and that they expect a tough contest from Virat Kohli’s men. After all the hype over the past few days, the World Test Championship (WTC) final is all set to get underway on Friday, amid the threat of rain. Speaking ahead of the WTC final in Southampton, Williamson praised India for their strength across all departments. He added that both teams will be looking to give it their best, and that the anticipation level is really high.
