Cummins and Rohit Sharma talk about leading their sides in a WTC Final

Australian captain Pat Cummins talks about the chance to play in the final at a neutral venue.  

“The prospect of playing in the World Test Championship Final has been a big motivator for us over the last couple of years, more so now having missed out on over rates last time,” Cummins said.

“To play at a neutral venue like The Oval adds another element for both sides who make the Final. It’s exciting and has been a goal of ours for a while now.

“We are confident we can secure a place while here in India after a really strong 12 months. The Final would be a great reward for the players and staff who have done so well,” the Australian captain concluded.

Indian captain talks about leading India into the final of the World Test Championship for the second time in a row. 

“Leading Team India out onto the field of play at the World Test Championship Final would be special,” Rohit said.

“We have grown and developed as a team during this competition and to be in with a chance of lifting the Mace at the Oval in June, we know we first need to overcome a tough Australia side.

“There have been so many dramatic moments in Test cricket lately, and there are undoubtedly more to come. I am excited by the prospect of booking our place at the Final and hopefully creating history later in the year.”
