ICC WTC Final: Brendon McCullum calls India’s bowling attack ‘best to travel to all conditions’ – Former New Zealand captain turn commentator has expressed that Virat Kohli led Team India’s bowling attack is the best to travel to all conditions. India and New Zealand will square off in the final of the World Test Championship in England on June 18. Indian team is already in England and have started the practice while New Zealand are playing two-match Test series against host England. 

ICC WTC Final: “I can only really talk about the time I was around the international game. India have had the likes of Kapil Dev, Javagal Srinath but I think in the last 20 years would have to be close to their best seam-bowling line-up. And then spinners Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin as well. I think, it’s probably the most-rounded bowling line-up and is probably the best bowling line-up to probably travel to all conditions,” McCullum told sports today.
