Virat Kohli ‘will get runs for India’ in WTC Final 2023 says Greg Chappell
WTC Final 2023: Former Indian coach and Aussie legend Greg Chappelle believes that the conditions at the Oval will help Virat Kohli, and he will be among the runs in the World Test Championship Final against Australia. Chappelle said that Kohli will have an upper hand on Aussie bowlers at the Oval.
WTC Final 2023: Australian legend Greg Chappell has said that the conditions at the Oval will aid former Indian captain Virat Kohli as the Indian team prepares to face Australia in the World Test Championship Final. With just three days left before the start of the ‘ultimate test’, Chappell said that Kohli will be able to work the Australian bowlers due to their inability to exploit the conditions as well as the New Zealand bowler did in the last WTC Final.

While speaking on the Backstage with Boria show on Revsportz, Chappell said, “Virat Kohli was asked a lot of questions in England in 2014 and 2021 by Anderson, Broad and the rest of the English bowlers. They bowled some excellent lines and lengths to him in conditions that suited them. They knew he is the best and lifted themselves up when bowling to him. To think or say that the Australians will be able to do the same from ball one is not correct. The English know their own conditions better than anyone else in the world. And Virat loves to bat against the Australians. We have seen that in Australia. His record is evidence how good he is. He loves a contest and is never one to back off from one.”
“The Oval from all of my experience is going to have bounce and it will suit Virat. You have said to me that the weather has stayed dry so far. If the weather continues to stay dry the Oval is as close to an Australian wicket in England as you will ever get. And that will suit Virat. I think if he is mentally switched on like I have said to you earlier in the conversation, he will get runs for India. He is a very good player and someone who can make a telling difference.”
