“India should ensure that New Zealand don’t have a big lead. They need to keep up the pressure and take wickets at regular intervals backed by good catching. Virat Kohli needs to have a straight and simple game plan and everyone should be on the same page with defined roles,” Ramiz said in his latest YouTube video.

WTC Final: Ramiz Raja feels that R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will be India’s trump card in the final.

“India has been successful in this format because of his bowling attack. They have bowlers who can pick 20 wickets. Going forward, I feel India will be better served because they have two spinners in Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja if the wickets get dry. New Zealand, on the other hand, is a one-dimensional attack and the bowling attack is best suited for first innings,” a former Pakistan cricketer concluded.
