Sunil Gavaskar needs no introduction. His 10,122 Test runs and 34 centuries apart, the Little Master was part of India’s 1983 World Cup winning team and also led India to the Benson and Hedges ODI triumph in Australia two years later. The legend is currently in England ahead of India’s World Test Championship Final against New Zealand, where he will be doing television commentary.
It’s even-stevens in my view because both the teams are well balanced. There are some who think New Zealand have the advantage of being match ready (after their 1-0 series win in England). But then India will be match hungry and fresh and eager to get on the ground after a month of inaction. India have more impact players with both bat and ball and they should win this game.
