India lost to New Zealand in the World Test Championship’s inaugural final, but the Asian powerhouse earned another chance to compete for the top prize. Many Indian players, including Virat Kohli, Pujara, Shardul Thakur, and Mohammed Siraj, arrived in the UK early because they were travelling to England before the IPL 2023 playoffs.

“Most of the guys have played enough cricket here”- Cheteshwar Pujara
Speaking to the ICC two days before the final, veteran Indian batsman Cheteshwar Pujara voiced confidence in the ability of the Indian batters to perform under English circumstances. For the third or fourth time in their careers, players like Rahane, Pujara, and Kohli are competing in the UK.
“We have had very good preparation so hopefully this time we will cross the line,” Cheteshwar Pujara told the ICC.
“Most of the guys have played enough cricket here and some of them have played County cricket too. And you need that experience…we know each other’s strengths and we have played a lot of cricket against Australia as well so we know what to expect from the opposition team,” Cheteshwar Pujara added.
Pujara is in fantastic form at the plate. As Sussex captain, he scored 545 runs in eight innings, including three hundred, in County Championship Division Two.
India will rely on Cheteshwar Pujara to score big against a strong Australian pace attack at the Oval. India will have fond memories at the venue after they won their last Test here against England in 2021.
