New Delhi: Sourav Ganguly has expressed hope of India’s victory in the final of the World Test Championship. But, there is some condition for this. According to the former Indian captain, if Team India follows that condition then it can win the match. He has players who can make him a champion. Sourav Ganguly gave this statement after the end of the third day’s play at the Oval.
Now the question is whether Sourav Ganguly said this? What condition has he said to follow. What will Team India have to do in their game plan for the fourth day that the match will be in their hands. So let’s first know his statement in detail.

What Sourav Ganguly said on Team India’s chance is unique!
According to what Sourav Ganguly has said, “Anything can happen in the WTC Final. Maybe India will win. But for this he will have to try not to get a target of more than 360-370 runs.
According to him, the target of 360-370 runs can be chased by India because it has Virat Kohli, who is the best chaser in world cricket. Apart from this, there are other batsmen too, who can contribute in taking the team to the destination.
This will have to be done to make Ganguly’s words come true
Let’s now weigh Sourav Ganguly’s expectation on the ground. By the end of the third day’s play, Australia had scored 123 runs for 4 wickets. Meaning their total lead has been 296 runs. Now if Team India tries not to get a target of more than 360-370 runs, then for this, within the next 70 runs on the fourth day, it will have to drop the remaining 6 wickets. The task is difficult but not impossible.
As far as Indian batting is concerned, there is no doubt that Virat Kohli becomes dangerous while chasing runs. His batting average goes up. It should also be remembered from above that the ground is Oval, where Indian captain Rohit Sharma had scored a century in the second innings of the last Test played and which was his first Test century on foreign ground. Now they will have to do something similar in the WTC Final as well, so it can really become a matter.
