The final of the World Test Championship (WTC) is going to begin on June 7 between India and Australia. In this match, Indian captain Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli will make a special record as soon as they enter this final match. In this case, both these veterans will leave behind India’s most successful captain MS Dhoni. If we pay attention to the most important thing, Dhoni, Rohit and Kohli are not at the top in this list of playing the most ICC finals.
Yuvraj Singh is the player, who played the most ICC finals for Team India. He has played a total of 7 ICC finals including the 2000 ICC Knockout, 2002 Champions Trophy, 2003 World Cup Final, 2007 T20 World Cup Final, 2011 Final, 2014 T20 World Cup Final and Champions Trophy in 2017. Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are in second place on this list. All three have played a total of 5-5 final matches so far. That is, Rohit and Virat can leave Dhoni behind as soon as they enter the WTC final.
Players with the most ICC final appearances for India
Yuvraj Singh – 7 finals (2000, 2002, 2003, 2007, 2011, 2014, 2017)
MS Dhoni – 5 finals (2007, 2011, 2014, 2013, 2017)
Virat Kohli – 5 finals (2011, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2021)
Rohit Sharma – 5 finals (2007, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2021)
Sachin Tendulkar – 4 finals (2000, 2002, 2003, 2011)
Ravindra – 4 Finals (2013, 2014, 2017, 2021)
Ravichandran Ashwin – 4 finals (2013, 2014, 2017, 2021)
Ashwin and Jadeja can beat Sachin Tendulkar
However, if Ravichandran Ashwin plays in the final match and Ravindra Jadeja enters this match, then they can leave Sachin Tendulkar behind. Ashwin and Jadeja have played four ICC finals each. At the same time, Sachin Tendulkar also played four ICC finals. At present, it seems dicey for Ashwin to play in the final according to the team balance. Even if he comes to play and Jadeja, who is almost certain to play, then both of them can beat Master Blaster. These two also played the WTC final in 2021 for the last time. This could be the second consecutive World Test Championship final for both of them.
