140 Years Poor Record Haunt Australia in the WTC Final
Australia led by Pet Cummins has one of the poorest records at The Oval, where the final between the top two Test sides will be played from June 7 to 11, in the more than 140 years of Test cricket in England. With only seven victories from 38 Tests at the renowned South London site, Australia has the lowest victory rate in England at 18.42%, having played at The Oval in the inaugural Test in England played there in 1880.
India is in a Some Good Confidence
On the other hand, India hasn’t done very well there either, winning just twice, drawing seven times, and losing five times. But the 157-run victory over England here in 2021, which was its first triumph in a Test match at the stadium in forty years, will give the Rohit Sharma-led team confidence.
Australia Will Have Their Training Session at Beckenham
Australia will have their first comprehensive training session in the UK on Thursday at Beckenham, which is around 20 km from the centre of London, according to cricket.com.au. Since both teams will only have access to The Oval’s facilities two days before the game, Pat Cummins and his team will train there over the weekend.
