Australia have edge over India in WTC final, feels wasim Akram

Former Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram opines that Australia has an edge against India in the World Test Championship (WTC) final as the English conditions can suit them better.
In an event ahead of the World Test Championship (WTC) final, former Pakistani bowler said, “Australia is slightly favourites; however, it depends on weather as well, and I think weather will be excellent. Like the way it is, the toss is also crucial, and pitch also matters, but Australia are slightly favourites.” Akram praised Mitchell Starc and said that he should not drop his pace.
“Mitchell Starc is a very good left arm pacer, he just needs to stay injury-free. He should not drop his pace. In Test matches, pace is important, and in T20s, variation is important,” he added.
India and Australia have faced off in 106 Tests. India has won 32 matches, Australia has 44 wins, 29 matches ended in a draw, and one ended in a tie. With India’s two-Test series wins in Australia over the last few years and their dominance at home against the Aussies, India’s record in the last few years has seen improvement. Out of 16 Border-Gavaskar Trophy series against Australia since 1996–97, India has won 10 series, while Australia has won five, with one ending in a draw.
