Flem’s Verdict: Why Aussies have edge over India in WTC final – and the rising star who will be the difference

A better pace attack, the continued rise of all-rounder Cameron Green and question marks around India’s batting add up to Australia being too strong in a close one in the World Test Championship final. 

There’s not too many shocks in either squad but India look a bit short in the batting department whereas the Aussies clearly have the edge when it comes to the fast bowlers and then they’ve got a six-foot-eight guy ready to back up the main quicks with 145km/h thunderbolts delivered from a great height. 

On paper, I just think Australia’s got the edge. I think they’ve got better options and a stronger line-up with Green coming in at No.6. 

His bowling will play a big part in the World Test Championship final but also in the Ashes.

There’s still questions about our batting – can David Warner get himself into form so he actually gets to do what he’s called for in the last couple of days and retire at the SCG in January.

Bowled through the gate! Sensational from
