The young side of Team India has done a great job in the past few months registering remarkable victories over Australia and England. Youngsters like Rishabh Pant, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, and Mohammad Siraj emerged as one of the positive prospects for Team India.

“WTC final will be challenging for the team. But it’s time to enjoy what we’ve has done in past years. There’s no pressure on me and there won’t be in the future. It’s the final, so it’s time to enjoy it,” Virat Kohli said in the pre-departure presser
“It’s a great opportunity to reflect and relax. Just for the guys to roam around freely, considering that we will have a five-Test series coming. It will give us time to regroup and that is required before an important series like this,” said Kohli when asked about the long gap between the WTC final and England series.
