WTC Final: 350, 375, 400, 425… How many runs can India chase down? Which target will be difficult

New Delhi. India returned to the match to some extent by performing better on the third day of the World Test Championship final. India scored 296 runs in their first innings against Australia despite losing 6 wickets for just 152 runs. After this Australia took 4 wickets within 123 runs. Australia got a lead of 173 runs in the first innings. Including 123 runs in the second innings, his total lead over India has been 296 runs.

In such a situation, the big question is that how big a target will the Australian team give to India. How many runs can the Indian team achieve the target and how many runs can be overshadowed by it. Most of the questions were asked on the third day of WTC Final, the answer of which is to be found in the fourth day’s game.

The WTC final between India and Australia is being played at the Oval Ground in London. On the first day of the match, Australia scored 237 runs for 3 wickets. That is, the first day was entirely in the name of Australia. The second day was also made in the account of Australia, who scored a total of 469 runs in the first innings and then took India’s 5 wickets for 151 runs. If we look at the third day’s game, India scored 145 runs and managed to dismiss Australia’s top 4 batsmen.

In the last session of the third day of the World Test Championship final, there was a debate among former Indian cricketers and commentators that what are the chances of the Indian team winning. What is that score, within which Australia will have to be stopped in the second innings. If we take out the essence of all the answers, then the general consensus was visible that if the target is around 350 runs, then India can win this match.

Commenting on Star Sports, Sunil Gavaskar, Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, S Sreesanth said that if India has to maintain the hope of winning, Australia should try to get them out in the second innings for less than 200 runs. If Australia scores 225 or 250 runs in their second innings, then it can be difficult for India because if this happens, India will get a target of more than 400 runs, which will not be easy to achieve.

Former coach Lalchand Rajput also said in a conversation with News18 Hindi that if India has to win, Australia will have to be stopped from scoring 200 runs in the second innings. This is the opinion of veteran cricketers of India. If readers also want to give their opinion on the target to be given to India, then they can give their answer in the comment box.
