India's journey to the ICC World Test Championship Final:
It is fair to say that the Virat Kohli-led Team India was the best side in the ICC Test Championship cycle and it's reflected from the fact that they finished at the numero-uno position by the end of the cycle:
The journey begins...
Team India kickstarted its campaign in the Caribbean islands against the Windies in August 2019 with hundreds from Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari, and Jasprit Bumrah also claimed a hat-trick, propelling India to a 2-0 series win and 120 points in the table.
India then hosted South Africa and Bangladesh for three and two Tests respectively, which they won comprehensively by margins of 3-0 and 2-0 respectively.
India's first tough assignment came in the form of a two-match Test series in New Zealand where they were trounced 0-2 as debutant Kyle Jamieson ran through their batting unit consistently.
Having lost to New Zealand 0-2 and the ICC changing the WTC qualification criteria from absolute points to percentage points, India had to ensure that they did not lose 0-4 or 1-3 in Australia but when they got bowled out for 36 at the Adelaide Oval and with several players getting injured amid Virat Kohli's paternity leave, it looked like another whitewash was on the cards.
However, the Men in Blue once again stormed back stunningly as brilliant batting from the likes of Rohit Sharma, Rishabh Pant, Washington Sundar and deadly spin bowling by the duo Ashwin-Axar led to India winning the remaining three Tests by a comprehensive margin to assert their place in the ICC WTC Final 2021. Ravichandran Ashwin was in unbelievable form and he picked up the most wickets in World Test Champion for India.
