India vs Australia Live Score, WTC 2023 Final: India and Australia will meet today to play the World Test Championship (WTC). India will be looking to lift the WTC title at the second attempt after losing to New Zealand in the final of the inaugural edition of the championship.

The prestigious encounter will feature the famous Dukes' ball, the preferred choice for Test and elite cricket played in England. The match is scheduled to be played over five days, from the 7th to the 11th of June, with a back-up day available in case of adverse weather conditions.

Both India and Australia are missing some key players ahead of the WTC final. India have lost the services of pacer Jasprit Bumrah, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and KL Rahul to their respective injury. Meanwhile, Australia have also seen their star player Josh Hazlewood miss the final Test due to a problem with his left Achilles, coupled with a strain in his left side arm.

Most cricket pundits and former cricketers, including Ricky Ponting, Wasim Akram and Ross Taylor, have given the Kangaroos the edge as the match will be played in swinging conditions at The Oval in London.
