The Indian team is all set to take on New Zealand in the highly-anticipated final of the ICC World Test Championship. The big names in the sides would be expected to soak up the pressure in the high-octane clash and bring the coveted trophy home.

The skipper of the Indian side Virat Kohli is expected to lead the team from the front. If Kohli fires with the bat, it would be very difficult for the Kiwis to contain the Indians.

Moreover, fans across the globe are eagerly waiting to see Virat jumping in joy after scoring another ton. If he smashes another century in the World Test Championship final, then King Kohli will break Ricky Ponting's record of scoring most centuries as a captain.

It would be Kohli’s 42nd international century as skipper. At this point, both Ponting and Kohli have 41 centuries as a captain.

Moreover, former India cricketer Parthiv Patel recently claimed that Virat Kohli would take inspiration from his performance in the 2018 series in England when he silenced all his critics and scored heaps of runs.

“I think probably he will have to give himself a bit of time and try to think what he did in 2018 – where he got a number of hundreds," Parthiv said on Star Sports' Game Plan.
