ICC WTC Final: Former India batsman and current Punjab Kings batting coach in IPL 2021, Wasim Jaffer, on Monday came up with a hilarious meme for his choice of umpire for the WTC Final that has led to all the buzz on Twitter. Sharing the post, Jaffer opted for Sri Lanka umpire Kumar Dharmasena over English umpire Richard Kettleborough.

ICC WTC Final: It is notable that Kettleborough was one of the on-field umpires for all knockout matches in ICC tournaments fixtures that India lost beginning with the 2014 T20 World Cup final. On the other hand, Dharamsena was the one who awarded four runs to England off an overthrow by New Zealand in the ICC World Cup 2019 final- a controversial decision that cost New Zealand the World Cup title in their second consecutive final.

ICC WTC Final: The epic battle between Virat Kohli-led India and Kane Williamson’s New Zealand will take place at the Rose Bowl, Southampton starting June 18. India will be playing a big ICC tournament final after losing the 2019 World Cup semifinal against New Zealand. Virat Kohli is yet to win an ICC Title for India after taking over from MS Dhoni as India skipper. He has lost ICC 2017 Champions Trophy and ICC 2019 World Cup. He would like to erase off previous failures from his memory and create history in the inaugural ICC WTC Final.
