As the cricketing world eagerly awaits this clash, former India opener Gautam Gambhir has pinpointed a player whose impact he believes will be pivotal in the final – and surprisingly, it’s neither Virat Kohli nor Mohammed Shami.

Gambhir has identified Shreyas Iyer as the standout player to keep an eye on in the finals. Iyer’s exceptional performance includes a century against New Zealand, marking his second consecutive hundred in this World Cup after a spectacular ton against Netherlands.

In expressing his admiration for Iyer, Gambhir emphasized, “Shreyas Iyer is the biggest game changer for me in this World Cup.

He overcame an injury setback before the tournament commenced, fought his way back into the team, and delivered a breathtaking century in just 70 balls during the knockout stage. His form will be instrumental for India in the final, especially when facing the challenges posed by Maxwell and Zampa with the ball.”

Impressively, Iyer currently stands as the seventh leading run-scorer in the tournament, amassing a total of 526 runs in ten games.
