WTC Final: Teams of India and New Zealand are fully prepared for the final match of ICC World Test Championship. This match is to be played from 18 June in Southampton, England. Former India explosive batsman Virender Sehwag has given some special tips to Rohit Sharma for the final match. He believes that if Hitman follows his advice, then he can perform well in the final match.
Tips to play cautiously in the beginning
Virender Sehwag believes that in the final match, Rohit Sharma will have to play the new ball carefully while opening. He will have to wait for the bad ball to hit the big shot. Sehwag believes that instead of batting aggressively on the pitch of England, one should start slow. For this, Sehwag gave the example of his 106 runs in 183 balls on the tour of England in the year 2002.
Congratulations to Rohit
Virender Sehwag praised Rohit Sharma a lot. He said that Rohit Sharma has played a lot of cricket in England and his experience will come in handy in the final of the Test Championship. Sehwag said that if you bat carefully for 5 to 10 overs and get set at the crease, then you can bat aggressively.
Sehwag said this about Kohli
Sehwag said that Indian captain Virat Kohli will need to show some patience on the pitch. He will have to spend more and more time at the crease. If he does that then he will be able to score well. Apart from this, he advised Kohli to use fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah wisely. He said that if India can get some England wickets in the beginning, then its hold on the match will be strengthened.
Weather will be a big factor
Sehwag said that the mood of the weather in England will affect the match to a great extent. He said that if the weather is good then the ball will swing less, while if the weather is bad, the ball will swing more. It will be difficult to bat if it is cloudy during the match. If the weather is clear and the sun comes out, it will be easier for the batsmen to play on the pitch.
