New Delhi: Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag says that opener Rohit Sharma’s Trent during the World Test Championship (WTC) final to be played between India and New Zealand (IND vs NZ) in Southampton from June 18. It will be an interesting match to play the balls coming inside Bolt.
Bolt and Rohit will have a tough fight
Sehwag feels that considering Rohit’s ability and his recent form at the top of the order, he will definitely be successful in Test matches in England. Sehwag told PTI, ‘There is no doubt that the pair of Trent Boult and Tim Southee will present a lot of challenges for the Indians. He can move the ball both ways and is also very good when bowling in partnership.
Sehwag wants to see the match
Sehwag said, ‘I would like to see the match between Boult vs Rohit Sharma. It will be wonderful to see if Rohit settles at the crease and plays Boult’s opening spell. It will be Rohit’s first opportunity to open the innings in England conditions, although his experience of playing Tests in 2014 will certainly help.
Virender Sehwag said, ‘Rohit is a brilliant batsman and he has played Test cricket in England in the past too (2014) so I think he will face the bowlers quite well as we saw recently when he batted had started. There is no doubt that he will score runs in England this time. Of course, like any opener, he has to be very careful in the first 10 overs and play the new ball to understand the conditions. I am sure that he will get a chance to play his strokes.
Pant is also expected
Apart from Rohit, there is another player who can bat brilliantly like Sehwag and that is Rishabh Pant. Sehwag wants Pant to bat the way he does and he should not get into too much analysis on his technique and method to be successful in England. He said, ‘Rishabh Pant knows his batting better than anyone else and he should not focus too much on what former cricketers, commentators and media are saying and rather what he can do better. should keep.’
