New Delhi: The battle for the final of the World Test Championship between the Indian team and New Zealand has very little time left. The skirmish between India and New Zealand will begin in Southampton on 18 June. Team India will leave for England on 2 June.
Even before the start of the match, the former cricketers have started making predictions. Meanwhile, Kapil Dev has given special advice to Virat Kohli before the tour of England.
Kapil Dev advised Virat
Kapil Dev said in an interview to Mid Day, ‘Virat Kohli may not be able to score a century, but he is scoring runs. He is also expected to score runs in England. But, while doing so, they have to avoid their extreme aggression. They get a little excited, which is their nature. But I am afraid that they might not get too aggressive. They have to test their aggression from session to session. It would be better to wait for the moment to climb the opposing team than show more aggression.
He said, ‘They have to score runs, but I will caution them not to be too aggressive. Doing too much in the condition of England or nothing will be achieved quickly. There you will have to keep an eye on the movement of the ball. If you play seam and swing better then take some patience then you will have success in England.
The skirmish will start from June 18
The World Test Championship final against New Zealand will be played at Southampton on 18 June, while the series against England will begin in Nottingham from 4 August. The second Test will be played at Lodgers on 12 to 16 August, the third at Leeds on 25 to 29 August, the fourth at the Oval on 2 to 6 September and the fifth at Manchester from 10 to 14 September.
