Senior players like Pujara, Rahane, Ashwin, who only play test match cricket, have compared the WTC Final to be an equivalent of a World Cup Final. No doubt players from both the sides will look to give their 100 percent when they take the field. For now, we’ll have a look at a few of the match ups that we can expect from the match - Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli’s struggles against spin a cause of concern: VVS Laxman https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/nBEpqLssB3_drh-sevawcirc/rohit-sharma-virat-kohlis-struggles-against-spin-a-cause-of-concern-vvs-laxman.html Even though India got the better of England in the three-match ODI series on Sunday, former India cricketer VVS Laxman is concerned with how captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma have struggled against England’s spinners. While Rohit failed to read a googly from Adil Rashid and was clean bowled, Kohli perished to Moeen Ali, going back to a delivery that spun back in. Leave Rishabh Pant alone and he will give you those performances: Rohit Sharma https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/uZN2NOXMzo_drh-sevawcirc/leave-rishabh-pant-alone-and-he-will-give-you-those-performances-rohit-sharma.html India opener Rohit Sharma is confident that Rishabh Pant can do well in the T20I series against England as well if he allowed to play with freedom and not pressurised unnecessarily. Pant is making a comeback to the T20I squad on the basis of his brilliant performances in the longer format over the last two Tests. He scored 97 and 89 not out in Australia. Against England at home, he was the third highest run-getter. His century in the final Test in Ahmedabad proved to be a match-turning one. Rohit Sharma’s 161 the defining moment of the series: Virat Kohli https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/GdJdLnBs1H_drh-sevawcirc/rohit-sharmas-161-the-defining-moment-of-the-series-virat-kohli.html India clinched the four-match Test series against England by an emphatic 3-1 margin. After losing the first Test rather timidly, they came back brilliantly to dominate England in the next three Tests. After a methodical victory in the second Test in Chennai, India brushed aside the England challenge in the last two Tests in Ahmedabad, inside two and three days respectively. With the win in the final Test, they also booked their place in the World Test Championship (WTC) final. Rishabh Pant has his own style of batting, but gets the job done: Rohit Sharma https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/la4yOMMIr9_drh-sevawcirc/rishabh-pant-has-his-own-style-of-batting-but-gets-the-job-done-rohit-sharma.html Team India opener Rohit Sharma has stated that Rishabh Pant can continue to bat the way he wants as long as he is doing the job for the team. He also requested critics to cut Pant some slack for his failures. The left-hander smashed 101 from 118 balls as India ended Day 2 of the Ahmedabad Test at 294 for 7, with a lead of 89. Rohit Sharma slams Chennai pitch critics, says everyone uses home advantage https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/2tsdfAQ2sk_drh-sevawcirc/rohit-sharma-slams-chennai-pitch-critics-says-everyone-uses-home-advantage.html Indian opener Rohit Sharma hit out at critics of the pitch for the second Test against England in Chennai, stating that surfaces have been prepared in the same manner in India for many years now. According to Rohit, there is no reason for that to change. He pointed out that every team uses the home advantage so there is no logic in people criticizing India for doing the same. Knew the pitch was going to turn from the start, and prepared accordingly: Rohit Sharma https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/eVQLrdP3Mx_drh-sevawcirc/knew-the-pitch-was-going-to-turn-from-the-start-and-prepared-accordingly-rohit-sharma.html Indian Rohit Sharma made a superb 161 on Day 1 of the second Test against England in Chennai. Rohit slammed 18 fours and two sixes in his innings and featured in a 162-run fourth-wicket stand with vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane (67). You can't just be throwing what could have been such a promising innings: Ponting on Rohit Sharma https://4-dot-cricwaves-hrd.appspot.com/cricket/news/articles/R1BMlWyxjK_drh-sevawcirc/you-cant-just-be-throwing-what-could-have-been-such-a-promising-innings-ponting-on-rohit-sharma.html Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting feels that Rohit Sharma needs to do a lot more than just get starts if they wants to have a successful Test career. After gifting his wicket away after getting his eye in twice at the SCG, Rohit Sharma did the same on Saturday at the Gabba. The Indian captain eased his way to 44 before playing a terrible shot to get out to Nathan Lyon.
