Rohit Sharma is almost certain to play as an opener in the final (WTC Final) of the World Test Championship against New Zealand. But who should get a chance between Shubman Gill or Mayank Agarwal as his partner. Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh expressed his opinion on this.
New Delhi. There are now 7 days left in the final of the World Test Championship between India and New Zealand. Both the teams are busy preparing for this great match. In the conditions of England, New Zealand’s fast bowlers can create problems in front of the Indian batsmen. In such a situation, deciding Team India’s playing-11 is also no less than a challenge. It is almost certain to play Rohit as an opener. But who should be given a chance as their partner? This question is standing in front of the team management. Will Mayank Agarwal or Shubman Gill get this chance? Former Indian all-rounder Yuvraj Singh has expressed his opinion regarding this.
Yuvraj feels that Shubman Gill should open the innings along with Rohit Sharma. In a conversation with Sports, he said that Rohit has become very experienced in Test cricket. He has scored 7 centuries as an opener. He should use this experience in England. However, Rohit never opened the innings in England. At the same time, this will be Shubman’s first tour of England. In such a situation, there will be a challenge before both.
Have to bat in England keeping in mind the session: Yuvraj
The former all-rounder said that both are aware of the challenge. The Duke ball swings a lot in the beginning. In such a situation, both have to adjust to the conditions quickly. It is important for any player in England to bat keeping in mind each and every session. In the morning the ball will swing and seam. However, as the days go by, it will be a little easier to bat. During this you can score runs. However, after the tee break, the ball starts swinging again. In such a situation, as a batsman, if you adjust to these conditions, then no one can stop you from being successful.Ajinkya Rahane was admitted to the Cricket Academy on the advice of the doctor!
Meanwhile, Yuvraj is also not happy with the rules made for the final of the World Test Championship. Before him, Indian coach Ravi Shastri had also objected to this. According to Yuvraj, there should be a best of three final to decide the winner of the WTC.

‘WTC Final should have best of three series’
He further said that I believe that in such a situation, there should be only a series of best of three Tests. Because if you lose the first match, you can come back in the next two matches. India is at a slight disadvantage. Because the team of New Zealand is already playing Test series in England and nothing can be better preparation than playing the match. The Indian team will get only a few days for practice. In such a situation, the Kiwi team will definitely have a little heavy.
