Team India’s skipper, Rohit Sharma, has praised individuals for showing great character in India’s journey to the ICC World Test Championship. Next month, Team India will take on Australia in the World Test Championship finals at Oval Stadium in London. Recently, the BCCI shared a video in which Rohit Sharma is seen praising players and reflecting on the team’s journey. He says, “After the WTC final in 2021 in Southampton, we quickly had to regroup and get ready for the next cycle.
The team faced many challenges,” says Rohit Sharma
He further says, “I thought in that cycle we played some really strong cricket. We faced many challenges, and I thought to come out of there was obviously going to take a lot of character from not just some individuals but everyone.” India lost the WTC final in 2021 against New Zealand and went on to play against England after two months, winning two out of four tests, but the series was postponed to later.
Few important players won’t be playing in the final
Many individuals have given the performances we needed from them. India’s two most sensational batters, Rishabh Pant and Shreyas Iyer, who played an important role in India’s test cricket, won’t be playing in the final as the latter is down with an injury while the wicketkeeper-batsman is still recovering from a car accident he had earlier this year. These two were the only batsmen other than skipper Rohit Sharma to make more than 500 runs. On the other hand, Jaspreet Bumrah, who took 45 wickets in 10 tests, will also be out of the final as he is still recovering from an injury.
