With the first final of the World Test Championship (WTC) less than a month away, cricket fans are looking forward to witnessing a top race between two world-class countries – India and New Zealand, filled with many outstanding players.
Rohit, who has 2,615 tracks in 38 tests at an average of 46.69, will be entrusted to the top during the four-month grueling series in England. He may have taken only one test in English, but one can never write it off.
Rohit coach Dinesh Lad also believes that Rohit can score great results in England once he calms down. The 34-year-old has actually played only 20 away tests so far, scoring 945 runs at an average of 27.
“Not only Rohit, but all Indian batsmen will have trouble straightening the Duke’s ball in English conditions. However, once Rohit gets to his feet, it is very difficult to get him out,” Lad said in an exclusive interaction with India TV.
“Rohit had a great performance on the ball tour in Australia. He will also be trusted at the top in England and I am sure he will fulfill his responsibility. In English conditions, I hope to participate in the WTC final as well,” he added.
New Zealand has already arrived in the UK for its series of two tests against England. The Indian camp, on the other hand, is expected to arrive in the first week of June.
“I don’t think the Indian team will have a lot of problems. Players like Virat Koli and Rohit are in a great rhythm. In such a situation, it won’t take long for them to adjust to the conditions,” said Lad Kiwi, who has an advantage over India when it comes to getting used to English conditions.
Lad also acknowledged Rohit’s hard work and described how the Mumbai batsman returned to the national pen.
“Rohit was deeply injured when he was not part of the 2011 World Cup team. I had explained to him that he should focus only on his game. He will only return based on his cricket skills and you can see the results of his hard work. today, “he said.
