Sachin Tendulkar reckoned that County experience will add a lot of value for Labuschagne and Pujara ahead of the WTC Final.
Legendary Indian hitter Sachin Tendulkar predicts Manus Rabshagne and Cheteshwar Pujara will certainly be considered as his team’s shooters for the 2023 World Test Championship final. Prior to the Australia-India summit, Rabshagni and Pujara played in a county set-up, which Sachin believes could be very beneficial for both sides.
Australia’s Steve Smith also spent time building counties to conduct much-needed match practice ahead of his ultimate ICC event. Legendary right-handed batsman Tendulkar admitted that runs are beneficial to batsmen in county cricket, and there is no better way to train than playing practice matches.
“Of course there is great value in playing county cricket. Both Pujara and Rabshanyu have had notable performances in county cricket recently. Smith isn’t quite as good as the other two, but the conditions are different, so anything you can practice for a match will help. Our players have played for the T20 and are now in England and we have some Australian players who have played for the T20 here but I believe playing practice games is no more training. said Sachin, quoted by India Today.
The oval would be a good venue for India: Sachin Tendulkar
Sachin Tendulkar also acknowledged that the oval’s nature helps spinners. He noted that the surface could be a small slide off the pitch rather than a turning track, and that conditions could change depending on overhead conditions, which could be a good spot for spinners. With two good spin options in R. Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, the 50-year-old believes his team can take a lot of comfort from the field.
“Indian teams will be happy to play in the oval. The oval field is designed to help the spinners as the game progresses. prize.” Spinners can rely a lot on bounce, they can rely on a little momentum coming off the field, they can also depend on overhead conditions, they can rely a lot on the shiny side of the ball, so they are not necessarily in the spinning lane. It doesn’t have to be.
An impressive group of Indian cricketers need the ideal balance of talent and temperament as they face an equally impressive Australian side in hopes of winning the ICC Trophy after a decade of drought. The last ICC Trophy won by India was in 2013 when England won the Champions Trophy. Since then, the team has lost three finals and lost momentum in the semifinals four times.
