Countdown to the World Test Championship has begun. The final match between India and New Zealand is set in Southampton. New Zealand fast bowlers can test Team India openers under England conditions. Rohit Sharma is believed to be on the field as an opener. However, it is interesting who will choose between Virat Kohli Shubman Gill and Mayank Agarwal to support Rohit. Meanwhile, former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh has picked Rohit and Shubman Gill as India’s opening pair for the WTC final.

Speaking to Sports Today, Yuvraj said, “Rohit Sharma is very experienced in Test cricket. He has scored 7 centuries as a starter. However, both Rohit and Shubman have never opened in England. He knows the challenge, Duke turns the ball over quickly. They should adapt to the conditions as quickly as possible. It is important that you pay attention to one session at a time in England. In the morning the ball swings and seams, you can score runs during the day, after the tea break, the ball turns back. As a batsman, if you stick to these things, you will succeed.

Yuvraj was not happy with the current rule for the World Test Championship final. According to him, three matches must be played in the final to determine the WTC winners. He said, ‘In a situation like this, there must be three best Test series because if you lose the first match, you can come back in the next two. India are already a little uncomfortable as New Zealand are already playing a Test match in England. There will be eight to 10 practice sessions but nothing can compensate for match practice. This is going to be a level match but New Zealand have some advantage.
