The countdown to the final of the World Test Championship has begun. All cricket fans are eagerly awaiting the final match between India and New Zealand in Southampton. New Zealand are currently playing a two-Test series against England to strengthen its preparations. At the same time, after three days of rigorous carriage, Team India has also begun its practice. Former India cricketer Yuvraj Singh is not happy with the format of just one Test match to determine the winner of the WTC. “This could lead India to a tough time in the final,” he said.

Yuvraj told Sports Tak, “I believe this situation is the best of the three Test series because if you lose the first game, you can come back in the next two games. No. It will be a level match but New Zealand will have some advantage.

Yuvraj Singh said India’s batting team is stronger than the New Zealand team led by Kane Williamson. He said, ‘I believe the Indian team is strong as we have won outside the country in the last few years. Our batting is strong and I think we are on par with bowling. Rohit Sharma now has a lot of experience in Test matches. He has seven centuries to his name and he has won these four matches as starters. However, both Rohit and Shubman Gill have never opened an innings in England. She knows about chutney, the Dukes ball swings early. They need to adapt quickly to the situation.
Yuvraj said that it is important in England to pay attention to the batsman at every session. He said, ‘In England it is important that you pay attention to one session at a time. In the morning the ball swings and seams and in the afternoon you can score a run, the ball will swing again after tea break. As a batsman you can succeed if you stick to these things. Yuvraj wants Shubman Gill to show his talent in England after Australia. “Shubman is very young, still inexperienced, but success in Australia should boost his confidence.
