The final match of the World Test Championship is to be played between India and New Zealand will be played from June 18, exactly seven days from today. Team India is practicing these days at The Rose Bowl Stadium in Southampton, the ground where this historic Ind vs NZ WTC Final will be played.
BCCI took to twitter to post a video to share a glimpse of team India’s intense training session. While Rishabh Pant, Rohit Sharma were seen playing some attacking shots during practice, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane paid more attention to perfect defensive strokes.
Bowlers R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami were seen practicing their bowling with full dedication.
This was the second day of Team India’s group practice. On June 3, Team India reached Southampton and after three days of strict isolation landed in small groups for practice. Like the first day of group practice, on the second day also Rishabh Pant and Rohit Sharma were seen hitting aggressive shots.
If reports are to be believed, Team India can also play an intra-squad match to prepare for the final match of the World Test Championship on June 11.
The Indian team also have to play a five-match Test series against England after the World Test Championship final match. The Ind vs Eng five-match Test series will begin on August 4 and will end on September 14. In the video of the practice session, one can see that all the Indian players are looking very fresh and are all set to face the mega challenge against the BlackCaps.
