Tim Southee About ‘Rohit Sharma’
“Rohit Sharma’s a tremendous player in all three formats and personally a guy I like watching bat, his style and the way he can take a game away from the opposition is great to watch”.
“But I know as a bowling group that it’s a dangerous line-up throughout, Rohit is only one of many very good batters in this Indian batting line-up that we have to be on top of our game against.”
On India’s captain, he added: “As a player, you like to test yourself against the best, and Virat [Kohli] is one of the best to play the game, definitely one of the modern-day greats but it’s not only him.
“We know there are so many dangerous players in this Indian batting line-up so we’re going to have to be on top of our game as a bowling unit and we know how dangerous they can be.”
New Zealand will play in the World Test Championship (WTC) Final after defeating England by 8 wickets in the second Test at Edgbaston and won the two-match series 1-0. The first Test between these two teams ended in a tie.
Devon Conway defeated England’s bowling attack in his first Test series. While the left-hander hit a double century at Lord’s, he backed it up with an outstanding 80 in the second Test. The WTC Final of India and New Zealand is going to be held on June 18 in Southampton.
