ormer India women’s coach WV Raman knows a thing or two about batting. In an interview with Hindustan Times, he spoke about the challenges that Indian batsmen will face in England, and the subtle technique they would need to make there.
He started by talking about Indian batsmen who are most likely to play the WTC final — Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. In fact, he also passed on some valuable tips to the players. “Rohit has played enough. He is vastly experienced. Shubman Gill despite being a youngster has got a lot of exposure of playing international cricket. There is no reason why they cannot do it in the WTC final. What is important in England is to take it moment by moment. There you can’t say you are totally set if you have batted for two hours because the weather can change suddenly. So, it is important to always take it one ball at a time.”
He went on to say, “Players like Rohit, Shubman and Pant need to work out a method to try and succeed in these conditions without compromising too much of their basic technique because that has helped them become the players they are.”
