New Delhi. The final match of the World Test Championship is to be played between India and Australia at the Oval ground in London. Before this grand match of the longest format of the game, the squads of both the teams have been announced. On June 7, the teams captained by Rohit Sharma and Pat Cummins will be face to face. Before this big match, former Australia coach Darren Lehmann is angry with his own team. The reason for their displeasure is that the team is not serious about the WTC Final.
According to Darrell Lehmann, the Australian cricket team is going to repeat the same mistake which they did before the start of the Gavaskar-Border series on Indian soil. The Australian team went against Rohit Sharma & Co. in the month of February without playing a practice match, for which they had to bear the brunt. Australian players then said that India would face us with their spin attack, but in the practice match, we would have been given a track that would help fast bowlers to play.
Now the players of the Australian team do not want to play practice matches before the WTC Final, due to which former coach Darrell Lehmann is unhappy. Let us tell you that Team India is also going to enter the final of the World Test Championship without any practice match. Due to the busy schedule of IPL, Rohit Sharma’s team does not have much time to play practice matches.
Darrell Lehmann told SEN Radio, “It is necessary to play practice matches to adjust to the conditions.” Practice matches are necessary for keeping pace with the ball and wicket and preparing to deal with pressure.
Lehmann said, “Not playing a practice match is not a good idea.” I hope that the team will not be harmed by this, but if this strategy does not work then it will definitely be asked whose decision it was. By the way, we can win the Ashes 3-1.
