India and New Zealand are ready for the final two-year World Test Championships to be played in Southampton from 18 to 22 June. It will be the first final of this format and both teams are training hard to win the Test Championship mace. Fast Indian player Ishant Sharma and young opener Shubman Gill looked very confident before going to the final against the Kiwi team. Ishantr highlighted the differences in the processes involved in playing at home and in England in a conversation at the Star Sports Cricket Connected session.
“You have to train differently and adapt to change. In India, you get the reverse swing after a while, but in England, the length is more complete as a result of the swing. So you have to adjust to the lengths, ”Ishantr said.
“It’s not easy to force that and the weather here is cooler, so it takes time to adjust to the weather. And the Quarantine makes it hard because you can’t go to the ground, after the IPL we weren’t allowed to go and train. The way you train in the gym and train on the floor is very different, so you have to adapt to that and it takes time, ”he added.
Regarding the ban on the use of saliva on the Cricket ball as a result of the COVID-19 regulations, Ishantr said: “I think it’s not that difficult. I think the ball will swing even without saliva and someone has to assume to keep the ball.
“And if the ball is kept well in those conditions, then it’s easier for the bowlers to take the gates in those conditions,” he added.
Gill said this. “When I toured England with the India A and Under-19 team, everyone asked me to play a number of balls if I wanted to race. But I think the intention to race should never go to the back seat and you should look to Survive.
“When you’re looking to race, the bowlers get to the back foot and you can put pressure on the ball. If you want to survive, you usually get more good balls than you should get. I think sometimes you have to leave Loose balls to survive in England. So that was India. A and learning from the under-19 tour, ”Gill added.
