The WTC Final between India & New Zealand is all set to begin at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Friday. The first session of the Day 1 of the mega clash was called off due to the continuous drizzle in Southampton.
The WTC final will see some big names in International Cricket coming into a face-off with each other. And one such face-off which has caught fan’s attention is between Rohit Sharma & Trent Boult. Mumbai Indians Captain Rohit Sharma will come into a face-off against his MI teammates Trent Boult during the WTC Final clash. The Mumbai Indians franchise has recently shared Rohit’s views on facing Boult in Southampton.
The India opener batsman said that he has some banters with Boult during the net sessions in the IPL 2021. And he is ready to tackle whatever Trent Boult has to deliver at him at the Ageas Bowl. “We’ve had banter during IPL nets, he’s a quality bowler. It will be nice to face him. He’ll ask me some questions with the ball, and I’ll answer them,” Mumbai Indians quoted Rohit as saying.
Rohit Sharma is India’s one of the leading performers in the WTC. He has amassed 1,030 runs in 11 matches being played. Rohit has an average of 64.37 in the WTC cycle 2019-2021 but he doesn’t enjoy the same success on foreign soil averaging 32.25. He has scored four centuries & a couple of half-centuries in the WTC cycle. Rohit Sharma scores the highest runs in WTC during India’s clash against South Africa when he hit 212 runs in an innings. On the other hand, Boult has scalped 34 wickets in nine games in the WTC cycle at a brilliant average of 29.29.
Fans are also eagerly waiting to see both sides go head to head on the grounds of Ageas Bowl. But continuous drizzle in Southampton is playing a spoilsport in one of the biggest clashes of the year. Throughout the WTC Final, it is predicted that there will be cloud cover in Southampton with the prediction of rain on all five days of the WTC final match.
