Former Indian cricketer Atul Wassan offered advice to Rohit Sharma ahead of the ICC World Cup 2023 final against Australia. Atul Wassan suggested that Rohit Sharma should adopt a measured approach rather than an ultra-aggressive one in the high-pressure encounter.
Rohit Sharma has been in brilliant form, providing flying starts to the team throughout the tournament. The right-handed batter attempted to unsettle the opposition bowlers in the power play. He scored 550 runs at an average of 55 and an impressive strike rate of 124.15.
Virat Kohli And Rohit Sharma Are Legends – Atul Wassan
Speaking to ANI ahead of the India-Australia final, Atul Wassan described the Australian team as dangerous, with experience in big matches and a never-die spirit. Wassan hoped India wouldn’t have a bad day in the final match of the tournament.
“The preparation has been nice since we have won all our matches. It seems that the match will be easy but it would not be the case as I know the Australian team well and have played with them,” Wassan told ANI.
“They are energetic and dangerous. They have that never-die spirit. They have six to eight players from the 2015 and 2019 World Cups so they have experience of big matches. In India, cricket is a matter of life and death. Our players know it and soak the pressure. That is why Virat Kohli and Rohit are legends. Every team had a bad day in this WC. Hope this never comes for us,” Wassan added.
They Will Be Out Trump Cards – Atul Wassan
Atul Wassan expressed concern that Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood could exploit Rohit Sharma’s aggressive approach in the final. Wassan acknowledged that Australia gained momentum after losing the first two matches in the World Cup.
“All players are performing well, that is why the team is doing good. Earlier, only one or two players used to play really well and the rest were not up to the mark. Rohit has set a platform for the rest with his batting, that is why Virat Kohli has performed so well.”
“Mohammed Shami has performed so well, but it is Jasprit Bumrah who puts the pressure on batters due to which other bowlers are thriving. Ravindra Jadeja and Kuldeep Yadav have also played their roles well, they will be our trump cards tomorrow,” Wassan concluded.
