WTC Final: Hitman to beat Dada! Aim for three big records
Farooq Engineer said that the Indian batsmen would not have wanted to be exposed in such a situation against the strong Australian pace attack and that is why Rohit Sharma decided to bat first. He settled in England and was talking to ANI.
India’s decision to bowl first was a bit of a surprise even though they won the toss. Our batsmen will not want their weakness to show against the Australian bowling on a new, greener track. Captain Rohit Sharma may have taken such a decision for this reason.

We are in hope. I think Mohammad Shami and Mohammad Siraj will be very effective on this pitch. Farooq Engineer added that Rohit Sharma’s decision was not a bad decision but a bold one. He has also played 46 Tests and five ODIs for India.
Farooq Engineer pointed out that India will have three crucial players when they come out to bat against Australia in the WTC final. Cheteshwar Pujara will be the crucial player in the Indian batting. Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill are two names that are equally important. Our batting line-up is very good. Farooq Engineer said we have the best overall team.
Meanwhile, the selection of the Indian team in the finals shocked and surprised many. The reason for this was that star off-spinner and veteran R Ashwin was dropped from India’s playing eleven. India played Ravindra Jadeja as the only spinner. Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj, Shardul Thakur and Umesh Yadav are the pacers in the team.
