‘Team India would like to win the final for Pujara’
In the video, R Ashwin has said that this time we would like to win the final of the World Test Championship for Puji (Cheteshwar Pujara), he recently played his 100th Test and if we can do this for Puji, it will be good for the team. Would be a great achievement. Ashwin said that our team would like to win this final for Pujara.
This journey was difficult without Dhoni – Ashwin
R Ashwin further said in the video that making it to the WTC final for the second time in a row is no small feat, it definitely started after the retirement of MS Dhoni in 2014 and since then till now this journey has been done by senior players. It hasn’t been easy, but the team’s hard work has paid off in the last two WTC cycles.
Rohit Sharma also roared
In this video of BCCI, Captain Rohit Sharma has said, “I believe we have played very good cricket in this cycle of WTC. We were challenged many times and not just a few players but all the players showed great spirit to overcome it.
Rohit heaped praise on his teammates who made a spectacular comeback after the disappointment of losing to New Zealand in the 2021 final. He said, “It is a cycle of two years and during this time we played a lot of Test matches. Many players played in this cycle. On every occasion some player took charge. He did the kind of performance we were expecting from him.”
