WTC Final: Batting coach Vikram Rathore says India will have to score at least as many runs in the first innings

India were 146 for three on the second day of the final of the World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton. By the end of the game, captain Virat Kohli (44) and vice-captain Anjikya Rahane (29) are at the crease.

The two batsmen have taken a fourth wicket partnership of 58 runs. Vikram Rathore gave the answer as to how many runs India should score in the first innings in these bowlers’ favor.

“We should try to score as many runs as we can but it is enough to make more than 250 runs,” Vikram Rathore told a press conference after the second day’s play.

Vikram Rathore praised Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shubhaman Gill. The duo of Rohit and Gill scored 62 for the first wicket. And in the meantime both players faced 121 balls.

He further said that batting means making runs. Rohit and Gill showed seriousness and scored wherever they could. Salute to Virat and Rahane, who batted themselves but the salute should be credited to the bestman.
