WTC Final: Former New Zealand coach's 'Guru Mantra' to Team India, these 3 players will get a chance

The Indian team is currently present in Southampton for the ICC World Test Championship Final against New Zealand. This match is to start from June 18. Earlier, while the New Zealand team is busy in the Test series with England, the Indian team has also started its preparations while in Quarantine. Before this match, both the teams will continue to get suggestions from many experts, but the Indian team has got advice from a legend who was New Zealand's most successful coach till a few years ago and took the team to the World Cup final for the first time. Former Kiwi team coach Mike Hesson has given some guru mantras to Virat Kohli-led Team India before the Test Championship final, which can help in winning the title.

Looking at the recent performance of the Indian team, the batting combination in the Playing XI is quite fixed. The batting order from the opening to the number six is ​​absolutely fixed. Despite this, different suggestions are coming about the opening. The responsibility of opening Team India has been on the shoulders of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill for the last few matches, but Hesson has suggested a change in it.

Get the opening done with Mayank, Kiwi has experience of bowling

Hesson certainly agreed that the Indian team management would not make any changes in the opening pair, but suggested that Mayank, who has experience of playing against New Zealand, should be given a chance. The former Kiwi coach told news agency PTI, "They will probably go with Rohit and Shubman but I think Mayank's name should be considered. He has faced their attack in New Zealand and he has good experience playing Kiwi bowlers.

Mayank Agarwal had scored the most runs for India in the two-Test series in New Zealand last year. He was one of the four batsmen to score a half-century for India. India lost that series 2-0.

Have to rely on spin pair

Not only this, Hesson also advised the Indian team on the bowling combination. The final match will be played with the famous deux balls, which provide more swing and movement. Despite this, Hesson believes that spinners will also play an important role in the match. Keeping this in mind, Hesson said, "They (Ashwin and Jadeja) really provide India with a good balance. This means that you will have five main bowlers so that you can attack the right-handed batsmen and the left-handers equally. It should not be forgotten that there are five left-handed batsmen in the New Zealand team.

Milkha Singh's words blew life in the career of this Indian footballer, even today we remember inspiration

The country lost its legendary sprinter Milkha Singh on Friday. Milkha Singh's life is an inspiration for anyone. He has set many records in his life and has set benchmarks for the people. Whatever he got from him, he used to learn something or the other. His inspirational words have the power to add to the broken courage of anyone. Something similar happened to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, the goalkeeper of the Indian football team. Sandhu has told that the words of Milkha Singh, popularly known as Flying Sikh, inspire him even today.

Gurpreet recalled the words of Milkha Singh and told that this great sprinter told him that "You don't have to stop." Sandhu said that his advice helped him to fight the challenges during his European tenure. Veteran Milkha Singh passed away on Friday in Chandigarh due to complications related to Kovid-19. Thousands of countrymen, including players, paid tribute to him.

no substitute for hard work

Recalling the day he received the award from Milkha Singh at a function in Chandigarh in 2015, Gurpreet said, “He (Milkha) told me, “There is no substitute for hard work. I used to vomit blood several times during practice but you don't have to stop. At that time, I was playing club football in Norway with FC Stabeck, where every day was a struggle to prove myself and make it to the starting team. It was a big challenge while abroad, there were days when it was difficult to maintain my enthusiasm.

He said, "However, I myself used to remember the advice of 'Flying Sikh'. He was a great motivator and inspired me to give my all every day. The words he spoke to me are with me even today and will continue to be a great source of inspiration. His words and blessings will be with me whenever I fight for my country on the football field.

keeps the legacy alive

Gurpreet became the first Indian footballer to play in Europe's top division in 2014, representing Norway's FC Stabeck. He remained with the team until 2017 and during this time became the first Indian player to play in the Europa League (European football's second level club competition) in 2016.

Remembering Milkha Singh, who missed out on a bronze medal by a hundredth of a second at the Rome Olympics (1960), Gurpreet said, "The saga of great people and their legacy lives on forever. Milkha Singh ji and his life story have influenced billions of people in India and across the world. He may not be with us but he will continue to inspire generations to come. We all have grown up reading about him and will never forget to share the stage with him. That moment will always be close to my heart.
