WTC final: Mahabharata is about to break into Test cricket, 'Pandavas' are ready in India too

WTC final: Mahabharata is about to break into Test cricket, 'Pandavas' are ready in India too

After the postponement of IPL 2021, the focus of cricket fans is now on the World Test Championship. The Indian team was also announced for the World Test Championship on Friday. India have to play the championship final against New Zealand in Southampton on 18 June. This is the first time that the International Cricket Council (ICC) has organized the World Test Championship. India has also qualified for the finals of this prestigious championship according to its reputation in Test cricket, for which big Test teams like Australia and England had to be defeated.

In this championship in terms of dominance in international cricket, along with India, the credibility of New Zealand will also be at stake. In the current ICC Test rankings, the same two teams are at the top-2. India is first and New Zealand is second. Now let's talk about those Pandavas of India who will be responsible for winning this Mahabharata of Test cricket. The interesting thing is that it also has a new face. The Pandavs of India are Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, Hanuma Vihari and Rishabh Pant.

Middle order is the life of team india

In the cricket team of the world, no one has a middle order like Team India at this time. Cheteshwar plays Pujara at number three. Pujara is currently among the few players in the cricket world who are called Test Specialists. Those who know how to defend 'front foot'. Instead of playing fancy shots, who know how to make the bowlers sweat by sticking to the crease. There is no need to tell anyone anything about Virat Kohli. The team's vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane also has the specialty of Test Specialist batsman. Hanuma Vihari is also kept in a similar category. Rishabh Pant's face is new in the Pandavas of India's middle order in Test cricket. We will talk about it, but first, let us tell you the test records of the other four players.

Pujara has 6244 runs in 85 Test matches on his account. He has an average of 46.59 and 18 centuries in his account. Captain Kohli has scored 7490 runs in 91 Test matches. He has an average of 52.37 and 27 centuries are in his account. Rahane has scored 4583 runs in 73 Test matches. His average is 41.28. He has scored 12 centuries. Hanuma Vihari is a relatively less experienced batsman but he has won the confidence of the team. He has played 12 Test matches and has 624 runs in his account. He has an average of 32.84 and 1 century in his account, but the new name in this list is Rishabh Pant. And will have to talk to them separately.

Rishabh Pant will be the eye of the whole world

Rishabh Pant, who kept listening to criticism about his batting for a long time, created a panic in the last 6 months. He emerged as a major match winner of Team India. Also, the matches he won were charisma-like wins. If you think, in a team where there are very big batsmen, there is a separate discussion on Rishabh Pant, then the thing becomes special. Recall that the Brisbane Test was played in January this year. Team India, filled with unfit players, somehow landed in the Brisbane Test match.

Brisbane was a strong fort of the Kangaroos, but India destroyed that fort. His commander was Rishabh Pant. India had a mammoth target of 328 runs in the fourth innings. Pant had played an innings of not out 89 in difficult conditions and had won the team.

Earlier in the Sydney Test too, he had brought the team to the door of impossible victory. But then after his dismissal, the team had to go to draw the match. India had a target of 407 runs in the fourth innings in the Sydney Test. Pant hit 97 runs off 118 balls, bringing the score to 250 for 4 wickets. That is, the victory was about one hundred and fifty runs away, but after their dismissal, R Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari drew a test in difficult conditions. This is the reason why now in Test format also Rishabh Pant is like that strong pillar of middle order who can win the match.

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

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.
