The final of the World Test Championship 2023 is just 3 days away. The India vs Australia match will be played at England’s K Oval between June 7 and 11. The Indian team is practicing thoroughly before this match. However, a different thing was seen in the practice of the Indian team this time.
Currently, the Indian team is practicing at the Orundel West Sussex ground in London. The Indian team reached here in three stages. After that, all the players started training together. This time the Indian players were seen practicing fielding with yellow and green balls instead of the red balls used for this test. These balls are used to practice the fielders standing in sleep. Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli and Pujara were seen practicing with the ball.
In the atmosphere in England, the ball swings a lot. This is how the yellow and green rubber balls used by the Indian team in practice swing. This will allow the players to adapt to the situation. It will also help to keep an eye on the ball. It is for this reason that Indian players are seen practicing in this manner. At that time, both India and Australia will try to win the World Test Championship title for the first time.

Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Ajinkya Rahane, KS Bharat (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Shami, Mohammed. Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Jaydev Unadkat, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper)
