The final of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand will be played in Southampton, England from June 18 to 22. Team India will then play a five-Test series against England from August 4 to September 14. In this context, one particular comment from Monty Panesar, the former English International cricketer and left-arm spinner, comes as a surprise and inspiration to Rohit Sharma. He said, “It is time for Team India senior opener Rohit Sharma to prove himself on English soil”  

In a recently conducted interview, Panesar said, "I expect Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill to start the Indian innings in the final of the World Test Championship. However, this would be a real challenge for Rohit Sharma. Panesar further commented, "England must prove itself by bowling swing balls on the pitches and Rohit Sharma should let the world know that he is a talented swing player on this tour.”

Rohit Sharma, who made his Test debut in 2013, has played only 38 Tests so far. However, he has been a regular in Test matches for the last two years and is proving that he is an extraordinary player Test Player!
