No practice for India! Rohit Sharma & Co cancels T20 World Cup final pre-match training session

Team India has the chance to banish the memory of their loss to Australia in the final of the 50-over World Cup on home soil last year.

Ahead of the much-awaited T20 World Cup final, Rohit Sharma and Co. have decided to cancel their practice session. On the other hand, South Africa will conduct a training session before the mega clash on June 29 (Saturday).

One of the probable reasons for skipping the training session might be providing ample rest to the players. India on Thursday trounced defending champion England by 68 runs to reach the final of the T20 World Cup. Before that, India played Australia on June 24. To note, team India have also addressed their pre-match media conference.

Rohit Sharma and Co. aiming glory

Team India has the chance to banish the memory of their loss to Australia in the final of the 50-over World Cup on home soil last year.

Despite India being the epicentre of the Twenty20 game, through the hugely successful Indian Premier League competition, their only triumph in this competition came 17 years ago. India’s last trophy of any kind was the Champions Trophy in 2013.

But the team have taken care of their business with little drama, beating arch-rivals Pakistan in New York and going on to win their group before a key win over Australia in the Super Eights.

“We’ve been very calm,” said captain Rohit Sharma ahead of the T20 World Cup final. “We understand the occasion of the final. It’s important we stay composed, because that helps you make good decisions. We have been very steady, calm, and that has been the key for us,” he added.
