India’s race to the WTC final

Rohit’s difficulties as captain have increased as India will fight for the WTC final. Mein In Blue will have to win the Test series against Australia either by 2-0 or 3-1 to qualify for the WTC final. On the other hand, Australia is at number one spot in the points table of WTC final. But as India haven’t lost a series to Australia at home since 2004, Rohit Sharma will have to keep going.

For the unversed, India has won all the previous three editions of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
But with three defeats in the last three ICC events, Team India is desperate to end the drought. And the four-match Test series will also determine India’s fate in the two consecutive WTC finals.
