The Indian cricket team has reached Southampton where it will be playing the finals of the World Test Championship against New Zealand beginning from June 18. Team India took the flight to England on June 2 and the Indian women cricketers were also travelling from the same flight. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) released a video clip of the journey of the Indian men and women cricketers and while majority of them were chilled out, felt refreshed and were having breakfast after getting a good sleep, the Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj had a complaint against the Indian opener Rohit Sharma.
Siraj who made his debut in the series against Australia said that they just landed at the Heathrow airport from where the journey to the hotel would take two hours. As per Siraj, he was able to sleep for two hours only because after that, Rohit Sharma woke him up and then he was not able to sleep. Siraj stated that 2 hrs before landing, he felt sleepy and exhausted as the Indian team had a heavy session of running.

Rohit Sharma and Mohammed Siraj both are going to play an important role if India has to win the finals of the WTC. Hitman performed pretty well against Australia and England recently and hopefully he will continue to do that in the finals as well but it won’t be easy as facing the pacers on the pitches of England will be tough especially with the new ball.
Mohammed Siraj will certainly play the WTC final as recently a discussion between Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri got leaked according to which the Indian skipper is planning to make Siraj and Shami bowl round the wicket as New Zealand has few left-handers.
India will also play a 5-match test series against England after the WTC final and both these players will be playing a vital role in that series too.
