The final match of the second edition of the World Test Championship (WTC) will be played between the team India and Australia at the Kennington Oval in London. Both teams have started to work hard ahead of this mega game that starts on June 7. After the end of IPL 2023, both teams are sweating it out in the training session in London. Meanwhile, some Oval Ground figures have also begun to take center stage. You have come to know what is the record of both India and Australia in this ground, now do you know how is the record of the two pillars of India team, Virat Kohli and Captain Rohit Sharma in this ground?

Rohit Sharma has a special memory associated with this terrain. There is also a memory of Virat Kohli, but his personal record is very poor in this field. The Indian team played its last game here in 2021 against England. In that match, the Indian team defeated the British here after a 50-year wait, recording a resounding 157-run victory. Now it’s the kangaroos’ turn to challenge. For the first time, the Indian team will face any team other than England here. Are we now going to know how are the figures of Virat and Rohit in this field?

Rohit’s bat will spew fire!

Hitman, that is, Team India captain Rohit Sharma has golden memories at the Oval. Although he has only played one test here but due to his century innings in that test, the India team recorded a resounding victory. At this ground, Rohit scored a total of 138 runs in that match, which included his 127 runs in the second innings. This was the same test match in which the India team recorded a historic victory at the Oval under the captaincy of Virat Kohli. Previously, the team won here for the only time in 1971 under the captaincy of Ajit Wadekar.

Virat behind Rohit in numbers

Speaking of Virat Kohli, he has played a total of three Test matches at The Oval. If we remember the last historical game of 2021, then in that Virat had scored a total of 94 runs playing innings of 44 and 50 runs. But before that, he did not bat in the two test matches he played here in 2014 and 2018. For this reason, Virat has scored 169 runs in a total of 3 test matches. His average is only 28.16. On the other hand, Rohit scored 138 runs in a match and his average is 69. That is, Virat is behind Rohit in terms of statistics from this ground.

The last time India had to face defeat to New Zealand in the World Test Championship final. Surely these two veterans also have a wound from an old defeat in their minds, which they would like to fill with victory here.
