ICC World Cup 2023: ‘Go for a fifer, India will win’
Rohit Sharmaand his coach
This could be your last ODI World Cup and I hope you lift the World Cup today. When you were not selected for the World Cup 2011, you were upset. But you continued to devote your life towards this game so your graph never dipped. A century in the final today will be icing on the cake. By the way, your 87 against England at Lucknow was one of the best of your career in my opinion.

What Rohit should do:
Keep batting as you are now. You are playing on the merit of the ball; not attack cricket but the defense is also among selfless cricket. You could easily turn your three fifties into hundreds. You are playing for the team and serving the cause of the country. Even the bowling changes and field placements played a big role in all those victories. That way, you are helping the bowlers perform well.
What Rohit should not do:
I think you know exactly what to do and you know very well what you are doing as a batsman and as a skipper.
Virat Kohli’s youth coach
Keep batting as you have done in the league and batting. Do your best and win the Cup like in 2011.
What Virat should do:
Deliver according to the role assigned to you by the team management.
What Virat should not do:
I think you are smart enough to understand what you have to do on the big day.
KL Rahul youth coach
A World Cup final doesn’t come every day. I hope you enjoy the event and have fun. That’s when the best cricket comes out. I hope you have a great time in front of a great crowd because this is a night you will remember for the rest of your life.
What Rahul should do:
Continue to bat with freedom and purpose. At No. 5, you add a new dimension to the Indian batting. I’m glad you’re keeping up. I think you are among the best keepers in the country along with Sanju Samson.
What Rahul should not do:
It will be better to avoid playing the pull shot if it is not absolutely necessary. You have a wide range of strokes anyway, there’s no shot in the book you can’t play. But until you get your eye in, I want to see you without playing the draw. Besides, I don’t see too many things you shouldn’t do. You are a complete team and no matter the situation, you will always do what is best for the side.
Coach for Mohammed Shami
This is a great opportunity for you to be part of a World Cup champion team. Give me the Cup. Keep cool, don’t think too much about it as a final but be brave.
What Shami should do:
Keep it simple. Try to repeat the Wankhede performance (7-57 v NZ in semis). Try it for a fifer. India will win if you can do that. Your strength is to put the ball on and around the stumps. You must at least try to maintain this.
What Shami should not do:
You must try to do nothing extra. There is no need for that. You should just follow the same routine that has helped you pick those 23 wickets so far in the World Cup.
Jasprit Bumrah’s youth trainer
I wish you can improve soon because that will be crucial in the World Cup final against a team like Australia. And I wish you take five wickets in the end because that is a great achievement for any bowler. It is comparable to a batsman’s century.
What Jaspit should do:
You should continue to focus on line and distance as accuracy is your strength. If you do this well, then I am sure the yorkers will come perfectly and are unplayable. You must approach this final game like any other game. If you prepare in the same way and execute your plans well, the results will follow.
Things Jaspit should not do:
You shouldn’t aim to dismiss any particular Australian batsman as you may be asked too hard and that could backfire. Also, you should not take any undue pressure of the World Cup final at home. It’s easier said than done, but you can do this.
Lakhwinder Singh Gill,
Shubman’s father and coach
Play the final as if you are playing any other cricket game.
What Shubman should do:
You have to play your natural game and give 100 percent.
What Shubman should not do:
You have to think too much about the fact that you are playing a final; that should not be allowed
to put pressure on you.
Former Ranji coach Ravindra Jadeja
Give your best. This is absolutely necessary for India to win. You are a live wire and you are the best.
What Ravindra should do:
I want you to take two to three wickets and save 15 to 20 runs while fielding. The ball will spin at Motera and the closer deliveries will get you a wicket. You are the most dangerous cricketer in this World Cup.
Things Ravindra should not do:
No one needs to remind you of your role in the final.
Shreyas Iyer’s first Ranji coach
Enjoy the habit of winning your one more game in the tournament. That said, reaching the final is an achievement in itself.
What Shreyas should do:
Continue with the brand of cricket being played. It is full of victory. Do justice to No. 4.
Things Shreyas should not do:
Don’t lose sight of the need to focus on the process and I’m sure you’ll keep this in mind. Whatever you have done in the series stage and in the semi-final against New Zealand, it is now history.
Trainer Suryakumar Yadav Parsee Gymkhana
My dream for you is that you get a hundred. If you go into that situation and execute your plan, you will win the World Cup for India.
What Surya should do:
Bat No. 6 always under pressure. You will have to handle it. Number 6 is the most difficult position to bat in an ODI or a T20 match and that is why MS Dhoni became a great player. I hope you too will succeed under that pressure.
What Surya should not do:
You can take it as another game and that is the best way to think. I know you’re a character who hasn’t had a makeover at any major event. You are tough and played many finals for Mumbai and Mumbai Indians and won them too. You and all our players are used to playing finals and you have experience. You should be able to handle the pressure of the decision.
Kapil Dev Pandey,
Youth trainer Kuldeep Yadav
There is a great responsibility on your shoulders. You have no choice but to deliver. The body language should be positive even when things are not going the team’s way.
What Kuldeep should do:
You are bowling very well and you just need to focus on being aggressive. You are at your best when you are attacking and looking for wickets.
What Kuldeep should not do:
As it will be a high-profile final you will be under pressure, but you should not go into defensive mode. You need to be confident. Australia are five-time champions. They are not to be taken lightly, remember.
P Jyothi Prasad,
As Hyderabad’s chief selector, Siraj was selected for his Ranji debut in 2015-16
I wish you all the best. Playing in the World Cup final is a big moment for any cricketer, a huge milestone for you.
What Siraj should do:
I want you to bowl more on the off stump and attack the batter. You are a natural swing bowler. You have to play the batters and hit the right distance. That is the key.
What Siraj should not do:
The final is a different ball game and it’s all about keeping your nerve. You must panic. I thought you were a bit inconsistent with your line and length, especially in the semi-final against New Zealand.
