Ravi Shastri on Joe Root

“Full credit to Root to adapt to what the team needs (after reverse six). You get batters who are so stubborn. I speak from experience of sitting in a dressing room where a lot of players were hesitant to make a change because they’re afraid of what they might lose,”. Ravi Shastri said during commentary.

The commentator further said that

“Literally had to push them to try something different. Because they are so used to accumulating those runs over the years. Sometimes you forget you got to evolve with the times. Because the opponent is evolving. He knows your game. He is upon you,”. Ravi Shastri added.

In the very first match of the World Cup 2023 in India, New Zealand and England played each other. The tournament started on October 5 in Narendra Modi’s stadium. New Zealand won the toss and elected to bowl first. Kane Williamson is not available for the first match of the World Cup.
