Some tips from Gavaskar for the Indian batters: WTC 2023 final

  • Adjust your bat speed. Gavaskar said in T20, you need to hit the ball for quick runs. But in Test cricket, you need to be more patient and controlled.
  • Play as late as possible. Playing late will give the ball more time to swing. This will make it harder for the bowlers to get you out.
  • Bowl fuller-length deliveries. This will allow the Duke’s ball to swing and will make it harder for the batsmen to score runs.
