Scott Styris has said Rohit Sharma might struggle in the finale of the WTC if ball starts swinging. The India batsman doesn’t move is feet well early in his innings and that might prove costly for the veteran in the title clash, starting on June 18 at the Ageas Bowl. The World No.1 Test side New Zealand will take on WTC table-toppers India in what promises to be cracker of a game.

India are likely to open with Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill. While Gill had impressed in Australia, Rohit Sharma scored 345 runs against England at home. Rohit is among the six players who have scored more than 1000 runs in the current World Test Championship cycle.

“Again, it is pitch dependent. I think I can’t stress that enough. I think if the ball is moving around then Rohit will have his struggles,” Styris told Star Sports during the Game Plan show.

“In the Select Dugout, we have done demonstrations after demonstrations about how Rohit doesn’t really move his feet a lot early in his innings. If that’s the case, then the swinging ball could be a problem for him,” he added.
