Team India captain Virat Kohli has insisted on having more than one match in the future World Test Championship (WTC). In this regard, he supported the stand of the team’s head coach Ravi Shastri and former captain Sachin Tendulkar. India lost to New Zealand in the WTC final on Wednesday but he clarified that his opinion is not based on the result. He said that a one-time match may not be enough to decide the best team from the tournament played in two-year phases.
“I don’t completely agree with one match to decide the best Test team in the world,” Kohli said. He said, “If it was a Test series, then there would have been a chance to test the character in three Test matches with the team back in the series or give a complete blow to the other team. For two days of cricket you put pressure on someone And then suddenly you know that you are not the best Test cricket team. I don’t believe in that.”
Circumstances reveal in the three-match series
Virata said, “I believe the final should be three matches so that you can prepare accordingly. I think it should be a tough piece and something that definitely needs to be really worked on in the future.” Playing a three match series gives you an idea of the ups and downs, your efforts and the changes in situations during the series. This gives you a chance to rectify the things you did wrong in the first match and then actually Let’s see who is the better team in the three-match series.”
not too bothered by the result
The Indian captain further said, “We are not too upset with this result because we as a Test team understand what we have done in the last three-four years and not only in the last 18 months. So it is a matter of a team. There is no measure of who we are as we are and the energy and ability we have had over the years.”
