New Zealand defeated India in the ICC World Test Championship final and lifted the trophy at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton. The team led by Kane Williamson defeated Virat Kohli’s men by eight wickets.
With New Zealand becoming the first team to become the world champions of the longest format, Kane Williamson and his men celebrated in a grand style. R Ashwin, the Indian off-spinner, revealed that Kiwi players celebrated until midnight and the event went in the ground to continue their party.
According to Ashwin, it was tough to see their celebration. “After the match, New Zealand have this custom of celebrating with the trophy and a few drinks in the dressing room. It was tough to see it. I think it is the flip side of having a room above the ground. They celebrated until 12. They even arrived at the pitch, and it sounded like a war cry to express their happiness. It was quite upsetting to see as we couldn’t make it,” Ashwin said in the latest video on his YouTube channel.
India will take on England in a five-match Test series. With a long series ahead, the Indian cricketers have been given a break from the bio-bubble. Speaking on the same, Ashwin stated the break was much needed.
“We were in the bubble throughout. So, after a long time, we are able to get some fresh air and step out. I have rented a car, and I am just driving around the country. First, we visited Devon. It was a beautiful and picturesque place. We went at an altitude that connected the ocean and the hill,” he added.
