India skipper Virat Kohli had talked about the best-of-three finals to decide the winners of the World Test Championship (WTC) in the future after his team’s eight-wicket defeat against New Zealand. While he praised New Zealand for winning the finale, the right-handed batsman was not convinced with the idea of one match deciding the champion team.
Despite two days were washed out due to rain, New Zealand managed to thump India on the reserve day of the match. Apart from Kohli, former Indian cricketers also backed the idea of best-of-three finals to decide the champions of WTC. However, former captain and current BCCI president refused to go along with the idea of Virat Kohli.
“It is too early to say. Let this season finish. The ICC will look at a lot of things. At this stage, I would rather wait before saying anything,” Ganguly told The Week magazine.
He praised the ICC for introducing World Test Championship to increase the popularity of the format.
“It is a very good concept for sure. I think Test cricket is the biggest and strongest form of cricket and it should have a final. As far as the one-off Test as a final is concerned, it is the first [edition]. Things will be looked into in the future. The ICC will get feedback from all stakeholders,” said Ganguly.
