Group India reached the Planet Test Championship (WTC) final after toiling challenging for pretty much two and a half years.
The inaugural WTC cycle was introduced for teams to battle it out in red-ball cricket and qualify for the marquee occasion primarily based on their International Cricket Council (ICC) Test Rankings.
India performed specifically properly as they trumped West Indies and Australia in their backyard in the course of the WTC cycle. Virat Kohli & Co. also defeated England, South Africa and Bangladesh at property.
But India failed to win the summit clash as they had been outclassed by New Zealand in all departments.
The Board of Handle for Cricket in India (BCCI) President Sourav Ganguly, meanwhile, praised India for defeating Australia in the Border Gavaskar Trophy 2021 even when their essential players had been missing.
“I assume their [series] win against Australia was the highlight for me. Australia is generally a powerful group, and beating them in at property was a enormous [achievement] by India. With essential players missing out, it was enormous that their replacements delivered. India has played regularly properly and that is why they are in the finals,” Ganguly told The Week Magazine in an interview.
Although Ravi Shastri, Yuvraj Singh had opined that a 1-off finale wasn’t adequate to judge the calibre of the leading two sides, Ganguly felt that it was also early to comment on this subject.
“It is also early to say. Let this season finish. The ICC will appear at a lot of issues. At this stage, I would rather wait just before saying something,” he mentioned.
The 48-year-old additional added that the thought of conducting a Test tournament was a very good notion as it is regarded as the purest type of cricket.
“It is a pretty very good notion for positive. I assume Test cricket is the largest and strongest type of cricket and it need to have a final. As far as the 1-off Test as a final is concerned, it is the very first [edition]. Factors will be looked into for the future. The ICC will get feedback from all stakeholders,” Ganguly concluded.
