Fans’ reaction to Shastri’s statement
Can’t decide the best team from one match.
After the match, Team India captain Virat Kohli said that the best Test team in the world should not be decided on the basis of one final, but through the ‘best of three final’.
Kohli said in the post-match press conference, ‘I am not in favor that the best Test team in the world should be determined by a final match. Has the potential to return. It’s not like playing well for two days and then suddenly you are not a good Test team. I do not belive it.’
At the same time, after the victory, New Zealand team captain Kane Williamson said, ‘It is a special feeling. I want to thank Virat and the Indian team. The game shown by our team is commendable. This is the first time we have won the World Cup title. All players deserve praise. It will be remembered for a long time.
