Virat Kohli said that if there is a Test series, then only three Tests shows which team has the ability to return. It doesn’t happen that you play well for two days and then suddenly you are not a good Test team. I do not belive it.
Echoing head coach Ravi Shastri, Indian captain Virat Kohli said the best Test team in the world should not be judged on the basis of one final, but by the ‘best of three finals’.
India won the series by coming back from trails against Australia and England, but New Zealand defeated them by 8 wickets in the World Test Championship final.
Kohli said in the post-match press conference, ‘I am not in favor of determining the best Test team in the world by a final match.’
He also said that the defeat to New Zealand does not accurately depict the achievements of his team in two years. “We are not bothered by this result. We have done well in the last three-four years. This match does not depict our ability and ability properly.
The three-match final will be difficult for the ICC in the busy international calendar. Kohli said that people should remember that it was a tough series, not just a final.
He said, ‘This should be discussed. Not because we couldn’t win, but for Test cricket this saga should be memorable.
