Why did Pat Cummins cut off Rohit Sharma’s talk? (PC-PTI)
New Delhi. Defeat, defeat and only defeat…Team India Has just got a defeat in the ICC tournament. The last time the Indian cricket team won the Champions Trophy was in the year 2013 and since then it has missed the chance to win 9 ICC tournaments. He also had to face defeat in the final of the World Test Championship 2021-23 and after this failure, Rohit Sharma raised questions on the ICC itself. Rohit said that it is not right to decide the winner of the tournament which has been going on for 2 years with just one match. But this talk of Rohit was completely denied by Australian captain Pat Cummins.
After becoming the champion, Pat Cummins said that there is no harm in having a final of the World Test Championship. Giving the example of Olympics, he said that even there only one race wins the gold medal. There are finals in AFL, NRL as well. This is the game.
Has Pat Cummins forgotten Australia’s best-of-three final?
Although Pat Cummins is giving the example of Olympics after winning the World Test Championship, but perhaps he forgot that in his own country the best of three finals were held for a triangular ODI series. Australia used to organize Best of Three instead of conducting a final in the Triangular Series held at their home. His thinking behind this was that poor performance in just one match should not be the measure of the winner of the final. The best three matches of both the teams should decide the champion. But now Pat Cummins is justifying the final of just one match for a big tournament like the World Test Championship.
Why a final is not appropriate in the World Test Championship?
The formula of a final match in the World Test Championship is probably also a bit strange because this tournament is not played simultaneously. There are also many ODI series, T20 series between this tournament. Team India played IPL match for 2 months before the final match. Apparently after playing T20 format for 2 months, now he will not be able to come in the zone of Test cricket in such a short time. The same happened with Team India this time. As a result, Team India got defeated. By the way, here the players of BCCI and Team India will also have to look into their neck because the reason for the defeat in the final of the World Test Championship is the IPL somewhere apart from the bad game.
