On June 11 at The Oval in London, Team India suffered a humiliating 209-run defeat to Pat Cummins-led Australia in the World Test Championship (WTC) final. The post-match press conference of India skipper Rohit Sharma sparked debates on social media. Rohit discussed his team’s failure during the one-off Test, the scheduling of the final, and the limited use of technology for important umpiring decisions.
“I would prefer a best-of-three final for the World Test Championship as it would be ideal to compete over 3 Tests after all the hard work, over 2 years, in reaching the final. However, we need to find a window for that. It would be ideal if there are 3 Tests in the next cycle. June is not the only month to play the WTC final. It could be played anywhere in the world, not just in England,” Rohit Sharma said during the post-match press conference.
Rohit hit the ICC directly: Latif
“He asked the ICC directly. ‘Why in June?’ I had said the same thing earlier. And why only in England? Who was he telling all this to? ICC, of course,” Latif said on his official YouTube channel.
“On Shubman Gill’s catch, he talked about the lack of camera angles. He hit the ICC directly. Behind the scenes, it’s ICC vs BCCI. The 38.5 percent increase that you read about (report that BCCI will receive 38.5 percent of ICC’s earnings)… there’s no ICC release on that. It was a report on a website. Who wrote that? There is conflict of interest,” Latif added.
