Test cricket, the longest format in cricket, has never had an ICC tournament. The championship was launched to promote ICC Test cricket, which hosts the World Cup in limited overs formats, and to attract more teams to the Tests. Now that it has reached its climax, Indian spinner R Ashwin has come out with a response to the situation in England.
‘Test cricket is the highest format of cricket. It is a big test of a cricketer’s ability and ability. Cricketers have long wanted a venue like the World Test Championship. I’m looking forward to a very well planned New Zealand team here. They come here after playing two Tests. They will have its advantage no matter what. The pitches in England have the most influence on the clouds. So we need to adapt to the situation quickly. We have never played Test cricket in a neutral venue, ”said Ashwin.
Cricket fans around the world are waiting to see what happens on the pitches that support England’s pace. The BCCI has sent a strong 24-man squad to England for the Test Championship final and the subsequent Test series against England. It includes four spinners – R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Akshar Patel and Washington Sunder. Ashwin and Jadeja are experienced players who have played in England. Both are good batsmen. That is why playing 11 is the main consideration for both of them. Axar or Sundar will only get a chance if he is injured. Ashwin has done well on the recent tour of Australia and the tour of England to India.
