WTC Final: India lost the final of the World Test Championship for the second time in a row. Australia beat India by 209 runs. After the defeat, Indian captain Rohit Sharma said that the team will keep its head high and fight for the next championship. In the post-match press conference, the captain lashed out at the ICC. He also made 3 big demands for the next final.

Captain Rohit says that the champion of this championship should not be decided by one match, but the final should be of 3 matches. He says that after 2 years of hard work, there should be 3 matches in the final, but there is a need to see the window too. Rohit said that if there are 3 Test matches in the next final, then it would be good.

Rohit's question on the final

He also raised questions on the final. Actually both the finals were played in England only in the month of June. Rohit says why should the final be held in June itself. The final can also be played in March. He also said that the final can be played anywhere. Why play in England only? Rohit is very disappointed with India's defeat. He said that winning the championship is more important than winning the series. He said that for 4 years the team worked hard for 2 finals. This is very disappointing.

India confined in the first session itself

Talking about the final, Australia had given India a target of 444 runs, in response to which India was reduced to 234 runs in the first session on the 5th day itself. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane struggled, but after their dismissal, India's hopes were completely over.

As long as Kohli and Rahane were standing at the crease, the hope of India's victory remained. Kohli scored 49 and Rahane scored 46 in the last innings. Indian batsmen disappointed a lot. Rohit Sharma, Cheteshwar Pujara got out after playing bad shots. At the same time, Shubman Gill's bat also could not run in the final.
