- Pietersen has expressed displeasure over the venue of the final
Southampton: Amid rain ravages in the World Test Championship (WTC) final, former England captain Kevin Pietersen believes no cricket match of high importance should be held in Britain, infamous for its volatile weather. The ongoing final match between India and New Zealand is now heading towards a draw as only 140 overs have been played in it in the last four days.
‘Important matches should not be played in Britain.’
Questioning the International Cricket Council’s (ICC) decision to select Southampton for this important final, Pietersen said, “It pains me to say this but no very important cricket match should be played in the UK.” Pietersen believes that a match like the final should be played in Dubai where there is little chance of weather-related disruption.
‘Dubai picks host for final match’
The former England batsman said, ‘If I had to make a decision, I would choose Dubai as the host for a match like the WTC final. Natural venue, great stadium, good weather guaranteed, great practice facilities and perfect place to visit. And yes there is also the ICC Headquarters close to the stadium. Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag showed more wit in criticizing the ICC. Sehwag tweeted, ‘Batsman (batsman) also did not get the timing and the ICC too.’
