- India lost in WTC final
- New Zealand beat India by 8 wickets in the final
- Indian team is being criticized after the loss
The Indian team’s dream of winning the first World Test Championship (WTC) title was shattered. The team led by Virat Kohli was defeated by New Zealand by 8 wickets in the final. Team India is getting a lot of criticism after losing the final and captain Virat Kohli’s captain is also under question. However, many former cricketers have also defended India. Recently, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly gave a statement in support of the team. At the same time, now the World Cup winning captain and former veteran cricketer Kapil Dev has come out in support of the Indian team.
Kapil Dev has said such a thing on the defeat of Team India, which will remove the displeasure of the Indian fans. He believes that reaching the final or semi-final of a tournament is a big success in itself. He said that the Indian team has won many matches in such conditions. In such a situation, it is not right to target the team on the basis of one match.
‘It is shown a hundred times as soon as there is a bad performance’
Kapil Dev said in a conversation with ‘Sports Yaari’, ‘Tell me one thing that the team is reaching semi-finals or finals every time. Isn’t that an achievement in itself? We start criticizing very quickly. You can’t win the trophy every time. You see how well the team played. If the team loses a match here or fails to win the World Cup semi-final, does it mean they are succumbing to pressure? No. It’s not like that. They (New Zealand) had a better day and they played better. We look at this very critically. The media shows it a hundred times as soon as there is a bad performance. It is said that these people cannot bear pressure, cannot take pressure. It’s not like this. We have won a lot of games under pressure.
Team India was on top of the table
Significantly, India played six series in the championship and entered the final after scoring 520 points. The Indian team topped the points table. At the same time, New Zealand played five series and scored 420 points. However, the New Zealand team was the first team to reach the final. The Test Championship started from August, 2019.
