Australia defeated India by 209 runs.
After the World Test Championship final at The Oval, Indian captain Rohit Sharma suggested a three-match Test series to determine the winner of the competition. But Australian Pat Cummins dismissed the idea, believing the pacemaker would be perfectly fine for a one-off match. He used the Olympics as an example, where racers were given only one chance to win a gold medal.
India suffered an embarrassing defeat, especially as Australia won the match by 209 runs. There was a faint hope that the Indian team would do something special on day five, but the Australian pacesetters stopped India’s streak and Rohit Sharma’s team finally made it through the morning session. collapsed. Afterwards, Rohit thought it would be unfair to judge the team after two years of hard work and suggested a three-game series.
“We would like to play a series of 3 test matches for the WTC Finals. We worked hard and fought hard but we only managed one match. I think is ideal,” Rohit said at a press conference.
“I think you’ll be fine. No worries. Ideally, 50 consecutive games would be best, but at the Olympics, you need one race to win a gold medal. The AFL and NRL seasons have playoffs. It’s a sport,” Cummins said when asked about Rohit’s proposal.
We have adjusted well and that is what makes it so satisfying: Cummins
Australia became the first nation to win all three of his ODI, T20 and Test World Championships and in the final Cummins was thrilled after Australia’s stunning win. After the match, the 30-year-old said the win was very special to him as they adapted well to the conditions in England.
“A win here, but we have to win all over the world to reach the final.” I think that cycle consisted of 20 friendly matches. I think we only lost maybe 3 or 4 and the guys out of 20 were always great. We adjusted well and we’re very happy with it,” Cummins said.
