After several washes and numerous rain interventions in the opening final of the World Test Championship (WTC) between India and New Zealand, the commentator turned into cricket, Aakash Chopra asked for an extra day.
The tent clash already has a spare day, but Chopra wants to see an extra day for both teams to play the full odds of 450 overs at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton. While the first and fourth days of the WTC final were washed away, the second and third days were affected by bad light.
“We added the 6th day. Now we are very happy to have the 6th day. So we can make up for some of the time lost. Why don’t we have a rule that plays 450 overs? Whether it takes the 6th day or something. part of the 7th day, but take those 450 overs, I’m not saying to play a 10-day test, just play 450 overs.
“If you still don’t get a result, then go hand in hand, saying that both teams are equally good. But why not go that far after you’ve gotten this far in 2 years and basically 144 years?” Chopra told Star Sports.
The former discoverer of India also said that New Zealand has won in the test of the same name, after it has already taken out 10 piggy banks.
The fifth day of the WTC final also began after an hour’s delay due to rain. Jasprit Bumrah started the day with the first, as fans witnessed the first for more than 40 hours in the test, hated by the rain.
“The more losses we lose, India will move away from getting a result in their favor. The more time we lose,” Chopra said.
“New Zealand is currently in the driver’s seat. To win a test match, you have to take 20 straps. New Zealand has already taken 10, India needs 18. So you know they are in the driver’s seat. The more time you waste “It’s better for the New Zealand team,” he said.
