The Indian team will play in the final of the first World Cup from June 18 to 22 in Southampton against New Zealand. They grow kohliThe men qualified for the final, thanks to the fact that they were at the top of the table in the group stage, which took place according to the cycle 2019-2021.
The final will consist of only one game. However, former Indian captain Kapil Dev believes that the ICC should introduce the concept of the “best of three” finals for the tournament.
“I would prefer more than one match to decide such an important title. Of course, nowadays it’s not a big deal to prepare for a match. It helps to play a few games under these conditions, but that can’t be an excuse, “Kapil told Midday.
“This is something that the ICC has done to promote test matches. I’m sure there will be good cricket for the public. I think the finals of three tests would be great. “
Earlier this week, it was reported that the ICC was considering a sixth day as a back-up day if 30 hours were not completed during the normal five-day course in the final.
The title clash, which was originally scheduled to take place at Lord’s, was moved to Southampton in February. Kapil, who became India’s first captain to lift the World Cup trophy on the Lord’s balcony in 1983, said the historic stadium would be a “better place”.
“Maybe Lord’s will have a better place than Rose Bowl because the pitch has a great history. Even Manchester [Old Trafford] it would be a good choice, but there is something in the celebration of victory at Lord’s, “said Capil.
