Indian captain Virat Kohli names the biggest ICC tournament
Indian captain Virat Kohli is busy preparing for the next assignment against New Zealand for a two-match Test series against New Zealand and the first match is scheduled to be played at Basin Reserve cricket ground in Wellington. Ahead of the match, Virat Kohli has assured that he would play all the three formats of the game for at least three more years and after which, he would reconsider his workload.
Virat Kohli, who will turn 32 this year has taken some breaks with his deputy Rohit Sharma leading the side in his absence. The captain admitted that it has indeed helped him manage his workload.
“It’s not that the players are not thinking about it all the time. We do choose to take a lot more breaks individually even though the schedule might not allow you to. Especially guys, who play all the formats. It’s not easy being captain, having that intensity in the practice sessions. It does take a toll on you. Periodic breaks seem to work pretty okay for me,” he was quoted as saying by India today.
The No.1 Test batsman was asked to give an opinion on the biggest ICC tournament and the Indian captain had no doubts in mind to pick the best ICC tournament. According to him, ICC World Test Championship is the biggest tournament organised by International Cricket Council.
The Indian captain went on to add saying that every cricket team wants to make it to the final at the iconic Lord’s stadium to win the championship. He said that his team would give everything in this championship to touch the pinnacle of success.
“I think World Test Championship as an ICC tournament should be right up there. All the other tournaments for me they start under that. This is probably the biggest of them all as every team wants to make it to the final at the Lord’s. We are no different,” Kohli added in a statement.
