World Test C’ship pinnacle of all ICC events, says Virat Kohli

Wellington, Feb 19 (GCSports) Ahead of two match test series against New Zealand, India captain Virat Kohli on Wednesday rated the ICC World Test Championship as the pinnacle of all global tournaments.
India have won each of their seven games in the World Test Championship so far, and currently occupy the top position in the standings with 360 points.
Kohli hopes India can maintain that glorious run and book a spot in the final, which will be played at Lord’s next year.
“I think Test Championship, as an ICC tournament, should be right up there. All the other tournaments, for me, start under that. This is going to be the biggest of them all. Every team wants to make it to the final at Lord’s. And we are not any different. We want those points and make sure that we qualify as early as we can, and be in that frame of mind to hopefully win that, ‘ Virat said.
The 31-year-old also mentioned that World Test Championship has added a context to the traditional format making the contests more exciting with points on offer.
“It has made Test cricket more exciting and that’s something we have experienced as a side although we haven’t had too many games away from home. Couple of games in the West Indies and we haven’t had a tour of Australia as a part of Test Championship. This is our first away tour since the start of home season,” said Indian captain.
The skipper expects that the two-Test series will be as intense as the recent series between England and South Africa.
