The former England batsman’s reaction came as bad weather significantly affected the final
Former England captain Kevin Pietersen has warned England not to hold solo matches as important as the World Test Championship. The former England batsman’s reaction came as bad weather significantly affected the final. Only close to 140 overs were played in the final at the end of four days, compared to the average of 360 overs to be played.
“It hurts to say this, but so many important solo matches should not be played in the UK.” Peterson tweeted against the ICC selection of the Hampshire Bowl in Southampton for the first final.
Peterson said such important matches, such as the finals, should be held in places like Dubai, which are less prone to weather problems.

“If I were you, I would have chosen Dubai as the venue for a solo match like the WTC final. Neutral venue, stunning stadium, solid weather, excellent training facilities, a tourist center! The ICC office is next to the stadium, ”Peterson said on Twitter.
But former India opener Virender Sehwag tweeted a bit of a joke. The timing of the Indian batsmen and the ICC was not right, ”Sehwag said.
