India senior all-rounder R Ashwin has made it clear that Kohli has not asked for three such matches now. ‘I heard a lot of people say that Kohli wanted at least three matches for the final. But that is not true. He said that if there were three matches, the teams would understand the situation and get a chance to come back. “There is no requirement for three matches in the final,” Ashwin said on his YouTube channel.
There was only one match in the final. New Zealand, who played two Tests against England, were able to adapt quickly. But the Indian players did not get a warm-up match after the quarantine. Also, the landing after the break affected the performance. The loss of the toss and the adverse weather conditions affected India’s performance.
Ashwin said the defeat in the final was a disappointment for India and a disappointment for New Zealand. However, Ashwin said he hoped India would end its wait for the ICC title soon. ‘The fans are very disappointed with India’s defeat. When cricket resumed after the lockdown, millions of people in India were waiting for the good news. But that did not happen. “I hope to win the ICC title soon,” he added.
India are currently preparing for the England series. The five-match Test series is between India and England. The England series is a matter of survival for both India and captain Virat Kohli.
