Australian cricket legend Watson has run his eye over prospective ICC World Test Championship finalists, with the cycle seeming to achieve a great conclusion.
Speaking to Sanjana Ganesan on The ICC Review, Watson praised the ICC World Test Championship, with consequence and recreation currently in nearly every match-up.
So far, competition across the 2021-2023 cycle has seen a reasonable level of parity among the 9 groups. Because the business finish approaches, each match impacts the table in an exceedingly meaningful manner.
The final of the continuing cycle is about to compete next year; however, the race for the highest 2 spots within the league table is heating up. South Africa and Australia occupy the qualification spots currently; however, they face some powerful series to carry on to those positions.
When asked to predict the 2 finalists, Watson said that the way I see it, it’s getting exhausting for South Africa and Australia not to build it.
He said that they are both enjoying specialized cricket. He added that Australia competes for sensible cricket except for that last Test match against Sri Lanka, wherever they got swept in turning conditions within the previous innings.
Watson added that you would ne’er discount Bharat and Pakistan, as they’ve got many match winners outside their home countries.
He said that two teams, I’d be shocked if they don’t return knock on the door leading into the final. Keeping an eye on the competition, there’s a component of envy for Watson, with the expert all-rounder 59-Test appearances wailing the late temporal arrangement of the WTC’s introduction.
Watson said yeah, I want I did (play within the WTC) even in my enjoying days, in Test cricket, there was tons of observing the ICC World Test Championship coming back into play, and it took way too long to be held into place, and sadly, I disregarded on that.
He said that I used to be lucky to play a ‘Super Test’ in 2005, Australia against a World XI, that was one thing special audit was one of the primary Test matches I compete.
He added that it was special to be a part of; however, this can be even a lot of, thus, to be ready to win an ICC event and it being Test cricket. He said that for this enjoying group, Test cricketers worldwide, it’s special to understand there’s a culmination coming with a WTC final.
