ICC WTC Final: Kevin Peterson slams ICC, advised not to host important game in the UK

ICC WTC Final: Kevin Peterson slams ICC, advised not to host important game in the UK.

ICC WTC Final: England’s former skipper Kevin Peterson on Monday stated that the “extremely important ICC games should not be held in the UK” following all the interruptions caused by consistent showers in the ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand.

The day one and day four of the all important summit clash between India and New Zealand got washed away due to rain and it seems like the trophy will be shared by both teams as the game might end without fetching a particular winner.

“It pains me to say it, but a ONE-OFF & incredibly important cricket game should NOT be played in the UK,” wrote Peterson in his tweet.

“If it was up to me, Dubai would always host a one-off match like this WTC game. Neutral venue, fabulous stadium, guaranteed weather, excellent training facilities and a travel hub! Oh, and ICC home is next to the stadium.”

On day 3 of the test, New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson rattled through the Indian batting lineup and scalped a fifer in the World Test Championship final. He picked up the wicket of Rohit Sharma (34 runs), Virat Kohli (44 runs), Rishabh Pant (4 runs), Ishant Sharma (4 runs) and Jasprit Bumrah (0 runs) to claim his fifth fifer in eight test matches.

On top of that, New Zealand openers Devon Conway and Tom Latham built a solid opening stand to put black caps in the driving seat. 

Conway, continuing his sensational form, smacked a half century and Latham scored 30 runs.

For India, Ravichandran Ashwin provided the initial breakthrough in a non-conductive surface. He picked up Tom Latham while Ishant Sharma picked the wicket of dangerous-looking Devon Conway.
