Virat Kohli says he fancies India’s chances of doing well in the upcoming World Test Championship.
The first-ever World Test Championship gets underway this week with the first Ashes Test between England and Australia at Edgbaston on Thursday having the honour of also being the opening Test in the new ICC competition.
India are currently the top side in the ICC Test rankings and they get their WTC campaign underway in their two-match series against the West Indies, starting on August 22.
“We are awaiting the ICC World Test Championship with great enthusiasm as it adds context to the longest format of the game,” Kohli said.
“Test cricket is very challenging and coming out on top in the traditional form is always highly satisfying.
“The Indian team has done really well in recent years and will be fancying its chances in the championship.”
