‘World Test C’ship biggest of all events’

Indian team are at the top of World Test Championship table with 360 points whereas NZ are at sixth spot with 60 points Wellington: India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday put his weight behind the World Test Championship, terming it as the mother of all other ICC events. “I think World Test Championship as an ICC tournament should be right up there. All the other tournaments for me they start under that. This is probably the biggest of them all as every team wants to make it to the final at the Lord’s. We are no different. We are in that zone. We want to make sure that we qualify as soon as we can and be in that frame of mind to hopefully win that (championship),” said Kohli ahead of the India’s first Test against New Zealand at the Basin Reserve from Friday. Kohli said the Test Championship has made the longest format of the game more exciting, adding that India might be sitting on top of the points chart but they need to perform away from home to maintain that. “It has made Test cricket more exciting and that’s something we have experienced as a side although we haven’t had too many games away from home. Couple of games in the Windies and we haven’t had a tour of Australia as a part of Test Championship,” said Kohli.
