World Test Championship will be Like World Cup: Michael Clarke

first_imgNew Delhi: Former Australia captain Michael Clarke said that the World Test Championship will do to Test cricket what the World Cup does for the sport in general. The Championship starts with the Ashes as Australia take on England starting on August 1 and Clarke expects a tough series between “two very good teams”.“I think it’s great for Test cricket. The top two teams playing in something like the World Cup final at Lord’s in 12 months (24 months) time. It’s a little bit like the World Cup (in the way that) no matter where you are ranked in the ICC standings, the team that wins the World Cup is I think seen as the best team in the world. With Test cricket it will be the same, whoever wins the championship is the best team in the world,” Clarke said on the sidelines of the MedParliament, where the 38-year-old shared his journey and insights in healthcare entrepreneurship.
