New Zealand captain Kane Williamson will not be a fan of the points system used for the World Test Championship the place a staff will get a most of 120 points no matter the size of the collection.
As per points system, the worth for every Test match win within the upcoming two-match collection is 60 points per sport. However if it’s an Ashes collection, the worth of a Test match win is diminished to 24 as there are 5 matches.
“It’s an attention-grabbing one. I suppose there’s a component to it that isn’t truthful. But I suppose there may be an effort in bringing context to Test cricket which wasn’t there. So I imply the World Test Championship is a step in the proper path.
“It’s not good however I suppose after the primary yr or two of it, there’ll all the time be efforts to proceed to make it a greater product,” Williamson was guarded in his criticism on the eve of the primary Test.
But he did point out that points distribution system must have a relook.
“It is a step in the right direction but there are so many parts to it that some teams playing five, some teams playing two, the difference in countries, there is just heaps of different parts to it that don’t quite make the points of equal measure,” mentioned the Kiwi skipper.
“But we have all signed up for it and we are all keen to see how it unfolds and I’m sure it’ll develop over time,” he mentioned.
Williamson’s sentiment was additionally echoed by one in every of his senior teammates Ross Taylor, who was additionally essential of the points system.
“There are probably still a few teething issues to go with the points system but it has brought context to cricket which is probably what ICC were after. Is it the ideal situation at the moment? Probably not. But it’s a lot better now than it was before when we had nothing,” Taylor had mentioned throughout his interplay earlier this week. PTI KHS BS BS
