Great chance for Kohli to end ICC trophy drought: Parthiv

The India captain has led his country in two ICC events - the Champions Trophy in 2017 and the World Cup in 2019 - falling short in both events

Former India wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel reckons the World Test Championship (WTC) final is a great chance for Virat Kohli to end ICC title drought. Under Kohli, India reached the final of the ICC Champions Trophy in 2017, which they lost by 180 runs. In the 2019 World Cup, the Kohli-led side crashed out in the semi-final stage at the hands of New Zealand.

"This is the ultimate format of cricket. Everyone wants to become a Test player and now there's a World Cup of Test Championship," Parthiv said on Star Sports.

"Now there is a chance for Virat Kohli - who has been eluded from the ICC trophy, he has led India in a couple of ICC tournaments, but this is big. Winning Test championship would be a big feather in his cap," he added.

India take on New Zealand in the WTC final in Southampton from June 18. After the one-off match, India face England in the five-match Test series, scheduled to begin on August 4. 

The ICC recently had announced the playing conditions of the match., one of which was a provision for a reserve day. Also, if the match ends in a draw the trophy will be shared by both teams, which is something that has received a mixed response so far.

India will begin their individual training after serving three-day mandatory quarantine after arriving in England on June 3.
