Misbah bats for extending World Test Championship


Pakistan head coach Misbah-ul-Haq wants the International Cricket Council (ICC) to conduct the World Test Championship exactly the way it has been planned even if it means extending the duration of the event due to the disruption caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Misbah’s statement came amid reports that the ICC is considering splitting points for unplayed games in the championship cycle which was originally scheduled to end in June-July 2021 with the final in England.

“The Covid-19 situation has hit the World Test Championship series but I would still prefer to see the ICC complete the championship with all teams completing their scheduled matches,” Misbah said in an interview on the Cricket Baaz channel on YouTube, according to Press Trust of India.
