'If they want to pursue with WTC final, a best of three would be ideal': India head coach Ravi Shastri.

India's head coach Ravi Shastri has batted for a best of three series to determine the winner of the World Test Championships (WTC) final.

Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli addressed the press before India left for the UK to play the WTC final vs. New Zealand in Southampton from June 18 and five games against England starting August 4. Addressing the current Indian men's cricket team, head coach Ravi Shastri and the former Indian captain Kapil Dev said there should be three final to decide the World Test Championship final winner.

Ravi Shastri said during the virtual interaction.

I think, in this long run of WTC, a best of three final would be ideal if they want to pursue a test championship for two and a half years of cricket. A three-match series as a climax would be a great idea.

But the team needs to finish the Future Tours Program (FTP) and then start everything all over again. So one-off is one-off, everyone has earned their stripes, and this is not a team that has suddenly blossomed overnight.

Virat Kohli also agrees with his coach and said

This WTC has a lot of value. Mainly it has to be the first of its kind. And in the most challenging format. All of us take pride in playing Test cricket, and the way we all have progressed on each side is an example of what Test cricket means to us. All of us as a unit has been part of the Test side for many years; this is like accumulating all the hard work time of the championship's duration this last five-six years. Since the time we all have started coming up on ranks and building up aside. We are delighted to play in the final.
