Legendary Indian cricketer, Sunil Gavaskar suggested that he would like to see the Indian men’s cricket team win both the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup. India hasn’t won any ICC trophy since 2013 and had also lost the final of the last cycle of the WTC against New Zealand. Team India is now on the cusp of reaching the WTC final this year and is considered to be the favorite for the World Cup later in the year.

Sunil Gavaskar further explained, “When you see a champion being felicitated, you also want to be one. And when your athletes are improving their personal bests, that is when you know everything is on the right track. There are two titles that I’d like the Indian men’s team to win — one is the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup is the other. There is, of course, the Asia Cup in between these two. If that comes back to India, nothing quite like it.”

Elaborating the same, Sunil Gavaskar said, “Australia has been a stumbling block for quite a while. The women’s team will need that one big win like the men’s squad in 2018-19 in Australia. If the Indian women manage to get past the Aussies and go on to win the World Cup, it will be a big boost.”
