Cricket legends and former players from India and around the world congratulated Australia on their first ICC World Test Champions (WTC) triumph. Australia were declared WTC Champions after a 209-run victory at The Oval, handing India their second defeat in two WTC Finals. “Take a look at what it means to this particular group of players. Two long and difficult years of work, competing and winning Test matches all across the world, have culminated in this today. “It’s a disappointment for India, but they’ve been completely outplayed here at The Oval by a very good Australian cricket team,” former skipper Ricky Ponting told ICC after Australia’s victory.
Ponting and Hayden were not the only big names to react, with a number of Indian cricket luminaries congratulating Australia on social media.
“There’s something about Australia…they come with a built-in software of champions. Congratulations on winning another tournament! Tough luck for our #TeamIndia,” Dinesh Karthik tweeted.
After the new World Test Champions were announced, others, including New Zealand’s Devon Conway, who was one of the winners the last time the final was played in England, also posted on social media.
