After T20 World Cup triumph, Jay Shah sets sight on World Test Championship, Champions Trophy

Shah claimed that the senior players of the team will all be present to ensure India give themselves every chance to lift those trophies.

India are surely not satisfied by just winning the T20 World Cup a few days ago. BCCI secretary Jay Shah has now set new goals for the national team. Shah, who was present in Barbados during the final, has asked the team to set their sights on World Test Championship and Champions Trophy, stressing that the senior players will be present during those tournaments.

WTC final, CT next target

The way this team is progressing, our target is to win the World Test Championship final and Champions Trophy. There will be a similar squad playing there. The seniors will be there,” Shah was quoted as saying by PTI.

It was the same captain last year and here in Barbados. We won all games except the final in 2023 as Australia played better. This time we worked even harder and played better to win the title. If you look at other teams, experience counts. From Rohit to Virat, all excelled. Experience makes a lot of difference, in World Cups you can’t experiment much also. A good player knows when to say goodbye to the game, we saw that yesterday. You look at Rohit’s strike rate, it is better than a lot of young players,” Shah said.
