Team India continued their winless streak in ICC tournaments in the World Test Championship (WTC) Final for the 2021-23 cycle. They were hammered by a margin of 208 runs by Australia at the Kennington Oval in London, with the Aussies confirming the win on Day 5 (Sunday, June 11).

The Pat Cummins-led unit completely dominated proceedings against India, who looked lackluster in their execution of plans in the game. Batting first, the Aussies piled on 469 runs before restricting India to just 296.

Following Australia's memorable win, Indian captain Rohit Sharma addressed a press conference. Interestingly, he was quite vocal about his opinions during the discussion.When asked about the possible changes to the WTC final format, Rohit suggested that the summit clash should be a three-match affair instead of a one-off game.While some cricketing pundits were already calling for the change put forward by Rohit, there are multiple former cricketers who disagree with Rohit's remarks.Indian legend who rejected Rohit Sharma's suggestion to have a best-of-three finals to conclude the World Test Championship was none other than Sunil Gavaskar.The former Indian cricketer emphasised that there is only one final in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and no player requests a best-of-three outcome there. He believes that the same rationale applies for the WTC as well.

Strongly disagreeing with the prospect of a three-match final, Gavaskar deduced that anyone can have a bad day. However, if one can ask for a best-of-three finals, he feels they could also ask for a best-of-five finals as well.

India have now faced consecutive heartbreaks in the WTC final. Having fallen to New Zealand in a rain-affected encounter back in 2021, they have now suffered a heart-wrenching defeat against Australia this time around.

Harbhajan Singh, also sided with Sunil Gavaskar stating that one final is enough for a ETC final.

Talking to the media, Singh shared his thoughts on the best-of-three format for the WTC Final, and he stated, "I'd like to know what happens in 50-over World Cups. Do you want three finals as well? Would you say the same thing if it were New Zealand vs. England? You would not. You'll say no, one final is sufficient. So, one final in the 50-over World Cup and one final in the Test Championship. The tennis and football World Cups each have one final.

He shared his disagreement, asking if it is possible to play a 50-over match three times and what if the final is between strong teams like New Zealand and Australia, claiming that people will lose interest as it will affect the viewership and that one final is sufficient to decide the winner. He went on to give an example from other sports like tennis and football, saying that each of the big sports have one final to decide the winner. He concluded saying that no one will be waiting for the teams to finish three matches.
