Virat Kohli Plays Down ICC World Test Championship Hype, Says It is A 'Distraction'

Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli said in Ahmedabad on Wednesday that the World Test Championship did not serve as 'extra motivation' for the Indian cricket team. India must beat or draw the fourth Test against England starting at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Motera on Thursday to enter the final of the WTC where they will meet New Zealand who have already qualified. Kohli said India were focused on winning every Test and things like the WTC were good for teams that had lost interest in the longer format of the game.
