Jay Shah Targets World Test Championship, Champions Trophy After T20 World Cup Success

The Board of the Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Chairman, Jay Shah, said that their next target is to win the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 cycle and most importantly upcoming Champions Trophy hosted by Pakistan after India Team Victory in T20 World Cup 2024.


India is the third team after West Indies and England to win any T20 World Cup twice, Jay Shah asked the Blue Team to keep their sports and morale up on the remaining ICC tournaments.

“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,” Jay Shah was quoted as saying by the Press Trust of India (PTI).

He supported Rohit Sharma as captain, pointing out that although though India won the ODI World Cup in 2023, they lost the championship match. But this time, they managed to control their emotions and win the championship.

“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,” he added.

“From Rohit to Virat, all excelled. Experience makes a lot of difference, in World Cups, you can’t experiment much either. 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.”

Notably, India’s two most seasoned players, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, announced that they would only be playing Test and ODI cricket going forward.

India will have a fantastic opportunity to win the Champions Trophy again since it will be held in Pakistan the following year and will have Asian playing conditions.
