India to be presented with test mace after Indore Test
After climbing to the number one spot in test matches, team India is all set to be presented with the Test mace after the completion of the ongoing third test at Indore. ICC CEO Dave Richardson will present the test mace to Indian skipper Virat Kohli once the third test, and the series comes to an end at Indore. A few weeks ago, Pakistan skipper Misbah Ul Haq was presented with the made at Lahore, when Pakistan got to the number one spot in test matches.
India however, has just been way too dominant in recent times. After a sparkling show in the Caribbean, where they won 2-0, the Virat Kohli-led unit was all over the Kiwis in the ongoing series. After a convincing victory in the first test at Kanpur, India wrapped up the second test within 4 days at Kolkata, to eventually get to the number one rank.
The third test too in all possibility seems to be going in India’s way, as their lead has swelled up thanks to some fine performances with the bat and ball. Below is the tweet by ICC, where the decision to hand over the mace to India was made public.

A key architect behind India’s series win was once again R. Ashwin. After the end of the third day’s play, where Ashwin bagged a six-wicket haul, the off-spinner opened up about the pitch and general conditions. “It was very important. It was a very, very difficult wicket to bowl on. “The way Shami and Umesh bowled in the morning, they never let go of the steam. Especially Umesh bowled very quick through the day. Hopefully, they can get some good returns in the second innings,” said Ashwin.
