India and New Zealand are set to clash in the final of the World Test Championship starting 18th June. This is arguably among the greatest and most anticipated Test matches in the 21st century. The team that wins will create history by becoming the first team to lift the World Test Championship trophy. The ICC introduced this tournament in 2019 to have a flagship event for the longest format as well like the ODI and T20 World Cups.
India and New Zealand finished at the first and second position respectively in the points table of WTC. The criteria for deciding the rank in WTC was changed midway with several games not getting completed due to the pandemic. Both teams will now be aiming for a win in an ICC event after a long gap. India last won an ICC trophy back in 2013 with a title in Champions Trophy. On the other hand, the Kiwi team was the winner of the Champions Trophy in 2000.
New Zealand are coming into this final with a dominating performance against England in the recent Test series. They won the two-match Test series by 1-0 after an 8-wicket victory in the second game. The Indian team played some intra-squad matches in England to acclimatize to the new conditions. They will be playing a five-match Test series against England later in August this year.
