When is the ICC World Test Championship Final taking place?
The final of the ICC World Test Championship will kick off on June 18, 2021, and wraps up on June 23, 2021, with play getting underway at 7:30pm AEST each day, meaning it’ll be a few late nights for Aussie cricket fans.
Who will come out on top – India or New Zealand?
The two teams are sitting atop the rankings for good reason – they have had a dominant past year. Being the first team to qualify for the final, New Zealand has had arguably their best ever year of cricket, with Kane Williamson leading the Blackcaps through a challenging run of fixtures, beating India, the West, Indies, and Pakistan without losing a single test. This will stay in the back of Indian minds, with a fresh series loss potentially sapping the hopes of the subcontinent.
As for a definitive result – it’s hard to pick, but we’re giving the Kiwis the edge as they come off the back of a series win in England. Fatigue may be a factor, but the thrill of such a historic win will be a 12th man for New Zealand.
