World Test Championship Final: India v New Zealand

When is the World Test Championship final?

The World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand will start on Friday, June 18, 2021 .

The first ball will be bowled at 9.30pm AEST .

It will be a five-day Test match with the last day of play scheduled for Tuesday, J une 22, 2021 .

However, there is a reserve day in place for Wednesday, June 23 in case a full five days of play cannot be completed.

The reserve day can only be used to make up lost time in the previous five days.

Where is the World Test Championship final?

The World Test Championship final will take place at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, England .

The match was originally slated to be played at Lord's Cricket Ground in London.

However, the decision was made to move the match to Southampton to ensure the two travelling teams could remain in a biosecure bubble for the match and minimise the overall risk and impact of COVID-19.

World Test Championship final squads

India Squad: Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane (vice-captain), Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Mayank Agarwal, Cheteshwar Pujara, Hanuma Vihari, Rishabh Pant (wicket-keeper), R. Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohd. Shami, Md. Siraj, Shardul Thakur, Umesh Yadav, KL Rahul (subject to fitness clearance), Wriddhiman Saha (wicket-keeper; subject to fitness clearance).

India announced a strong squad for the WTC final that will stay in the country for a five-Test series against India. KL Rahul and Wriddhiman Saha were both included in the squad but are awaiting fitness clearance.

New Zealand Squad: Tom Latham, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson (c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, Will Young, BJ Watling, Tom Blundell, Colin de Grandhomme, Kyle Jamieson, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Ajaz Patel, Trent Boult, Matt Henry

New Zealand has cut their squad down to 15 for the WTC final with the players involved in a two-Test series against England before the match.

Captain Kane Williamson missed the second England Test but is expected to be fit to return for the WTC final.

What happens if the World Test Championship final is a draw?
If the World Test Championship final ends in a draw, or a tie, then India and New Zealand will be crowned joint champions.

The playing conditions for the match allow for a reserve day to make up for any lost time during the five days of the Test.

The reserve day will only come into play if net playing time is lost. The net playing time for a test is 30 hours (or six hours a day).

good comeback by team India, still very likely a draw on the cards

barring a dramatic collapse by either of the sides.

good game, well matched sides.

What an anti climax! This Test should never have been played in UK. It should have been a best of three Test series. No wonder people are losing interest in Test cricket.

The rain definitely robbed this test of a definite result. 99% its a draw but as said above with either side having a batting collapse you never know
