India Vs England: Who will win the first ever WTC trophy?
In July 2019, the World Test Championship began with the start of Ashes on 1st August 2019. Since then it has become one of the most anticipated championships in the world. With the finals between India & New Zealand on 18th June, we will come to know who overpowers whom & we will witness the end of the first ever World Test Championship.
Back in 2019, because of the T20 format, the interest in Test Cricket was declining & it was becoming difficult for ICC to find a solution for the same. This when ICC came with a plan for WTC & it has worked really well. As per some studies, cricket fans are becoming more interested in the format again & its not only about fans, even players are taking Test Cricket as the basis of selection in their national team.
We have reached the end of the tournament & on 18th June we will witness the moment of truth two of the most powerful teams in test cricket will collide for the trophy.
Cricket pundits have said that New Zealand will have a slight advantage as they are facing England in two test match series before the finals. They will be comfortable & confident with the wicket, weather & playing conditions as the finals will be held at Southampton.
On the other hand, India has emerged as the strongest team in the whole series & they will be high with confidence & motivated to win the trophy. With New Zealand, they will have the hunger to beat India & win the trophy & take Number 1 position at the ICC’s test point table & with India, they will be motivated to keep the numero uno position with them & win the trophy & there by proving the critics wrong.
Since two of the top teams are colliding, it is obviously difficult to predict the winner but what can be predicted is that the finals will be a thrilling battle.
