‘The Ultimate Test’: ICC releases the official promo for WTC final between Australia and India
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has released the official promo for the highly anticipated World Test Championship 2023 (WTC) final between Australia and India, scheduled to be played at The Oval in London from June 7-to 11.
The Indian team will participate in the WTC final consecutively for the second time. In the inaugural edition of the prestigious tournament held from 2019-21, India squared off with New Zealand in the final. However, the result wasn’t in India’s favour as they lost to the summit clash at the Rose Bowl in Southampton on the reserve day.
In the second WTC cycle, Australia reached the final topping the points table with the win percentage of 66.67 in 19 matches followed by India at the second spot with 58.8% in 18 games.
The two teams met earlier this year in a four-match Test series, the Border Gavaskar Trophy, which hosts India won by 2-1 and confirmed their place to meet Australia once again in the final.
