India and New Zealand will take on each other in the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) final from June 18 to 22 in a match that could have a profound influence on cricket globally.
New Zealand are battle-hardened, thanks to their 1-0 series triumph over England. The second and final Test of the two-match series completed on Sunday at Edgbaston, where the Blackcaps registered a dominant eight-wicket win after a draw at Lord’s.
On the other hand, Team India has not played any competitive game since the end of March and just took the field for an intra-squad practice match while undergoing quarantine.
