With the World Test Championship Final just around the corner, cricket fans around the world are eagerly anticipating the clash between Australia and India. These two teams secured their place in the final by finishing at the top of the standings in the 2021-23 WTC cycle , with India holding the number one spot in the ICC Test rankings and Australia at number two. The match is set to take place at the Oval in London starting from June 7, with an extra reserve day in place in case of any disruption caused by rain.
According to recent information, the Indian squad would depart for London for the WTC final as soon as the IPL league stage concludes on May 21, most likely on May 23. At a later time, the players that participated in the IPL playoffs will go for the UK.
While both teams have already named their squads for the final and some of their players have already arrived in England to prepare for the big game, India’s plans have suffered a setback due to a few players sustaining injuries. As a result, these players are likely to miss the WTC final. Cricket enthusiasts are now keeping a close eye on the situation and hoping that the Indian team can bounce back from this setback and put up a great show in the final.
