144-year-old Test cricket.
At present, the interest in Tests has waned among the audience. With the advent of limited-overs cricket in the field, the influence of Test cricket diminished and the stadiums were either empty or empty. But, the real fun in cricket lies in Test cricket. That is why the ICC World Test Championship has come to the fore. The ICC World Test Championship will undoubtedly be the latest in a long line of 144-year-old Test cricket.
WTC, which has been going on for two years, has finally reached the last digit. There have been no matches between some countries with the corona epidemic. The ICC included India and New Zealand in the final based on their winning percentage. Meanwhile, both India and New Zealand are in the bio and preparing for the final. The cricketing world is eagerly awaiting to see the battle between the captains leading the two great teams.
India won all the tournament trophies introduced by the ICC. Winning ODI, T20 World Cups, Champions Trophy titles and making his mark in the ICC Trophy. Virat Kohli is one of the captains who have given Team India more wins in Tests. Not only with the captaincy .. Virat’s aggression did not decrease in the game either. However, Virat did not win the ODI World Cup and Champions Trophy titles during his reign. Receiving this championship trophy and looking forward to making up for that shortfall. Curator Simon Lee estimates that the pitch will be suitable for pacers and spinners. With this, it seems that the Indian team will field three pacers. Tack is heard to be taking the same number of spinners as well.
Head to Head:
India and New Zealand have met 59 times in Tests. However, Team India is leading with 21 wins. The New Zealand team had 12 wins. The rest of the matches ended in a draw.
In ICC events.
India and New Zealand have met 5 times in ICC events. However, Team India has lost five times. With this, New Zealand will have the upper hand in ICC events.
