ICC on Monday (March 8) announced that the final of the World Test Championship (WTC) final has been moved from the Lords to the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, England.

BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla told ANI. “Yes, the final will be played in Southampton keeping an eye on the COVID situation,”

India qualified for the final by defeating England 3-1 in the recently concluded Test series and will take on Kane Williamson’s New Zealand in June 2021. The kiwis had confirmed their place in the final after defeating West Indies 2-0 in December 2020.

However, India’s win over England ensured that they entered the final as the top team in the WTC standings. The qualification for the WTC final started in 2019 with nine Test-playing nations taking part in the two-year cycle.
