Cricket fans are eager to find out who will win the inaugural World Test Championship as only one day is left for the title match.
The final of the World Test Championship is to be held from June 18 to 22. If the match is a draw or a tie, both the teams will be declared joint winners.
There is a lot of confusion in front of Indian captain Virat Kohli regarding the playing XI. Team India's batting order looks almost confirmed, but Virat will have to think a lot about the bowling attack. The Indian team management is in the mood to include Mohammad Siraj in the playing XI but it will not be easy to ignore the experience of Ishant Sharma.
According to Weather Channel and AccuWeather, both have predicted rain in the final between India and New Zealand. According to AccuWeather, 61 per cent rain is expected on the first day of the World Test Championship final. On the other hand, the Weather Channel has predicted 90 percent rain.
England receives a lot of rain during the month of June. It has also been seen in Southampton that rain has been disrupted in many matches. In such a situation, keeping this in mind, the ICC has kept a reserve day for the WTC final match.
