The final of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship (WTC) will now be played out from June 18 to 22 with June 23 acting as a reserve day. The decider was originally scheduled to be held from June 10 to 14 at the Lord’s Cricket Ground.

ANI has reliably learnt that it was done keeping in mind the proximity between the WTC final and the final of the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League — dates yet to be officially announced — and any quarantine period that players might have to go through with an eye on the coronavirus pandemic. It is almost certain that India will be a part of the final.

Currently, India and New Zealand are placed at the top two spots in the WTC standings. Virat Kohli’s side has 430 points after playing five series, while New Zealand has 420 points after playing five series.

India will be playing one more series against England as part of WTC and Australia, who is placed at the third spot, will be taking on South Africa. Australia would be required to win against South Africa if Tim Paine and his boys wish to make it to the finals of WTC.

Last year, the ICC had decided to change the point-rating system of WTC due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The WTC table has now been revised to rank teams based on the percentage of points earned from the series played, meaning teams are ranked in order of percentage of points earned.
