Team India creates history, reaches WTC finals for the second time in a row, will battle against Australia


The Indian team has created history by making it to the finals of the World Test Championship for the second time in a row. The last Test match of the series between India and Australia is currently being played in Ahmedabad, meanwhile, this good news has come from a match that started in New Zealand. The Test match between Sri Lanka and New Zealand has come to an end, with New Zealand winning by 2 wickets and with this, Team India has qualified for the WTC 2023 finals.

India will now face Australia for the World Test Championship, which has already qualified for the final. The match will be played from June 7 to 11 at The Oval in London, for which June 12 has also been reserved. Team India has entered the final of the World Test Championship for the second time in a row. Before this, he was defeated by New Zealand in the final.

India’s defeat in the Indore Test made the equation of the final of the World Test Championship interesting and Team India had to wait for some time for the final ticket. Australia’s place was confirmed by winning the Indore Test, but India’s dependence on the Sri Lanka-New Zealand Test match remained unchanged. Sri Lanka are currently playing a two-Test series in New Zealand, needing to win the series 2-2 to enter the final, but that has not happened.

In the first innings of this Test played in Christchurch, Sri Lanka scored a huge score of 355 runs, in response to which New Zealand scored 373 runs in the first innings. Sri Lanka set New Zealand a target of 285 runs to win, a target that was difficult to achieve on the last day. However, New Zealand took the match to the last over and eventually won.

Runners-up in the first edition of the World Test Championship, the Indian team has now reached the final for the second time in a row. This time the final match will be played from 7 June 2023, in which India will have to face the challenge of Australia. The Australian team had earlier won the indoor test and made it to the finals. Now the Rohit Sharma-led team India will be eyeing to create history. The final match will be played at the Oval Ground in London. In the final of the previous edition, Team India was defeated by New Zealand under the leadership of Virat Kohli. But this time it is New Zealand that has helped Team India to reach the final.

Because the fourth-placed Sri Lankan team still had one match left after that. If the Sri Lankan team had won both the matches of this series, the Indian team could have been out of the race for the finals. In such a situation, New Zealand has not only prevented Sri Lanka from winning, but has cleared the way for Team India to reach the final by foiling its plans.

What is the point table position?

India are currently second with 60.29 winouts and have qualified for the final. Meanwhile, third-placed South Africa (55.56%) and fourth-placed Sri Lanka have dropped out of the final race. Defending champions New Zealand’s team fared badly this time and finished in 8th place. At the same time, white ball cricket champions England finished fifth due to a poor performance in the opening round. Apart from this, Pakistan is ranked sixth and West Indies is ranked seventh. At the same time, the Bangladesh team was at the last i.e. 9th position.
