New Zealand Captain Kane Williamson is very excited to play in the inaugural World Test Championship finals as the tournament takes you back to the traditional format of the game.
New Zealand have already qualified for the finals of the World Test Championship with 70% points after Australia decided to indefinitely postpone their series against South Africa due to the fresh rise of COVID-19 cases in South Africa.
“It’s exciting to play in the final of the first (World) Test Championship. Adding Test Championship has added context to Test cricket and it has been a really interesting move,” Williamson, who has been in sublime form during all of New Zealand’s home series wins, told YouTube channel ‘Sports Today’.
“I think we have seen that more so in recent months, where sides have made players benefit from opportunities to advance themselves into the final and that’s really exciting,” the Black Caps skipper said.
In the finals, New Zealand will most likely face England or India who will face each other in a four test series starting from Friday. If India manages to clinch the series by winning two test matches then they would be meeting New Zealand at the Lord’s from June 18-22 while England would need to win at least three tests to reach the finals of WTC.
Australia could now play the finals of WTC if India vs. England series is a draw or India or England fails to win more than one or two tests respectively.
