WTC Final: The venue of the final of the World Test Championship 2023 has been changed. The historic Oval Cricket Ground has been given the host of the upcoming World Test Championship final. The ICC believes that the Oval Cricket Ground environment will be suitable for hosting the final. However, it is not yet clear which two teams will face in the final. But if you look at the points table of the World Test Championship so far, then the chances of Australia reaching the final seem high.

What did the ICC chief say

ICC Chief Executive Geoff Allardyce said, “We are delighted that the final of next year’s ICC World Test Championship will be held at The Oval, the Oval has a long and wonderful history.”

The ICC chief also said that “the final of the World Test Championship 2025 will be played at Lord’s, making it the first time the WTC final will be played at the historic ground at Lord’s.” The WTC 2021 final was shifted from Lord’s to Southampton due to Kovid-19. Due to the hotel being inside the grounds of Southampton, the 2021 final was organized there.

The ICC chief further said that “Last year’s final was played between New Zealand and India in Southampton and I am sure fans around the world will be looking forward to the next WTC final at the Oval. From the ICC, I would like to thank the England and Wales Cricket Board, Surrey County Cricket Club and Marylebone Cricket Club for their support.”

Know what is the status of WTC Points Table

If we look at the WTC points table after the result of the last test match played between England and South Africa, Australia is on top with 70 PTC percent. South Africa is second with 60 per cent, Sri Lanka is third with 53.33 per cent and India is fourth with 52.08 after the loss to England. Pakistan is at the fifth position with 51.85 points. West Indies are at the sixth position in this tally. On the other hand, England are seventh with 38.6 and defending champions New Zealand (25.93) 8th and Bangladesh (13.33) are 9th.
