ICC WTC Final. India has reached the final of the World Test Championship. They played the staggering brand of cricket for the last two years and it’s fair to say that the hard work of that has paid off. They will lock horns with Australia in the summit clash at the Oval, England from June 7th to 11th. 

However, after that, they have a jam-packed schedule as they will tour to West Indies. And after that, the real show will begin as they will ply their trade in the Asia Cup and then the Cricket World Cup 2023.
