Initially, ICC scheduled the iconic final of the inaugural Test tournament at the home of cricket ‘Lords’ however due to the deteriorating conditions it has been shifted to Ageas Bowl Stadium, Southampton.

The venue was finalised because of its five-star lodging facilities inside the stadium premises. The final will begin on 18th June between India and New Zealand.

“Yes, the final will be held at Ageas Bowl,” Ganguly replied to a query from PTI.

India reached the final of the iconic test tournament, after thrashing England by 3-1 in the home test series. Both England and India were in the contention race in the home test series.

According to the reports, Sourav Ganguly will be present in Southampton during the marquee clash between India and New Zealand in the final.

“I will go for the World Test Championship and hopefully we can get past New Zealand in the final. New Zealand will be there before us and they will play a couple of Test matches (against England),” Ganguly told ‘India Today’ channel.

Ganguly praised the Indian contingent to perform outstandingly in the last two test series. India conquered Australia by 2-1 in the four-game series while 3-1 against England.

It seems that Ganguly is impressed with the youngster’s performances in both series. The young guns came blazing in the Australia tour when all the key players got injured. Mohammad Siraj showed great composure and grit and so do Rishabh Pant.

Axar Patel in the recent series had a tremendous outing. Washington Sundar was also a key performer for the Indian outfit.
