Team India To Face Australia In The ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 Final At The Oval. Rohit Sharma-led Team India has secured their place in the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 final at The Oval starting on June 7, after Kane Williamson-led New Zealand’s thrilling win over Sri Lanka.

New Zealand’s win eventually means that, no matter what will be the result of Ahmedabad’s test. Sri Lanka needed a whitewash on New Zealand to make the WTC final, but their dramatic loss in the first test against NZ has resulted in India making the WTC 2023 final instead.
