According to reports, the World Test Championship (WTC) final is likely to begin on June 7 at The Oval in London, England

The second edition of the tournament is known as the World Test Championship (WTC). The final is said to begin on June 7 at The Oval.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has yet to confirm the final dates, according to a Cricbuzz report; however, it is believed that a reserve day will be available, similar to the previous edition.

The most important battle for glory in the longest format is dangerously close to the tentative date for the IPL 2023 final, which is expected to end on May 28 or June 4.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), according to the report, intends to kick off the 16th edition of the competition on either March 31 or April 1, with the latter being the preferred date.
The Gujarat Titans (GT), the defending champions, are expected to play their first match in Ahmedabad due to the IPL returning to a home-and-away format beginning next season.

The final dates for the upcoming cash-rich league have not yet been set, but the short time between the IPL and World Test Championship (WTC) finals raises questions about the players’ fitness and the ever-present threat of injury.

According to the recently released Future Tours Programme (FTP), the IPL has utilized a dedicated two-and-a-half-month window. It is important to note this.

If Indian players make it to the WTC final, they will have to play four Tests and three One-Day Internationals against Australia in the February-March window. The players will have a 10-day break to regroup and refuel during the home series, which is scheduled to conclude on March 22.

Team India is still in the running to make the WTC final. The Men in Blue are fourth in the WTC table, behind Sri Lanka, South Africa, and Australia.

India is preparing for their final away series, which will consist of two Tests against Bangladesh, before playing four Tests at home against league leaders Australia.

They will be guaranteed a spot in the final for the second cycle in a row if they achieve optimal results in their remaining six games. New Zealand defeated Team India in the inaugural edition’s Southampton final in July 2021.
