New Zealand lost to England in the World Test Championship (WTC) at Lord’s two years ago. Because he had hit fewer boundaries even after 50 overs and then the super over. On Wednesday, New Zealand finally won the World Test Championship (WTC) final under the leadership of Kane Williamson. In which he played an unbeaten 52 on a pitch in the first innings. Which went well for the bowlers after getting wet in rain for two days.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson on Wednesday (June 23) after losing successive one-day finals. Expressed both relief and satisfaction after defeating India by eight wickets in the inaugural World Test Championship (WCT) final on Wednesday (June 23). Australia defeated the New Zealanders at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 2015. When they qualified for the finals after losing six semi-finals.
It’s definitely a slightly different feeling to be on the right side of the result. The first semi-final was one-sided. The second was pretty interesting, Williamson said at a news conference.
An unbeaten 96-run winning partnership by Williamson and New Zealand’s highest Test run scorer Ross Taylor was finally compiled. Who has worked hard after falling in quick succession to opener Tom Latham and Devon Conway off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin.
Kyle Jamieson is a New Zealand fast bowler. Who has made quite an impact since his Test debut against India last year. He was adjudged man of the match after taking five wickets for 31 runs in India’s first innings and two wickets for 30 runs in the second plus.
Importantly, he dismissed Virat Kohli in both the innings. And the game turned decisively in New Zealand’s favor. Then the Indian captain was dismissed for 13 in the first hour of the game on the sixth day of Wednesday.
Kohli admitted that New Zealand are the better team. But at the same time he also said this. That he is not the only side favoring the five-day final. “It should be a test of character in three Test matches. That gives you the ability to come back in the series,” he added.
