India’s New Jersey for WTC Finals
The inaugural World Test Championship(WTC) final is a big occasion for India and New Zealand — the finalists. The summit clash would take place in Southampton, England, and will commence on June 18, 2021.
The ICC too announced the playing conditions for the match. According to the same, both the teams will be declared joint winners if the match ends in a tie or a draw, and there would be no boundary count rule, as was the case in the 2019 World Cup.
Also, there would be a reserve ‘sixth’ day for the encounter, so that no play is lost due to the uncontrollable. While the BCCI has also come up with a match kit for the WTC final.

New Changes in WTC Finals
The final will also see the implementation of the following changes to international playing conditions that came into effect with the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League series between Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
Short Runs – The Third Umpire will automatically review any call of a ‘short run’ by the On-field Umpire and communicate the decision to the On-field Umpire prior to the next ball being bowled.
Player Reviews – The fielding captain or the dismissed batsman may confirm with the Umpire whether a genuine attempt has been made to play the ball prior to deciding whether to initiate a player review for LBW.
DRS Reviews – For LBW reviews, the height margin of the Wicket Zone has been lifted to the top of the stumps to ensure the same Umpire’s Call margin around the stumps for both height and width.
