WTC Final Qualified Teams 2023: World Test Championship or WTC is a league competition run by ICC for Test format. The 2021-23 season will be the second edition of the tournament.
ICC introduced the WTC in 2019 where the final match was played on June 2021 in England between India and New Zealand where Kane Williamson led New Zealand bagged the title.
The ICC World Test Championship will be played between the top nine ranked teams where only two teams will enter the final game.
The league games of WTC were not considered as an ICC event and the broadcasting rights were with the host nation’s cricketing board itself and not with ICC. But unlike the league stage matches, the WTC finals were considered to be an ICC event.
