WTC Winner List: World Test Championship or WTC is the premier championship for Test cricket run by International Cricket Council (ICC) since 2019.
World Test Championship is a league competition that runs for a period of 2 years where the top 2 teams of the WTC points table will advance to the final game.
Though the WTC final is considered as an ICC event, its league games were not considered as an ICC event and the broadcasting rights were with the host nation’s cricketing board itself and not with ICC. The first tournament began with the 2019 Ashes series.
The inaugural WTC Final was played between India and New Zealand from 18 to 23 June 2021 at Rose Bowl, Southampton, England. Despite the opening and fourth day of the final being washed out by rain, the Kiwi managed to win in the final session of the reserve day and lifted the first World Test Championship trophy.
