WTC Final Timing in India: The mercury is rising as the grand finale of the enduring World Test Championship is almost upon us. Countless speculations have already conceived, and they have been further verified by resounding permutations and combinations.
However, questions about the broadcast and the exact timing of the Test match as per Indian Standard time have been rife amongst Indian fans. That is exactly what we will like to clarify in this story, drawing a clear line between the fans and when exactly to block their calendar from when India takes the field at Southampton.
India will once again be taking the field in the longest format of the sport after a crushing victory over England that saw them stage a brilliant turnaround after trailing in the first Test. However, the emphatic win over the English army didn’t come without a debate as countless English pundits claimed that India could only win the fray given the alien nature of the pitch that was absolutely unsuitable for Test cricket.
New Zealand, on the contrary, is in the middle of a two-Test bilateral affair with the hosts of the WTC finale. They had a rollicking start to the Test match, thanks to a brilliant double-century from debutant Devon Conway that was followed by a clinical bowling display from their most experienced campaigner, Tim Southee.
However, England fought back strongly in the second innings, thanks to a disciplined bowling attack that was spearheaded by debutant, Ollie Robinson who has already been suspended, owing to a disputable past. After a see-saw encounter, both the teams had to share the spoils of war, thanks to the rain Gods playing spoilsport.
