The countdown to the final of the World Test Championships has begun. The final match between India and New Zealand will be played in Southampton from 18 to 22 June. Many former veterans believe that the Kiwis will benefit from playing a two-match Test series before the WTC final against England. However, former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has a different opinion. Gavaskar has said that if New Zealand lose both their Test series against England, their morale will plummet significantly and India could benefit.

Gavaskar wrote in an article for The Telegram, “Some say that playing two Test matches before the WTC final is a big plus for the Kiwis and helps them adapt to the conditions and get the match ready.” The flip side of playing two Tests is that New Zealand may lose both of these matches and their morale when taking the field against India may hurt or swallow some of their key players at the moment.
