The ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand, which was scheduled to be played at cricket’s most iconic venue Lords, will now take place in Southampton. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly confirmed the development to India Today on Monday.
However, there has been no confirmation by the international cricket governing body, ICC, in this regard. “I’m looking forward to attending the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand in Southampton,” Ganguly told India Today.
“Yeah, it is in Southampton. It was decided long time ago. Due to Covid and they [in Southampton] have the hotel absolutely close. When England resumed play after Covid, they had a lot of matches in Southampton due to the same reason,” the former India skipper added.
