The iconic Lord’s Stadium in England may host the second WTC final next year in June.

ICC wanted to host the inaugural WTC final at Lord’s as well but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the idea was dropped.

Instead, the final was played at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton between India and New Zealand.

New Zealand emerged victorious in the tournament defeating India comfortably.

ICC chairman, Greg Barclay says that the World Test Championship has certainly upped the standards of Test cricket.

He, however, also mentioned that some of the associates and smaller nations will have to sacrifice the amount of Test cricket that they will play in an entire year.

Barclay also revealed that he sees the potential of Test cricket in the next 10-15 years’ time as well.

So, Test cricket is here to stay and will never be out of relevance in the future.

The venue for the next WTC final will be announced at ICC’s next Annual General Meeting next month.

Barclay also commented that India, Australia and England will continue to play Test cricket the way are now.
