The ICC had already confirmed that the final of the tournament would be played in England this time too. However, this time also the ICC has not been able to organize the title match of the World Test Championship at the historic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The final of the World Test Championship 2023 will be played at the Oval ground in London.
For your information, let us tell you that the first edition of the ICC World Test Championship was won by New Zealand. New Zealand defeated India in the title match. The match was played in June 2021 at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. However, this time the New Zealand team is not far away in the final race. India’s team has a chance to reach the final for the second consecutive season.

The ICC has also informed that although 5 days will be available for the final of the World Test Championship, which is from June 7 to 11, but the match can be played on the 12th day as well, as there will be a reserve day. If the match gets rained out in 90 overs or one day play then surely another day will be available to decide the result of the match.
