Lords to Host WTC Final for 2023 and 2025
The ICC organises the Test Championship in order to restore Test cricket to its historical roots. At the conclusion of the initial cycle, the second cycle commenced. The preliminary round final took place at Southampton. Lords cricket field will host the WTC finals in 2023 and 2025. This decision was made by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
Tuesday was the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the ICC, which was place in Birmingham, England (July 26). After this meeting, the ICC issued a notice naming Lord’s as the location for the second cycle.
Lord’s was also selected as the ICC Test Championship venue. Nonetheless, due to the coronavirus epidemic, Lord’s was replaced by Southampton. India was defeated by New Zealand by eight wickets in a match interrupted by rain.
The England and Wales Cricket Board was responsible for arranging the second and third finals, just as it had been for the first (ECB). Lord’s has been selected as the WTC location for the final match this time. Even though the site has been determined, the ICC has not yet announced the dates for these two finals.
The Future Tour Schedule (FTP) was also approved at the ICC AGM, in addition to the Women’s Cricket World Cup host and Test Championship location. The ICC has announced the imminent release of FTP.
