Explore the captivating world of the World Test Championship and its iconic trophy, ‘The ICC Mace,’ as we anticipate the thrilling Australia vs. India match and reflect on the enduring allure of cricket’s ultimate test
England against Australia may be the series that everyone is waiting on this summer – but before the Ashes, there’s a World Test Championship at stake. The winners will lift one of modern sport’s most iconic and distinctive pieces of silverware.
The ICC World Test Championship (WTC), is the culmination of a two-year marathon, involving 69 matches over 27 series played from Melbourne to Mumbai and London to Chittagong.
Australia and India eventually qualified for the final having finished in the top two of the WTC League Table, averaging comfortably more points than their two nearest challengers, South Africa and England.
This is just the second edition of a tournament that was first due to be played in 2013. Now, a decade on from that cancellation, the WTC has assumed ever-greater significance.
