New Zealand Beat India By 8 Wickets To Win World Test Championship Title

It is first major ICC trophy for the Black Caps, who had ended runners-up at the 2019 ODI World Cup after losing the final to hosts England on boundary count

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson led from the front, scoring a half-century to help his side defeat India in the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) Final, at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Wednesday.

It is first major ICC trophy for the Black Caps, who had ended runners-up at the 2019 ODI World Cup after losing the final to hosts England on boundary count. They had also lost the 2015 World Cup final to Australia.

Gone was the miserable rain that pushed this showpiece into a reserve day, the sun smiling on Williamson as he lifted the ICC’s Test mace in Southampton. The Black Caps’ commitment to whole-hearted, ego-free cricket and a collective purpose delivered the silverware they so richly deserve. Having been set a target of 139 runs, New Zealand reached 140 for two in 45.5 overs, winning by eight wickets. Williamson slammed an unbeaten knock of 52 runs off 89 balls, consisting of eight fours. Meanwhile, Ross Taylor hit the match-winning boundary for the victors, also scoring 47 off 100 balls. Meanwhile, Ravichandran Ashwin took two wickets for India, dismissing openers Tom Latham and Devon Conway. Earlier, India were bowled out for 170 runs in 73 overs, setting a 139-run target. Rishabh Pant top-scored for Virat Kohli’s outfit with 41 runs. Other than Pant, nobody from the Indian batting order could cross the 20-run mark in their second innings, courtesy of some good bowling by New Zealand. New Zealand bowlers began Day 6 on a strong note, with Kyle Jamieson taking the wickets of Cheteshwar Pujara and Virat Kohli. Trent Boult also took three wickets, with Tim Southee registered two dismissals. Meanwhile, Neil Wagner also took a wicket
