From June 7, Oval will host the ICC World Test Championship 2023 final
As two years of Test cricket come to an end in the Ultimate Test at The Oval in England, the International Cricket Council (ICC) confirmed on Wednesday that the second installment of the ICCWorld Test Championship Final will be played between June 7 and 11.
In its long history, the South London venue has played host to over 100 Test matches. In June, the top two Test teams in the ICC World Test Championship standings will arrive to battle for the ICC World Test Championship Mace.
The highlight of the Test season is the ICC World Test Championship Final, a weeklong celebration of the game's longest format. The ICC World Test Championship's two years of rigorous competition—61 Test matches across 24 series—have culminated in this Ultimate Test.
Even though the two opposing nations may not yet be known, anticipation is growing for the June matchup as a number of important games are scheduled to take place in the next weeks to determine the Finalists.
While all six teams have a chance to qualify, Sri Lanka, which is currently third in the standings, and South Africa, which is currently fourth, are among the favourites to challenge the top two. These teams will face off against the current WTC champions New Zealand and the West Indies in two two-Test series in February and March.
