    The game of cricket has three formats: test matches which are the oldest and they last for 5 days, ODI as the name suggests is a one-day match of 50 overs each and then T20 where each team plays 20 overs. Both ODI and T20 had a championship where different international teams played to win or lose but Test matches hadn’t any until 2019. In 2019 the World Test Championship was introduced by ICC in an attempt to make the oldest format of cricket more appealing and thrilling to the spectators.

    The final of this World Test Championship was played between the Indian and New Zealand cricket teams and the venue was Southampton in England. The rain had almost ruined the final but some amount of cricket took place anyway. New Zealand won the match by wickets. They were given a target of 139 in the final innings to play by India. Indian batting side could not perform well and as a result due to lesser run being scored, India lost the match.

    Cricket fans all over the world expressed their happiness over Kane Williamson and his team winning the first-ever World Test Championship.
