Despite winning the league stage, India finished second in the inaugural ICC World Test Championship. In the final match at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, Virat Kohli’s side were defeated by New Zealand by eight wickets.
India was one of the tournament’s most consistent teams, but they were unable to bring their “A” game to the table when it mattered most. Nonetheless, Virat Kohli and his teammates will be pleased with their performance and ready to continue the momentum into the 2019 World Test Championship cycle.
The new cycle will begin in July 2021 and conclude in July 2023. Each country will play three home series and three away series, according to the tournament’s original format. Following the announcement of India’s Future Tour Programmes (FTP) for the years 2021-23, here is a look at the team’s schedule for the second World Test Championship.
