The Oval to host 2023 world test championship final

September 21, 2022 GMT

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The Oval in London will host the world test championship final next year.

Lord’s will host the final in 2025, the International Cricket Council added on Wednesday.

In the inaugural final last year, New Zealand defeated India at Southampton. Lord’s was the original venue, but the final was moved because of COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

Australia leads the championship points table and South Africa is second. The eventual finalists will be determined next year with Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan also in contention.

The actual dates of the finals were yet to be determined.
