All the eyes are now on the ICC World Test Championship final, when two top teams in the longest format lock horns for the championship title. While Team India will leave for UK in June, the New Zealand cricketers will reach much before them to play against England before the much awaited final.
Kane Williamson & men to leave on May 15
In the latest update coming from the BLACKCAPS, New Zealand cricketers will be leaving for the UK on May 15. The Kiwis are scheduled to play two Tests against England before they take on the Men in Blue for the WTC final.
