Southampton, June 8 : The World Test Championship Final between India and New Zealand will be played on June 18-22 in Southampton, England. The ICC has announced the umpires for this match. Richard Elingworth and Michael Gough will be the on-field umpires on the ICC’s elite panel, while Richard Kettleborough will be the third umpire and Alex Wharf will be the fourth umpire.
Discussions have started on social media that the announcement of the umpire by the ICC is a relief for Team India, as Richard Kettleborough will not be officiating for the match. In the last four ICC knockout matches, India lost when Kettleborough was the umpire.
2014 India-Sri Lanka T20 World Cup Final, 2015 India-Australia World Cup Quarter Final, 2016 India-West Indies T20 World Cup Semi Final and 2019 India-New Zealand World Cup Semi-Final Umpires at Kettleborough Ground Had come. After India won the Champions Trophy final in 2013, these four ICC tournaments took place and all four of them failed to knock out matches.
