New Zealand thumped India by eight wickets in the World Test Championship (WTC) final to be crowned as the best of the format. The rain hit WTC final saw India struggle with bat in both innings as the Kiwis rode home on an all round performance. With overhead conditions suiting their bowlers, the Blackcaps ransacked the Indian line up not once but twice.

India’s poor run in the knockout stages continue as they yet again failed to go the extra yard and lift the title. The Asian giants had a lot going against them, starting from their poor batting to blunders on the field. India were no where close to their usual best and hence finished second in the inaugural edition of the WTC.
