BCCI Considers Hosting 2027 World Test Championship Final Outside England

In a significant development, BCCI secretary Jay Shah has given a massive update on the venue for the World Test Championship final.

Speaking to the media, Shah revealed that the BCCI is in conversation with the ICC to host the WTC 2027 final in a venue other than England.

Both WTC finals have been conducted in England, and the decider of the ongoing cycle will also be played at Lord’s, known as the home of cricket.

Shah has revealed that the BCCI has made a bold move, approaching the apex body with a proposal to host the WTC 2027 final in a different venue.

However, he also explained why England has been an ideal venue to host the fixture, given the inclement weather conditions in India and Australia at that time of the year.

“We have spoken to the ICC for 2027. There are only three main Test centres, India, England, and Australia. You cannot hold it in Australia during that window or even in India. Even in Bengaluru, it rains during that time,” he said.

Since its inception in 2019, the World Test Championship has always been in focus for being the most prestigious tournament in the purest format.

Each WTC cycle lasts two years, and the top two teams meet in the championship’s final fixture.
