The final match of the first ICC Test Championship is to be played between India and New Zealand. Every cricket lover is waiting for this match to be played in Southampton, England. For the first time, this tournament, which is considered to be the World Cup of Test, has been organized. Both India and New Zealand teams will be competing to become winners for the first time by achieving this. This match is also very important for New Zealand's experienced wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling.
New Zealand wicket-keeper batsman BJ Watling is going to say goodbye to international cricket after this match. He has already announced this. He is expected to bid farewell to his illustrious international career by winning the WTC final against India starting Friday.
This will be Watling's 75th and last Test. Watling, who was ruled out of the second Test against England last week due to a back injury, has returned to the squad for the crucial match. He said, 'I am looking forward to this match. It will be interesting and I will try to do well. I will go the same way as the rest of the test goes. My aim will be to win.' Watling made his international debut in 2009.
He said that he is lucky that fitness problems did not come in the way of such a long career. He said, 'A cricketer keeps getting minor injuries. Back pain bothers you on a few occasions, but with time one learns to deal with these injuries. I am lucky that there were no major injuries. I thoroughly enjoyed my time playing for New Zealand. It was a memorable journey.
