WTC final – Ind vs NZ – Tim Southee


New Zealand quick hopes winning the WTC gives his team the opportunity to play longer series more often

New Zealand have played 18 bilateral Test series over the last five years. Of those, four have been three-match series, with two-match series making up the remainder. Compare that to the team they defeated in the World Test Championship final. India have played 18 series too, but 12 of them have included at least three Tests. Unlike New Zealand, they have also featured in a number of four- and five-match series in this period.
Could winning the WTC pave the way for New Zealand to play longer series more often? Tim Southee certainly hopes so.
