The ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand saw the Kiwis winning the inaugural edition of the tournament at the Rose Bowl, Southampton. It was a belter of a battle between the two best teams of the tournament and India will continue their hunt for their ICC title under the leadership of Virat Kohli.
Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor guided their side to a comfortable win in a tricky chase of 139 in the fourth innings with eight wickets left while the Indian team had no answers to the assault. Here are 5 deserving players who could have won the player of the tournament award.
5 Deserving Players Who Could Have Won The Player Of The Tournament:
Marnus Labuschagne was phenomenal in the World Test Championship at the top of the order for Australia and he kept on piling up runs for his nation. He is still relatively new to international cricket but has established himself as one of the most important batsmen in the Australian batting order.
Lasuchagne topped the batting charts in the World Test Championship with 1675 runs from 13 tests at a stunning average of 72.82. He scored five centuries and nine fifties in the tournament with the highest score of 215. Labuschagne thoroughly deserves to be the player of the tournament for his batting exploits.
