The ICC World Test Championship (WTC) has been very entertaining for the last two years and the matches have been of the highest order in the tournament despite it being the inaugural edition. New Zealand won the all-important ICC title after 20 years and they have been putting in the hard yards for a long time.
India came so close to making history under Virat Kohli but they weren’t good enough against the Kiwis side which looked more potent and had a lot of depth.
Arguably, this is the best New Zealand test team that can be put together and they deserve to win the ICC World Test Championship. Some players in the tournament couldn’t match their expectations and here is the flop XI of the Inaugural edition of the World test championship.
ICC World Test Championship: Flop XI Of The Tournament:
The England top-order batsman Joe Denly played the first part of the World Test Championship cycle and was dropped from the test team owing to some poor consistency. Denly played 10 tests scoring 569 runs at an average of 29.94 with four half-centuries and a highest score of 94. The 35-year-old right-hander is approaching the latter stages of his career and doesn’t look like getting another opportunity in the England test team.
