The inaugural edition of the World Test Championship Finals ended in the favour of the New Zealand side who fought really hard to win the trophy and they deserved it. India was too complacent at times and their team selection wasn’t ideal in the conditions that favored the fast bowlers a lot.
Kyle Jamieson was adjudged the man of the match for his excellent seven-wicket haul in the match overall and his lower-order contribution that was very vital in the context of the game. Here is the updated list of the top 5 wicket-takers in the ICC World Test Championship after the final has got over.
ICC World Test Championship: Top 5 Highest Wicket Takers In The Tournament
Nathan Lyon is the fifth-highest wicket-taker in the ICC World Test Championship with 56 wickets from 14 tests in the tournament. The Australian off-spinner picked up four five-wicket hauls in the process with the best figures of six wickets for 49 runs in an innings.
Lyon has done a brilliant job as he has been the only spinner in the side for the last seven to eight years along with the fast bowlers and he has always been on the mark despite the conditions favoring fast bowlers. Even if he isn’t getting those wickets, he has been always economical which has the highlight of his bowling plans.
