The World Test Championship (WTC) Final in Southampton was the culmination of a two-year period which saw the top Test playing nations in the world fight for the ultimate prize of becoming the official champions of cricket's oldest and toughest format. There have been teams in the past, who have dominated an era in Test cricket, like the West Indies team of the 1980s and early 1990s and the Australia side of late 90s and 2000s, but none had the distinction of being called the Test champions of the world as the ICC did not have a tournament in place.

But WTC has given the teams a chance to get that title and New Zealand were the maiden Test champions of the world after beating India by 8 wickets in the final. The Indian team under Virat Kohli came up short in the rain-affected final but they had a campaign to remember as they finished on top of the points table after winning all their home series and beating Australia and West Indies away from home.
