As the match kickstarted, New Zealand’s skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl first. Earlier, the opening day of the ongoing final Test match of WTC was washed out because of the rain however with the reserve day in place, all the efforts will be made to decide the result of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship.

Meanwhile, as the Virat Kohli-led Team India walked out for the National Anthem ahead of the WTC final, the players were seen wearing black armbands. The reason for the gesture was the heart-breaking demise of the legendary Indian sprinter Milkha Singh. The 91-year-old sprinter, Milkha Singh, passed away late on Friday night because of the complications related to COVID-19 and the Indian cricketers paid their tribute to the legend for whatever he has done for the country, over his glorious lifetime.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took to their twitter and shared the same via a heart-touching tweet. The BCCI wrote:

“in remembrance of Milkha Singhji, who passed away due to COVID-19”.
