India and New Zealand are all set to face each other in the much-anticipated final of the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC), starting on Friday at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

Ahead of the summit clash, International Cricket Council (ICC) recently took to its official Twitter handle and shared an interesting video in which players from both the teams can be seen talking about their favourite Test matches.

Captioning the post, ICC wrote, “Everyone’s got a favourite. Some of the stars of the #WTC21 Final reveal their favourite ever Test match/series #INDvNZ.”

Young India wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant and his teammate Cheteshwar Pujara have picked the fourth and final Test of the 2020-21 Border-Gavaskar Trophy at the Gabba as their favourite game in the longest format.

“For me, Gabba is one of my best Test matches which I have played so far,” Pant said in a video.

Speaking about his favourite Test, Pujara said, “As a batsman, my best knock is at Adelaide but as an Indian team member, my favourite Test is at the Gabba.”

Among the Kiwis, BJ Watling, who is set to retire after the conclusion of the WTC finale, described the 2018 Test series win over Pakistan in the UAE and the 2013 Test series in West Indies as his memorable games in the oldest format.

Kiwi pacer Trent Boult named the seven-run win over Australia in Hobart in 2011 as a special one.

“My first one will obviously, be pretty memorable,” Boult added.
