World Championship great for Test cricket: Waugh

Former Australia captain Steve Waugh believes the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) is a great concept and will add more excitement to the longest format of the game.

Getting underway on August 1 with the first Ashes Test in Birmingham, the inaugural WTC will see the top nine Test teams in the world — Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies — compete in 71 Test matches across 27 series, played over two years.

The top two teams will contest in the WTC Final in June 2021 (to be played in the UK) and the winners will be crowned ICC World Test Champions.
