Openers’ Averages WTC: With one cycle of the WTC completed and the next one now in full swing, we look at the team-wise average opening stands in the tournament so far!

The World Test Championship began in August 2019 with the Ashes. In almost 2 and a half years, we have already completed one cycle and crowned the first-ever World Test Champions in New Zealand!
