The two-year-long inaugural Test championship comes to its conclusion this weekend with the grand finale at the Rose Bowl - don't miss a single ball of the WTC final with our India vs New Zealand live stream guide below.
Separated by just two rating points, New Zealand and India come into this final ranked as number one and two Test sides in the world.
Both sides look very well matched, with Kane Williamson's New Zealand have won each of the last six Test matches that they have played, while India's recent form is similarly strong, with Virat Kohli's men having won four of the last five Test matches that they have competed in.
The Kiwi's come into this clash off the back of an impressive Test series win over England, inflicting a stunning eight-wicket defeat on their hosts at Edgbaston at the weekend.
India hasn't been in Test action since March, preferring to prepare for this final with an intra-squad game, nevertheless, their last red ball action saw them ease past England 3-1 on home turf. Wriddhiman Saha, Ravindra Jadeja, and Hanuma Vihari all missed that series, but the key trio are all now fit and back in the fold for this crucial clash.
Black Caps captain Williamson meanwhile allayed fears he would miss the match, after confirming he had brushed off an elbow injury that forced him to miss his side's second Test against England last week.
