Black Armbands In WTC Final

India and Australia are currently locking horns against each other in the final of the World Test Championship. The match is being played at the Kennington Oval Cricket Ground in London. As players from both sides walked out on the field for the national anthems of their respective countries, they were seen sporting black armbands. Players and match officials have won the armbands as a mark of respect for those who lost their lives in the tragic train accident in Odisha last week.

Over 200 people lost their lives in a horrific train accident in Odisha on Friday, June 2. The derailment of the Shalimar-Chennai Central Coromandel Express happened after it collided with a freight train near the Bahanaga Bazar Station.
