London, April 20 (IANS) The International Cricket Council (ICC) said on Tuesday that the UK banning arrivals from India will not have an impact on the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand.

The match is scheduled to be held from June 18 to 22 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

The surge in the number of Covid-19 cases in India has led to the UK adding flyers from the country to its 'red list'.

"We are currently discussing with the UK government the impact of countries being on the 'red list'," an ICC spokesperson said in a statement.

"The ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) and other members have demonstrated how we can stage international cricket safely in the middle of a pandemic, and we are confident that we can continue to do that and that the World Test Championship final will go ahead as planned in June in the UK," said the spokesperson.
