Galle: New Zealand start their world test championship campaign against Sri Lanka today and captain Kane Williamson said that vying for a place in a world final will add to the competitive edge in future series.

After several delays, the world championship was finally launched at the end of last month. The world's top nine ranked teams will compete over two years for a place in the final at Lord's.

"It's a welcome addition to the Test format, bringing that context into every Test match that you play," Williamson told reporters. "Every time you play any team it's very, competitive, but now there's that added carrot where in two years time everyone is vying to play in a Test Championship final."
