The day has arrived when India and New Zealand are ready to fight it out in the much-awaited World Test Championship (WTC) final which gets underway from Friday at the Rose Bowl in Southampton. India will be taking on the Kane Williamson-led New Zealand from June 18 to June 22 at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton with a prize of Rs 12 crore along with an ICC Test Championship Mace as reward for the winner.

Ahead of the match, a picture of India skipper Virat Kohli and New Zealand's Kane Williamson's picture has been making the rounds on internet. Obviously, the picture has added to the hype of the match. However, at the same time the 'whiteness' of the picture is reminding Indians of an advertisement that they have grown up watching- Tide.

Since, the picture has both the cricketers dressed up in the white uniform, it is reminding Indian Twitterati of the detergent Tide's commercials that usually depict how the detergent turns a dirty cloth into a bright white one.

Here's the image.
