ICC World Test Championship Points Table: Team India created history today under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. In the last match of the Test series being played against South Africa, Team India has defeated South Africa by 7 wickets. The Indian team toured South Africa for the first time in 1992, since then the Indian team had never been able to win a match in Cape Town. But what had not happened till now, has now happened under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. Meanwhile, with this victory, the Indian team has also taken a huge leap in the ICC World Test Championship i.e. WTC points table. After the defeat in the last match, the team had come down a lot, but now Team India has overtaken Pakistan.

Team India again becomes number one in the World Test Championship points table.

If we talk about the latest points table of the World Test Championship i.e. India vs South Africa in the second test match, then Team India has occupied the number one position. The Indian team was struggling at sixth place before this match, but it has jumped five places at once. The Indian team has so far played four matches under the WTC and has won two and lost one. One match ended in a draw due to rain. Team India’s winning percentage at present is 54.16. Whereas the South African team, which was earlier at number one, has now directly moved to number two. South Africa has played two matches so far, winning one of them and losing the other. The team’s winning percentage is 50. After this, New Zealand team is at third place. New Zealand has played two matches, winning one and losing the other. Australian team is at number four. He has played seven matches so far. The team has won four of these matches and lost one. One match has ended in a draw. Talking about Pakistan, this team is at sixth position. The team has won two out of four matches and lost two. The team’s winning percentage at present is 45.83.

This is how points are awarded as per ICC rules

According to ICC rules, on winning every match of the World Test Championship, the team is given 12 points directly. If the match ends in a draw, then both the teams are given four points each. In case of a tie, six points are distributed between the two teams. Whereas the losing team does not get anything. But the points table of WTC is determined not on the basis of points, but on the basis of winning percentage. Full 100 percent is given to the winning team. South Africa had won the very first match of this cycle, hence it had directly reached number one with 100 percent win, but after this defeat, the team’s win percentage has remained only 50.
