Difficult for Team India in ICC World Test Championship points table

World Test Championship Points Table: There has been a change in the points table of the ICC World Test Championship once again. The New Zealand team was already at number one in the points table, but now after beating South Africa by 7 wickets in the second test, it has increased its lead further. This will have a bad effect on the health of the Indian team. Even if Team India defeats England in the third Test being played in Rajkot, it will not be able to occupy the number one position. However, it is certain that the Indian team will definitely reach number 2 by leaving Australia behind.

New Zealand number one in World Test Championship points table

Talking about the WTC points table, New Zealand is currently at number one. New Zealand had achieved the top position by winning the first test against South Africa and its winning percentage i.e. PCT was 66.66. Which has now reached 75 after the victory in the second test. After this, Australia team is in second place, whose PCT is 55.00. If we talk about the Indian team, it is currently in third place. Team India’s PCT is 52.77.

Team India can become number 2 by defeating England in the third test.

If the Indian team defeats England in the second test, it will benefit and the team will directly reach second place by defeating Australia. But still won’t be number one. So far, India has played 6 Tests and has won three and lost two. The team has 38 points. After winning the next match, his number of won matches will increase to 4 and PCT will reach 59.5. This means the PCT will be behind New Zealand and more than Australia. Let us remind you that in the ICC World Test Championship, the ranking is decided not on the basis of points but on the basis of PCT i.e. win percentage.

After the top 3 teams, the condition of rest is like this

After New Zealand, Australia and India, Bangladesh team is in fourth place, which has 50 PCT. The condition of Pakistan team is very bad. Out of the 5 Tests the team has played so far, it has won two and lost three. Due to this its PCT is 36.66. West Indies has now come at number six, its PCT is 33.33. In the coming days, while Team India will play the remaining two Tests against England, a 2-match Test series will be played between Australia and New Zealand. During this period too, a lot of changes can be seen in the points table of the World Test Championship.
