World Test Championship Points Table : Test cricket has started. The New Zealand cricket team is currently on a tour of Bangladesh and the first test match is going on. It has been four days since the first Test, meanwhile New Zealand is in danger of defeat, while Bangladesh team seems to be moving towards victory. The special thing is that the Test match is being played under the World Test Championship, of which New Zealand has been the champion. Meanwhile, before the first match ends, you should know what is currently happening in the points table of the World Test Championship. Which team is on top and what is the condition of the Indian team.

Pakistan is number one in the points table of World Test Championship, Team India is at second place.

If we talk about the World Test Championship i.e. WTC points table, the Pakistani cricket team is currently on top. Pakistan has played two matches so far and has won both. He has 24 points and the winning percentage is also 100. After this, Team India occupies the second position.

New Zealand vs Bangladesh test match status

Meanwhile, the teams of New Zealand and Bangladesh are playing the match under WTC for the first time. It has been four days since the first Test and New Zealand seems to be on the back foot. Talking about the match, Bangladesh batted first and scored a good score of 310 runs in the first innings. In response, New Zealand managed to take a slight lead by scoring 317 runs. But in the second innings, Bangladesh set a big target for New Zealand by scoring 338 runs. When the fourth day of the match ended, New Zealand had scored 113 runs for seven wickets and still needed 219 runs to win. Although there is still a whole day’s play left, but the problem is that New Zealand has only three wickets left. Therefore, it seems like a crisis is looming over the team. Now only some charisma can save New Zealand from defeat from here.

How to get points in WTC points table

Let us tell you that in the World Test Championship, 12 points are given after every win, while four points are given if the match is drawn. In case of a tie, six points are awarded. That means, if Bangladesh wins this match, it will have 12 points and the team will directly reach fourth place. West Indies have only four points and England have only 9 points. But it is not a matter of marks. Which team’s position in the points table is decided not on points but on winning percentage. This is the reason why England with 9 points is still behind West Indies with four points. That means, after winning the first match, Bangladesh’s win percentage will become 100, in this sense the team can go straight to number two. Due to this, the Indian team may have to come at third place.
