With this series, both teams are set to once again commemorate the World Test Championship final. The Kiwis beat India in the final to win their first World Test title. The second edition of the ICC World Test Championship is currently underway. As the world champions, the New Zealand team will launch the title defense against the Indian team. It is known that the Kiwi team won the first series in this championship. Let us know what is the status of Test Championship Table (WTC Points Table) before this series.
The World Test Championship begins with the first Test between India and England in Edgbaston in August. Only 4 of the 5 Tests in the series were played. The fifth match had to be canceled due to Kovid. The match will take place next year. Both teams were successful in scoring points in this series. There was only one series between India, England and Pakistan and the West Indies. In this two-match series both teams won one match each and opened the account.
India in the first place ..
Before the start of the second series of Team India, the situation in the ICC World Test Championship points table was very funny. The Indian team, which has played four Test matches, tops the table. Team India won two matches, lost one and drew one. This added 26 points to India’s tally. But, this time the points percentage system is being used instead of points. Thus India has a percentage of 54.17 points. Scored 26 of 48 points. On the other hand, Pakistan and West Indies are joint second with 50% (12 points). In third place is England (14 points) with 29.17%.
Changes in the points system ..
The ICC changed the points system in the last Test Championship and this time reduced the value of each match to 12 points. In this way, points are distributed to each team according to the percentage of points. In the last championship, 60 points were awarded for each series. Many questions arise on that. However, this time too all the teams will play only 6 series. 3 of which are played at home and 3 abroad. Team India played its first overseas series in England. The first series is currently being played at home against New Zealand. With a total of 24 points in the series, Team India has a chance to strengthen its lead in the first place.
