The ICC (International Cricket Council) World Test Championships has implemented a brand new test cricket point system. International Cricket Council modifies this point system for this current situation. The primary motive for placing up new point system because most of the test series was impacted because of the coronavirus pandemic. The recommendations were completed by the BCCI cricket board’s former India skipper Anil Kumble and has gotten an endorsement from the International Cricket Council.
This new improvement of the point system is attention-grabbing because it has put Australia on top of the ICC World Test championship ranking table while India is in 2nd position. In June 2021 the upcoming test series in Lord’s ground, England might be a preview of the ICC World Test Championships final.
The International Cricket Council said that, “The phenomenal disturbance brought about by Coronavirus implies, until this point, simply under portion of the ICC World Test Championship test matches have been played, with that assessed to greater than over 85% before the end of the ICC World Test Championship. Current guidelines direct that test matches not finished will be treated as a draw with points divided. The Cricket Committee thought about sustaining that established order or figuring out the ultimate standings from matches performed”.
ICC CEO Manu Sawhney said that, “Each Cricket Board and CEOs Advisory group the supported of positioning groups dependent on finishing matches and points procured as this mirrors their ability and doesn’t disadvantage teams that have been not able to contend the entirety of their test matches through no issue of their own. We investigated an entire scope of choices, however, we Individuals felt that we should always continue as arranged with the primary ever ICC World Test championship remaining in June one year from now”.
Allow us to consider for instance the variety of point numbers aggregated by India and Australia so far in the ICC World Test Championships. India has collected 360 points out of the 480 that they have played in the four-Test series. Australia has 296 points from 360 of total points complete challenges in the three-Test series they have performed in. In this way, the rate is determined by the complete total points separated by points challenged into 100.
The points table, truly, probably won’t be affected a lot. Out of the apparent multitude of teams, just New Zealand and England have a practical possibility of making it to the best two in the event that India and Australia goof their position. New Zealand has two test series staying towards West Indies and Pakistan whereas England have a significant five-Test series against India planned for February. In the event that New Zealand wins every one of their Tests, England figures out how to conquer India and Australia loses to South Africa, at that point the ICC World Test championship could be fascinating.
