Icc Cricket World Test Championship Points Table 2021

England's national cricket team surged ahead of South Africa in the ICC World Test championship points table after a strong performance in the four-match Test series. The tourists defeated the hosts by a staggering 191 runs in the last test to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Notably, their favorable performances propelled them up the title standings. The Joe Root-led squad came under criticism lately after losing the two-match Test series in New Zealand by a score of 0-1. When they traveled to South Africa, they were already under immense strain. The Three Lions, on the other hand, finished the Test series well and are currently third on the points table with 146 points.

Points distributions in the ICC World Test Championship

A total of 120 points will be awarded for each series played, regardless of the number of games. These 120 points will be allocated between the two teams based on their results and the number of matches played. For instance, a victory in a two-match series earns you 60 points. A victory earns 40 points in a three-match series, and so on. Additionally, this points system disincentivizes teams from pursuing a draw. If a game is drawn, just one-third of the points provided for a victory are granted. In the very uncommon event of a tie, half of the points granted for a victory will be awarded.

Each of the WTC's top nine Test-playing countries will host three series and play three overseas. The championship will conclude on March 31, 2023. âWe recognize that defending the championship will be a significant task, but our emphasis will be on preparing as well as possible for the next tours and maintaining our current level of performance,â New Zealand captain Kane Williamson said.
