ICC is Changing the Rules of the Test Championship
Several series of the World Test Championship has been ruined due to the deadly coronavirus that has spread worldwide. Which are impossible to arrange before the scheduled date of the final. As a result, the International Cricket Council ICC is changing the rules to fix the finalists of the World Test Championship.
As per the rules, the ICC had planned to hold the finals with the top two teams in the points table at the end of each team’s six series. However, due to lack of time, it is not possible for each team to host 6 series, so the ICC can rule on the selection of two finalists based on the percentage of points instead of the calculation of points.
The two finalists will be determined based on the percentage of points earned by the participating teams in the series. A final decision on the rules could be taken at a meeting of the ICC’s chief executive committee later this week.
Australia is currently ahead as a percentage of points. However, India is ahead in terms of points. With 296 points at the end of 3 series, the percentage of Australian points is 72.22. With 360 points in 4 series, 85 percent of India’s points. With 292 points in 4 series, the percentage of points of England is 70.83. With 180 points in 3 series, New Zealand has 50 percent of the points.
