After a 2-0 victory against Bangladesh, Team India’s World Test Championship Final Qualification Scenario

Advertisment

The Indian cricket team’s 2-0 Test series victory against Bangladesh has significantly boosted their World Test Championship qualification chances. India now sits second in the points table, with just a four-match series against Australia remaining until the WTC final next year. After losing to New Zealand in the WTC final the previous cycle, the Indian team has a great opportunity to set things right this time. They still have a few obstacles to overcome before their passage to the final is secured.First and foremost, if Rohit Sharma’s men defeat Australia 4-0 in their upcoming match, the Indian side would be guaranteed a berth in the WTC final. With a PCT of 68.06%, such a performance would guarantee India’s place in the final, regardless of the outcomes of the other competitors.
If India defeats Australia 3-1 or 3-0, their PCT will be 62.50%. This amount would also be sufficient for them to advance to the final without relying on other results.If the series doesn’t produce a result (0-0, 1-1, or 2-2 draw), India’s PCT would fall below the 60% mark. in such a case, India would want Australia to beat South Africa by a big margin in the following Test series. Even the results of the series between West Indies and South Africa, as well as New Zealand and Sri Lanka would need to go India’s way.
In a case where India go on to lose the 4-match Test series against Australia, India would need South Africa and Sri Lanka to lose their forthcoming Test assignments comprehensively. This scenario only stands true for a 0-1 defeat for India. In the case of 0-2, 0-3, or 0-4 defeats, India would be virtually knocked out of the WTC final race.
