So far, two Border Gavaskar Trophy matches have been played, and the hosts have won both with commanding positions all over. Visitors Australia were already lacking in the batting department, and with their skipper ruled out of the third test, their bowling appears to be in jeopardy. Let’s take a look at the WTC points table and India’s WTC qualification scenario.
ICC WTC Points Table
The Indians will take some comfort from knowing that they only need one more win to qualify for the ICC WTC 2021-23 Final, which will be held from June 7-11 at The Oval in London. If India wins the current four-match test series against Australia, it will top the WTC points table with 147 points and a 67.43 win percentage.
Australia, on the other hand, needs a win or a tie in one of the final two Border Gavaskar Trophy matches to eliminate Sri Lanka from the competition. Sri Lanka will have a chance to squeak in and win a spot in the ICC WTC 2021-23 Final if Australia fails to secure a draw or victory in the next two tests.
In the best-case scenario, India could win the series unilaterally and end up with a win percentage of 60.6 if they lose the next two tests.
