Will India qualify for WTC if the 4th Test results in Draw; Know more

Australian side have bounced back well in the third Test match against India. Indian cricket team had no answers to the questions Australian bowlers and batters asked in the game in Indore. After this loss, the series is now at 2-1 and the final game will be an important one. India was expected to sweep Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy after winning the first two games. The visitors, however, made a strong comeback in the third Test, outplaying the hosts in the Indore Test by chasing a mere 76-run target in the final innings.

If India and Australia draw the fourth Test and India wins the series 2-1, Sri Lanka will have a chance to beat India in the World Cup final. Then India must hope that Sri Lanka does not win the Test series against New Zealand 2-0. If this occurs, Sri Lanka will pass India in the WTC points table and move up to second place with a PCT of 61.0.

If India wins the IND vs AUS series 2-1, their PCT will fall to 59.0. Then, if Sri Lanka defeats New Zealand 2-0 in the upcoming Test series, Sri Lanka and Australia can qualify for the WTC final.
