Australia, who are at the top of the World Test Championship points table, are certain to play the final. But there is a tough competition between India and Sri Lanka to enter the final as the 2nd team. A 3-0 or 3-1 or 2-0 win in the 4-match Test series against Australia will give Team India a direct entry into the final.
The date for the World Test Championship 2023 final has been finalised. The WTC Finals will be held from June 8-12. In case of inclement weather there will be a reserve day. This time the Oval ground in England will host the final match of the World Test Championship. Meanwhile, Australia, which is at the top of the World Test Championship points table, is sure to play the final. But there is a tough competition between India and Sri Lanka to enter the final as the 2nd team. A 3-0 or 3-1 or 2-0 win in the 4-match Test series against Australia will give Team India a direct entry into the final. Because even if they win by 2-0, Team India will get 60.65% points. At the same time, the Australian team’s points will drop to 63.16 percent. So that both teams can meet in the final. Sri Lanka will get a chance only if Team India loses the series against Australia. If Team India loses against Australia by 3-1 or 2-0, 1-0 then the chances of Sri Lanka team reaching the final are high. If the Lankan team wins the 2-match Test series against New Zealand by 2-0, they can directly enter the final. So India must win against Australia by 4-0 or 3-1 or 3-0 or 2-0. If the series is tied at 2-2, then Sri Lanka-New Zealand will have to depend on the result of the match.
Because if India wins 4-0 against Australia it will get 68.06% marks. 3-1 win 62.5%, 2-0 win 60.65%. If the series is drawn 2-2 then only 56.94% points. A 2-0 win against New Zealand will give Sri Lanka 60% points. With this, Team India will leave the final race. A plus point for Team India’s entry into the final of the World Test Championship is that the Indian team will play a home series against Australia. At the same time, the Sri Lankan team is scheduled to play a series in New Zealand. Sri Lanka have yet to win a Test series in New Zealand. Thus the chances of winning for the Indian team playing at home have increased. So there is a chance to see the Indian team again in the final of the World Test Championship.
