Team India: The Indian team will play a Test series against Australia in February-March. The result of this series will not only make Team India number-1 in Tests, but will also include them in the WTC final.
The Indian cricket team has performed brilliantly in white ball cricket in recent times. In the current ICC rankings, India is the best ODI and T20 team in the world. Team India stood first with 114 rating points in ODIs. At the same time, India topped the T20 International with 267 points. A changed India that has reached the top spot in ODIs and T20Is, now there is a chance to get the number one rank in Tests as well. Now let’s know what India needs to do to get the first rank in Tests..
Only if they beat Australia by 4-0..
The Indian cricket team will play the next Test series against Australia. The Kangaroo team will come to India next month to play a four-Test series. This series is crucial for Rohit Sena for two reasons. The first reason is that India will need to win this series by a better margin to enter the final of the ICC World Test Championship. Australia need to beat Australia 2-0 or 3-1 to qualify for the final of the Test Championship. The second reason is that for India to reach number one in the Test rankings, they need to whitewash Australia 4-0 in the home series.
What is the current Test rank of Team India?
India is second in the current ICC Test rankings. Team India is 11 points behind Australia with 115 rating points. The Kangaroo team is number one with 126 rating points. Overall, the Test series between India and Australia will be exciting. In the last 14 years, the Kangaroo team could not win a single Test on Indian soil. Meanwhile, in the last 52 years, Australia have managed to win a Test series on Indian soil only once. The Test series between the two countries will start from February 9.
