India is ahead in terms of winning matches in this cycle of WTC, but it has also played a lot of matches for it. In this case, the winning percentage is more than 50. But according to the new ICC rules, winning more Tests does not affect the points table of the WTC. Now the difference is in the winning percentage. If any team has a winning percentage, it will have the same difficulty in qualifying.

ICC World Test Championship

The Indian teams hopes of reaching the final of the World Test Championship (WTC) suffered a setback with a 2-1 series loss against South Africa at the start of the year. The Indian team suffered a seven-wicket defeat at the hands of South Africa in Cape Town. With this defeat, Team India had slipped from fourth to fifth place in the ICC World Test Championship points table.

Team India whitewash against Sri Lanka

Indias start to the ongoing WTC cycle was not quite right. So, coming into the home Test series against Sri Lanka, India were under a bit of pressure. Considering Sri Lanka as a team from the subcontinent, it was expected that India would face a tough challenge. However, this did not happen.

In both the matches, in Mohali and Bengaluru, India took Sri Lanka out of the game. While he got the big score in the first innings at Mohali, he scored 252 runs in the first innings at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru at Rank Turner. It was enough as the bowlers completed the rest to give India two big wins.
