Team India’s Qualification Scenario for ICC WTC Finals
Last year’s ICC WTC Finals’ winner New Zealand has long lost their race to reach finals this year. However, with the runner-ups from last year, India still has a tiny chance at qualification. South Africa’s 2-1 loss against England has once again made qualification intense for the teams. While it is not official yet, it is highly likely that Australia will be one of the two finalists in the ICC WTC Finals. But now, South Africa, Sri Lanka, India and Pakistan are all in an intense fight to reach the final. Looking for India’s top betting sites?

How can Team India qualify for the ICC WTC Finals?
While team India’s qualification scenario is very tight and rather a do-or-die situation, they can still be the finalists. The men in blue will play 6 test matches which include 2 against Bangladesh and 4 against Australia. In order to achieve a place in the finals, they need to win all 6 test matches. 6 in 6 wins will boost their win percentage from 52.08 to 68%. A 4-0 win versus Australia will not just help India’s win percentage but will negatively affect Australia.

However, if team India either loses or draws even one match their qualification scenario will be impossible. The only way the team will then make it to the ICC WTC Finals is by the poor performance of South Africa. Sitting comfortably at the second position with a win percentage of 60, South Africa has 5 test matches before the finals. They will play 2 matches with the West Indies at home and 3 with Australia in Australia. The Proteas too will need 5 wins in 5 matches for the fixed position.
Current World Test Championship points table
4 wins in 5 games will put Africa with a 66.67 win percentage and with 6 wins India will have 68 points which will place them above Africa. As for Australia, they have 5 games at home and 4 games away remaining. Hence, for India to get past Australia and make it to the ICC WTC Finals, Australia will have to lose all 4 games away. 4 losses and 5 wins will have Australia at 63.16 wins percent making way for India.
