What is the status of India?
Indian team has played 11 Tests in WTC so far. In these, after 6 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws, he is in third place with 58.33 percent. Right after India, Pakistan’s team is at the fourth position with 52.38 percent.
How can India reach the WTC final?
For this, along with India, the equations of the matches of the teams occupying the top-2 position will have to be taken care of. It will be something like this…
- India is yet to play 7 Tests in this championship. In this, one is against England, four against Australia, and two against Bangladesh. If India wins its remaining 7 matches, then it will be sure to play its WTC final. Because in such a situation, India’s percentage will become 74.53 and Australia’s points will fall. If the Indian team loses one match out of these 7 then it will come down to 68.98 percent and if it loses two matches then it will come to 63.42. In such a situation, he will have to depend on the equations of other teams.
- Australia is yet to play 10 matches in this championship. They have one match against Sri Lanka, four against India, two against West Indies, and three against South Africa. If the Australian team loses at least 4 or 5 matches here, then India’s chances of reaching the WTC final will be strong. Yes, especially India does not have to lose the series to Australia here in any case.
- South Africa has to play matches against England, Australia, and West Indies. If the Indian team somehow manages to win their 5 matches and Australia also wins 7-8 out of their 10 matches, then even in such a situation India’s hope of playing the WTC final will remain intact. For this, it will be necessary that South Africa have to face defeat on their tour of England and Australia.
- Pakistan has to play 7 Tests in this championship. In this 5 are on home ground. In such a situation, there is a chance of Pakistan also playing in the WTC final. It would be better for India that Pakistan could not win 5 out of their 7 Tests in any case.
