WTC 2023 Points Table

The points system came in for an overhaul for the second WTC cycle. Unlike the first edition, where teams were ranked on the basis of total point percentage, this time around, 12 points would be up for grabs for a team in each match. A win would give the team 12 points, a tie 6 points, a draw 4 points and 0 points for a defeat. Besides, if found guilty of slow over rate, a team would be penalised one point. Australia topped the table with 152 points and a percentage of 66.7 after winning 11 Tests out of 19. India finished 2nd with 127 points and a percentage of 58.8....read more

The Points Percentage System (PCT) is used to determine the final standings at the World Test Championship. PCT is calculated by dividing the total value by maximum value, and then multiplying the resultant by 100. Similarly, in the WTC, it is calculated by adding the total points a team has scored, then dividing them by the maximum points it could've reached, and finally multiplying the resultant number by 100. For example, if a team has played 10 Tests in a cycle, it can score a maximum of 120 points (10*12); however, if the side scored only 80 points, the PCT would be 66.66 (80/120*100).

Yes, India being the finalists, will qualify for the next cycle of WTC that will run from 2023 to 2025
