ENG vs IND test: The New Zealand cricket team has become the first team to reach the final of the ICC World Test Championship.
On Tuesday, Australia’s South Africa tour has been postponed indefinitely. Because of which the New Zealand cricket team benefited and is the first team to reach the final.
There has also been much controversy over the refusal by the Australian team to play in South Africa.
But the tour of South Africa has been canceled indefinitely, citing Australia’s cricket coronavirus. After this decision, the Australian team’s hopes of reaching the final of the ICC World Test Championship have become extremely difficult.
However, it is not completely out yet. Apart from the New Zealand cricket team, India, England, and Australia have teams in the race of other finalists.
So let’s know which team has a lot of chance. The Indian team needs a total of 70 more points to stay ahead of Australia. Right now India has to play a series of 4 Test matches against the England team from 5 February.
This means that if India manages to win at least 2-1, then it will get 30 points for winning a match.
In such a situation, two wins and one draw will give the Indian team a total of 75 points. Apart from this, if the Indian team manages to win the series 3–0 or 4–0, then it will qualify.
While England’s team needed 87 points in the next 4 matches to go ahead of Australia. This means that the England team will have to win at least 3 Tests against India.
Which is quite difficult for England’s team. Because if you look at the record, the last time in India was a West Indies team that won three matches in a Test series.
And he did this feat a long time ago during the year 1983-84. The same Australian team is also not out of the race yet.
But he lost 4 points in the Boxing Day Test due to the slow over-rate against the Indian team. They will now put them in a lot of trouble.
Had it not been so, the Australian team would have been equal to 70 points with New Zealand. At that time, it was decided by the ratio of runs per wicket in which Australia is ahead.
Now this decision will be taken by ENG vs IND test. This series will decide which team will face the New Zealand team in the final.
