Test Championship ICC changes points system, India loses first position

DUBAI(Monitoring Desk) Since cricket matches were infected by the corona virus, the International Cricket Council (ICC) changed the points system for the World Test champions. Details reveal that the ICC has modified the World Test Championship points system, according to which the teams will now be ranked on average points instead of the cumulative points won. In order to ensure that the final of the Planned World Test Championship is held at Lord’s in June 2021, it was agreed by the ICC Board Meeting. Instead of overall points, the classification of the teams should be based on the points received and the available points in the series.

To guarantee that the players have equal chances and do not miss the cancelled series due to COVID-19. The ICC has also postponed the scheduled Women’s T20 World Cup to its board meeting in November 2022, according to media sources, following which the Women’s T20 World Cup will now be played in February 2023. In the other hand, for players to compete in international tournaments, the ICC has set a minimum age of 15 years. The International Cricket Council says that the purpose of the move is to provide each team with equal opportunities.
