What Test Results And PCT Does India Need To Reach WTC Final?

India’s Chances Of Playing In the WTC Final

The recent 2-0 win over Bangladesh in the run to the World Test Championship qualification has strengthened India’s position in the points table. India stands in the 2nd spot in the points table but much depends on the forthcoming 4-series matches against Australia.


• India was knocked out of the WTC final last year by New Zealand
• India needs to win the series against Australia by 4-0 to seal its spot in the WTC final

What Are India’s Chances Of Playing In the WTC Final?

A 4-0 win over Australia will increase India’s PCT to 68.06% and seal its place in the WTC final irrespective of the score of other contenders. Winning the series with 3-0 or 3-1 will lower India’s PCT to 62.50% but it can reach the final without any competition. If India wins the series with 1-0 or 2-0, its PCT will be 60.25% but sufficient to book a spot in the final.

 India’s Chances Of Playing In the WTC Final

What Will Happen If India Loses The Series To Australia?

If the series results in a 0-0, 1-1, or 2-2 (draw) score, India’s PCT will reach below the 60% mark where it can enter the final only if Australia beats South Africa by a big margin in the coming series. Also, India’s candidature will depend on the results of the West Indies v/s South Africa and New Zealand v/s Sri Lanka series.

If India loses the series to Australia 0-1, it will enter the final only if South Africa and Sri Lanka lose their series comprehensively. But if India loses its series by 0-2, 0-3, or 0-4 results, it will be out of the race to the WTC final.
