Could Australia Play In The Final Of ICC World Test Championship?
An upbeat New Zealand prepares to play in ICC World Test Championship final at Lord’s in June 2021. And it was an easy success for the Kiwis as Australia postponed its three-test tour to South Africa.
Who are the other contestants?
After New Zealand, it is the turn of India and England to fight for the second spot. And the English team is on their way to India to play four-tests series starting 5 February in Chennai. It will be a crucial series for both the contestants but the decision will be taken on the basis of points. The team that wins maximum points from a total of 120 points will go to Lord’s.
Indian cricket team need continuing their winning spree
India is on an ultimate high after defeating Australia in a recent test-series. And now they need winning the upcoming four-tests with a minimum margin of 2-1 to qualify for the finals. But defeating the English team won’t be an easy job as England has also demonstrated good cricket be defeating Sri Lanka with 2-0. The only thing that goes in the favor of India is that England would have to win the series with at least 3-0 and it is a daunting task for English players.
Australia still has a chance to play the final
Australia can play in the final in the event of India winning the series with 1-0 of the series is completely drawn or remain 1-1 or 2-2. In this situation, Australia will technically qualify for the final match against the Kiwis.
