India Wins Ahmedabad Test But The Feat Is Still Incomplete
India defeated England in the 3rd test of the 4-test match series at Motera Stadium in Ahmedabad. And it is a big feat for India as it is now closer to reaching the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final at the Lord’s.
What next for Indian cricket team?
After winning the third-test match of thumping victory of 10-wickets, India is gearing up for a crucial fourth-test match starting 4th March at the same place. While England has lost its contention the final of WTC, it can spoil India’s chance to play the final, if it wins the fourth-test match.
The fourth-test match is crucial for black caps, if they want to pay the final. They have to win the match or at the best, draw the match in order to prevent Australia from getting a lead over them. The points tally gives the real reason for Indian team to fear losing the fourth-test and the final.
What are the points of India, England and Australia?
One of the three teams will reach the ICC WTC final and play with New Zealand. But England is out of the contention and it won’t make a comeback even, if, it wins the fourth-test against India. But Australia could get a lead, if India loses its fourth-test.
India stands on points tally with 71 points and England is down to 64.1 points. But Australia with 69.2 points is closer to India. If India loses the fourth-test, it will lose the battle to Australia. The final match will be played in June at Lords.
