India has solidified its position in the World Test Championship after a thumping win against Australia in the first Test match of the series. India emerged victorious with an innings and 132 runs victory over the visitors.
Despite a crushing defeat to India in the first of four Test series in Nagpur, Australia maintained its lead on the ICC World Test Championship 2021-23 points table.
The Rohit Sharma-led team was second on the points table before the series began, and they remain there despite having consolidated their chances of making the final.
According to the updated points table, the Pat Cummins-led side is on the top spot, with their Percentage of Points dropping from 75.56 percent to 70.83 percent with today’s defeat.
India, on the other hand, has increased their points percentage from 58.93 to 61.67 percent, putting them ahead of Sri Lanka, who is third with 53.33 percent.
South Africa is on the fourth spot with 48.72 percent while England stands fifth with 46.97 after whitewashing Pakistan in the three-match Test series last year.
