The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday confirmed that the point table of their first World Test Championship will be altered due to a corona virus epidemic. The cricket governing body of the world approved this recommendation of the ICC Cricket Committee headed by Anil Kumble. With this recommendation, the points of the teams will now be counted in a new way. This decision of ICC has given a shock to Team India and the team has lost their first number position in the point table and Australia has now reached number one.

Mark Boucher told that during the series against England, he will not sit on his knees
In fact, the ICC has now made the percentage of wins, not the point table, the basis of the ranking of the World Championship. Accordingly, the team whose win percentage is higher will increase their chances of going up in the rankings. Australia has benefited from this ICC rule, while India has suffered. In the new ranking released by the ICC, Team India is at number two, as Australia’s percentage is 82.2, which is more than 75 percent of India. During this period, the series which could not be held during the corona epidemic is considered a draw.
While India played four series before the Corona era where its win percentage was 75 percent, Australia played three series and Australia’s win percentage was 82.2 during this period. Earlier Team India was at number one with 360 points and Australia had 296 points. Talking of other teams, England are third in this list with 292 points and 60.8 per cent wins. The Kiwi team is at number four in this list with 180 points and 50 percent wins.
