The teams will now have to take each test series seriously, as the points will be allotted for every win. This will surely attract the crowds to watch the exhilarating contest between bat and ball. The ICC has floated new schedule for the World Test Championship 2021-23 Cycle.
The 2021-23 Cycle will start from Indian team playing a 5-test match series against England. Each side (8) will play 3 test series at home and 3 away series. The cutoff date for this cycle has been set as March 31, 2023.

This is the schedule posted by official account of ICC on Twitter.
The International Cricket Council as confirmed that there will be changes in the points system from the next cycle.
“We received feedback that the previous points system needed to be simplified. The Cricket Committee took this into consideration when proposing a new, standardized points system for each match. It maintained the principle of ensuring that all matches in a WTC series count towards a team’s standing, while accommodating series varying in length between two Tests and five Tests.” ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said.
