    The second edition of the ICC World Test Championship has given immense excitement and joy to fans. Matches have gone down the wire and teams have also given their best to make their case strong for the final.

    How can India reach the final of the World Test Championship?

    The final of the World Test Championship is likely to take place from June 7 to 11 at the Oval. It’s fair to say that only Australia, South Africa, Sri Lanka and India are in contention for the summit clash while the rest have been virtually eliminated.

    If we talk about Indian Cricket Team,  Pakistan’s series loss against England has given them a fair chance to play in the final. It’s now up to them how they will fare in the upcoming games.

    The Rohit Sharma-led side has six games remaining and for them to qualify, they need to win at least 5 of them. They will face Bangladesh in two Tests away and then will lock horns with Australia at home in four-match Test series.

    To find themselves in the final, they first need to win both games against Bangladesh and then beat Australia by 4-0 or 3-1 or 3-0 at home. Only then they can enter the top two of the points table. But if they lose more than one match their qualification will depend on the results of Sri Lanka vs New Zealand series.

    Currently, Indian Cricket Team is fourth on the points table of WTC 2023 with 6 wins from 12 games. They have 52 points to their name with 52.08%. They have lost four games as well whereas two have whereas have ended in a draw as well. However, 5 wins from now will take their percentage to 62.5.
