  • New Zealand had gained the maximum of 120 points from the two-Test series against Pakistan, taking their points tally to 420 out of a possible 600 after having also beaten West Indies and India by the same margin in their two previous series.
  • The Black Caps are placed at the third spot with 0.700 percentage points won, the factor that determines the final placings rather than total points won, following a change to the points system owing to the Covid-19 disruption.

CONCLUSION

  • India are placed second with 70.2 percentage points won while Australia stand at the top with 73.8 percentage points.
  • The top two sides at the end of the league on percentage points will contest the final, currently scheduled to be played at The Lord’s in June this year.
  • With the series tied at 1-1, Australia and India will now face each other in the final Test beginning Friday at The Gabba in Brisbane.
