Asked about India’s fourth place finish at the World Test Championships, Team India captain said, “Nothing has changed for us. If you are on lockdown suddenly and the rules change, nothing is out of your control. There is only one thing in our control and we do it on the field. We don’t care about what’s going on in and out of the table. Some things have no logic. You can discuss this for hours, but what’s under your control is playing good cricket on the field and that’s our focus.

Frustrated by the defeat, Captain Virat Kohli knows what he said

Notably, the rules of the ICC World Test Championship were changed due to the corona virus. The championship ranking base has been removed from the ICC point table to a winning percentage. As such, the higher the winning percentage, the higher the chances of a team rising. Initially, ICC rules also hurt Team India and the team lost first place. In any event, England must beat England in this Test series to reach the final of the World Test Championship.
