The ICC has made this big mess for the second edition of the World Test Championships

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has made significant changes to the second edition of the World Test Championship (WTC). The second edition of the WTC will begin with a five-match Test series between India and England. In the tie, the dual teams get six points and the draw gets four points each. ICC Interim CEO Jeff Allardyce said this month that the point system would be changed for the media.

A member of the ICC board told PTI, “Before then, each series had a single score of 120, which could be two Test series or five Test series. In the next version, each match will have a maximum of 12 points. Changes in the scoring system will be approved at the upcoming ICC Chief Executive Committee meeting, although they may not play a different number of matches and series.

Aside from the India-England series in the second edition, which ends in June 2023, this year’s Ashes series is just a five-match series. Australia’s India tour next year will be the only series of four Test matches in the upcoming edition. Each of the nine teams will play a total of six series, three at home and three on the opponent’s field as they did last season. New Zealand beat India in the final of the first edition of the WTC. According to ESPNcricinfo, in the second edition, England will play 21 more Test matches, followed by India (19), Australia (18) and South Africa (15). New Zealand, West Indies and Sri Lanka will play 13 matches while Pakistan will play 14 Tests.
