The highest body of cricket has already released the schedule for the second edition of the WTC. India and New Zealand faced each other in the final of the first edition, in which Kane Williamson’s Kiwi team won the title by defeating Virat Kohli. Indian captain Kohli is now very excited about the second edition of the WTC. The World Team will begin its campaign in the second edition of the Test Championship with a five-Test series against England from August 4.

Not only the final, but the first edition of the championship, we have seen the players’ determination. Cricket fans were also very supportive of us. I’m sure they are eagerly awaiting the second edition again. We come out with new energy from our series against England. We hope we do our best to make the fans happy this time.

On Wednesday, the ICC announced a new point system for the second edition of the WTC. In this, the team gets 12 points to win each match. No matter how many matches the series has, it does not affect the score. The team ranking is based on percentage points as before. Winning the game is 12 points and 100 percent off points, six points and 50 percent off points for the tie, four points and 33.33 percent points for the draw. At the same time, if he loses, nothing will fall on the team.
