WTC 2: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to make major changes in the point system for the second season of the World Test Championship (WTC). Now winning a match during the second season of the World Test Championship will get 12 points. The second round of the WTC will begin with a five-match Test series between India and England.
Four points will be awarded if the test is drawn
The member of the ICC Board said, "Earlier each series had the same 120 points, whether it was a two-Test series or a five-Test series. But in the next round each match will have the same number of points, with a maximum of 12 points per match." He further said that the ranking of the teams will be decided on the basis of percentage of points scored by the teams by playing the matches.
The board member said, "The goal is to try to simplify the point system and allow for meaningful comparisons of teams in any problem table, even if they have not played a different number of matches and series."
New Zealand was the winner of the first season
