Sports Desk. Friends, let us tell you that the ICC on Wednesday officially confirmed that India vs England (India Vs England) will win 12 points on a draw during the second round of the WTC, starting with the 5-match series in August. Four points and 6 points will be awarded if the match is tied. The ICC further said that the percentage of points won will be used to determine the places in the 2021-23 cycle.
Friends, earlier 120 points were fixed for each test series, which created inequality because in a series of 2 test matches, the team would get 60 points for winning one test while winning a match in a series of 5 test matches would get 60 points only. Got 24 marks. Friends, only last month, it was said in a report that ICC is going to introduce a new points system for the second round of WTC. ICC Acting Chief Executive Geoff Allardice said that the changes have been made to simplify the points system, taking lessons from last year’s disruption.
Friends, for your information, let us tell you that Allardice said in the ICC statement that we received feedback that the previous points system needs to be simplified. The Cricket Committee took this into account when proposing a new standardized system for each match. The second cycle of the WTC, which ends in June 2023, consists of only two series of 5 Test matches. These include the India-England series, apart from the Ashes series between Australia and England to be held this year.
