Ind in World Test Championship (WTC)

Recommended Posts

WTC begins post WC19

 

Ind's schedule 

 

2019

  • July: In WI (2 Tests)
  • Oct: vs SA (3 Tests)
  • Nov: vs BD (2 Tests)

 

2020

  • Feb: In NZ (2 Tests)
  • Nov: In Aus (4 Tests)

 

2021

  • Jan: vs Eng (5 Tests) 
  • June: Final (TBD)

 

 

To have a shot at the title, winning every game at home is paramount as we cannot afford to leave points on the table 

 

BCCI and TM would need to start planning

For Ind

  • 3 series in Ind (SA, BD and Eng)
  • 1 in WI
  • 1 in Aus
  • 1 in NZ 

 

Other major teams: 

  • Eng plays Aus at home
  • SA plays Eng at home
  • SA plays Aus at home 

 

Takeaways

  • Ind playing Aus in Aus gets neutralized by Aus playing in Eng and SA, the two teams we play at home  
  • SA plays both Eng and Aus at home

IIRC,

  • Each series is worth 120 points. Therefore, the value of each test = 120 points / number of tests in a series 
  • Tie = 50% of the points allocated 
  • Draw = 33% of the points allocated 
  • Therefore, no dead rubbers as far as points are considered 

 

It would help to have a longer away series, as it would allow visiting teams to acclimatize .... Ind plays a couple of tests in both NZ and WI so have to adjust quickly there

  • Promising signs but now we have to win every game at home 
  • I hope that law of averages does not work against us at home and we lose games/series vs Eng and SA :hitler:

Yes thats a bit absurd playing Australia twice in 2 years and not playing them at home

Teams play 3 home and 3 away series during the period (entire schedule is listed in one of the posts in this thread) .... Could have tried touring BD and playing Aus at home (as we would have toured in 2018/19 season). Recently, we toured Eng and SA as well, whom we play at home

Man this going to boring stuff. If the championship spans multiple years do people even remember what happened 1-2 years ago. This is setup for failure from beginning.

There would be a points / rankings table :dontknow:  .... one of the posts here talks about how points are allocated

Imagine Odi World Cup spanning multiple years. People will loose interest. This looks like a gimmick not viable.

The is is more like regular test series that we would play but with WTC attached to it 

 

Whom we play the series with, iirc, is decided by us .... From the looks of it, it should be 6 series (3H + 3A) in the given period, which we would play anyways
