NZ win by an innings and 12 runs.

Now at 300 points above England's 292.

 

Kudos to the Kiwis.  With a total population that is half of Bengaluru's, they are quietly but certainly putting their stamp on world cricket.  Not to mention they the rockstars of the rugby world too.  And they seem like a bunch of decent, down-to-earth guys (although I must temper this with my memory of Ish Sodhi and another Kiwi player's derogatory comments about Indians a few years ago).

Man hopefully Kiwis don't get to Lords..  What a fluke would that be.  They'll get beaten to a pulp by Aussies in lords.  We will at least make things interesting. 

Need BD to whitewash them if their tour happens. 

Kiwis play a lot better in England than India does.  Their swing attack could wreck havoc on Australia.

1 is enough, if we can 4-nil England 

 

NZ will have 7/11 wins = 63%

 

India will have 12/17 wins = 70%

 

 

That's not how the % is calculated.  It's based on percentage of competed points, each NZ test against Poyz is worth 60 points.  Each of India's remaining seven tests is worth 30 points.

 

But even using the % of points contested, it still works out that IND would need to whitewash ENG and steal one of the last three in AUS.  That would put NZ at 0.700 and IND at 0.708.  The other way IND can get in is to win four and draw three of the remaining matches.

I think we will get a good idea of how things stand after the results of the boxing day Tests.  Australia play India and NZ play Pakistan on Dec 26. In the most likely scenario of Pakistan winning the Test and India losing the Test, both India and NZ would be tied at 360 points each. 

 

From there onwards , India will have 60 points ( 2 Tests ) remaining to play for against Australia and NZ will also have 60 points to play for against Pakistan. 

 

If  NZ indeed whitewash Pakistan they will become Top Ranked team in the table with 420  points, while Australia even after whitewashing India will have 416 points.

Not likely to happen. NZ beat Pak 2-1 in UAE 2 years back. Pak has a great record in NZ but since 2011 WC NZ has dominated the rivalry, one or two blips notwithstanding. 

 

This NZ side is damn good at home, even beat Eng last year. Only Aussies can be termed favorites in their backyard.

 Typo. I meant in most likely scenario of NZ winning the  first Test and India losing the  second Test both India as well as NZ will be on 360 points each. 

 

Backing NZ to Top the Test Championship Table with 420 points at  end of the series, leaving Australia at No 2.
