After facing embarrassing loss in 3rd Test against Australia How India can still qualify for World Test Championship Final?

In the recently completed Test in Indore, Team India was humiliated by Australia, losing by 9 wickets.

Australia’s victory in the 3rd Test of the series paved the way for them to advance to the World Test Championship finals as the first finalist.

Three teams, including Sri Lanka, South Africa, and India, are in the running in contention for other spots.

As fans of Indian cricket team, you will be concerned about the Men in Blue scenario for the other World Test Championship finalists?

Let’s look at all possibilities in detail:

As Australia have already qualified after winning a match and even if they lose the last match they would qualify based on their points.

India needs to win the last match of the series in order to qualify  as the other finalist of World Test Championship final.

India currently have a cumulative winning percentage of close to 63 if they manage to win the series by a score of 3-1.

India must rely on the game between Sri Lanka and New Zealand if they are able to rescue a draw in the last game of the series against Australia.

It won’t be simple for them to defeat the Black Caps in their home conditions because the series between these two teams will take place in New Zealand.

Australia, India, and Sri Lanka all have percentages that are relatively close to 66.67, 64.06, and 53.33, respectively.

India, the other candidate for the WTC, must not be the only thing we consider.

Given India’s stellar track record at home, they are favoured to defeat Australia in the final Test match.

It would be intriguing to observe who prevails in this matchup between these two powerhouses because it will be the final contest between them at Narendra Modi Stadium in Gujarat.

India has already retained Border-Gavaskar Trophy with a score of 2-1 and they would be looking to comfortably win the series by 3-1.

Overall the equation for India is simple they need to win last match of the series to qualify as the other finalist of World Test Championship.
