Top cricket match prediction: WTC 2021-23 points table: Latest qualifying scenarios for India, Australia, Sri Lanka and South Africa for the Test World Cup final

WTC 2021-23 Qualifying Scenario:
With four home tests remaining against Australia, India can move her PCT tally up to 68.05. A 3-1 victory over Australia would still be enough for a PCT of 62.5. This is higher than South Africa and Sri Lanka could achieve even if they won all their matches.

South Africa’s loss to Australia in her second Test in Melbourne increased India’s chances of reaching the final of the World Test Championship (WTC) for the second time in a row.

Protea had a PCT (Percentage of Points Earned) of 50, which put her down to fourth place, but Australia cemented the top spot with her PCT of 78.57. Meanwhile, India moved into second place after beating Bangladesh 2-0, with the PCT happy at 58.93. Australia Qualifying Scenario
Australia has five more tests left (one against South Africa and four against India). Win all 5 remaining games and your PCT will max out at 84.21. A team led by Pat Cummins is in such a strong position that even after beating South Africa in the third and beating the final Test, his 0-1 defeat to India in four games of his series, the PCT leads with his 68.42. Even if she loses 2-0 to India, Australia can reach the final with her PCT 66.66.

India Qualifying Scenario
With four home tests remaining against Australia, India can move her PCT tally up to her 68.05. A 3-1 win over Australia would still be enough for a PCT of 62.5. This is higher than South Africa and Sri Lanka could achieve even if they won all their matches. The 2v2 draw is also valid for India (PCT 56.94). Because South Africa need to beat Australia in the third Test and beat the West Indies at home to her 2-0 (PCT 60.00) to overtake India. For Sri Lanka to overtake South Africa and India in her 61.11 PCT, she needs a 2-0 win away to New Zealand.

About other teams
England ended the campaign with his PCT of 46.97 and is virtually uncontested for a place in the WTC Finals despite a recent comeback in the longest format. The West Indies only moved his PCT up to 50.00, not enough to secure a top two spot. Pakistan, New Zealand and Bangladesh are mathematically excluded from the WTC finals.
