India lost the fifth and final Test match against England by 7 wickets in Birmingham. With this, the Men in Blue lost an opportunity to register a historic Test series win in England. While they were leading by 2-1 before the start of this game, their 7-wicket defeat against England implies the series ended in a 2-2 draw.

To make matters worse, Team India lost 2 points from the World Test Championship rankings due to slow over-rate which meant they slipped below Pakistan in the Points table. England, on the other hand, have won 4 Test matches on the trot (3 vs New Zealand and 5th Test vs India) by chasing 250-plus runs in 4th innings of a Test match.

This article will have a look at the 9 teams and how they are placed at the ICC WTC 2021-23 points table.
