According to recent reports, the World Test Championship 2021-23 is set to commence on June 8 at the Oval. Although there hasn’t been any official  update around the start of the second World Test Championship final by the International Cricket Council, the finale is set to take place in the starting week June 2023.

The World Test Championship 2021-23 will also see a reserve day as the inaugural championship final was interrupted  by frequent rain. The first day of the WTC Final 2019-21 was whitewashed with continuous downpour with the reserve day coming into place. New Zealand however secured a convincing win over India by eight wickets to clinch the first edition title.

 

India’s qualification scenario in WTC Final 2021-23

 

India is currently second in ICC Test Rankings having played 32 matches so far. The Men in Blue have 3,690 points, 22 more than No. 1 ranked Test team in Australia. If India clinches the four-match Test series against Australia by a 3-1 margin, they will end up at 62.5 per cent which will be greater than the maximum points. If India wins  by a margin of 3-0, they will end up at a better position to qualify for the WTC Final.

 

There is also another condition which remains in place. If India win the Test series by 1-0, 2-0, 2-1 (or) drawn by a 2-2 margin then one of the Test matches between SL & NZ must end in the draw for India to qualify for WTC 2023 finals. But if India end the Test series with result of 0-0, 0-1, 0-2, 0-3, 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 then they need to depend a lot on other teams' results in the upcoming series between NZ-SL & SA-WI game.
