What is ICC World Test Championship?

ICC World Test Championship is a nine team global tournament involving a two year competition that started from 01 Aug. 2019.

Old System

Previously, that is from 2003 to Sept.2019 the award was given every year to the top ranked team in tests over a year. Teams with more series win earned more points, hence high ranks. This system has been overhauled now, where teams earn points per match rather than per series.

New System

In new system each test is given particular points for a win, loss and draw. Teams with more test match win would earn more points,does not matter whether they win more number of test series. The teams are ranked on the percentage of points won during the course of two years.

Finally, after the cut off date two top ranked teams play the final decider for world test championship

First world test championship (under new system) for the 2019-2021 was won by New Zealand.

How ICC World Test Championship works?

If you have read the New System of Test Championship, you must have got the idea, how the system works. It works on the basis on points distribution system. Uniform points are assigned to every test match of the series.

Clearly, with new system of points table, number of matches would decide the percentage of points gained by a team, rather than the number of series played.

Even if any match of a series is cancelled, it would not affect the points table of a team. This means a comparison of teams on their relative performance in matches at any point of time.
