Australia Consolidate Second Spot in World Test Championship, India Comfortably on Top

Following their 2-0 series win over Pakistan at home, Australia strengthened their hold on the second spot in the ICC World Test Championship Table, but are still a fair way behind India who lead comfortably with 360 points.

Australia picked up all the 120 points on offer against Pakistan, and are now with a total of 176 points. Before the start of the series, they had 56 points after their five match series against England ended in a 2-2 draw.

Pakistan, on the other hand, are without any points after suffering a loss in both their opening games of the Championship. However, they have a chance to get off the mark when they host Sri Lanka for a two-Test series in December 2019.

World Test Championship

Australia won the second Test by an innings and 48 runs, after Nathan Lyon led the charge with a five-wicket haul. Pakistan tried their best to make Australia bat again, but were all-out for just 239 shortly after the dinner break in the day-night Test.

India, Australia and New Zealand make up the top three in the table, with Bangladesh, Pakistan and South Africa occupying the bottom three positions.
