The team of New Zealand has recently become the number one team in Test cricket. New Zealand took the first place in the rankings, overtaking India and Australia. However, the Indian team can also reach number one position in the Test rankings.
The rankings will be announced once again after the Border-Gavaskar series between India and Australia ends. The Test series between New Zealand and Pakistan will conclude before the series between India and Australia. For this reason, fans can see a lot of changes in the test rankings in the coming weeks. Next month, any team from India, Australia and New Zealand can achieve the number one ranking. Let us tell you how the Indian team can become the number one team in Tests.
How can the Indian team come at number one position in Tests?
The Indian team is currently ranked third in the Test rankings with 114 points. Australia and New Zealand are ahead of India. However, if the Indian team wins both the remaining Test matches against Australia, then it will come first in the ICC Test rankings. Apart from this, he will also retain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
If the Indian team wins the 3–1 Test series against Australia, then it will be 119 points. However, if Pakistan defeated New Zealand in the second Test, then if India wins the series by only 2-1, then it will be enough. At the same time, even if New Zealand won the series 1–0, India would have to win 2–1 against Australia to become the number one Test team.
