ICC World Test Championship – How It Works

  • All nine teams play six WTC series, three at home and three away.
  • All WTC series must be between two and five Tests in length
  • There are 120 points available per series, split evenly between each match, so 24 per match in a five-Test series up to 60 per match in a two-match series.
  • Each win is worth full points, a tie half and a draw gets one third, as below:
Tests in series Win Draw Tie Loss
Two Tests 60 20 30 0
Three Tests 40 13 ⅓ 20 0
Four Tests 30 10 15 0
Five Tests 24 8 12 0
