Australia won all three Tests against Pakistan at the SCG, securing a 3-0 clean sweep. This victory has propelled Australia to the top of the WTC points table, surpassing India. Australia has now won five out of eight games in this cycle, accumulating 54 points with a points percentage of 56.25. India, previously at the top, has slipped to second place with 26 points and a 54.16 points percentage after winning two out of four matches.
South Africa, initially at the top following a dominant performance, has dropped to third place after their defeat in Cape Town, resulting in a points percentage of 50 percent. Meanwhile, Pakistan’s underwhelming series in Australia has pushed them down to sixth place, with a points percentage of 36.66 and two wins out of five matches.
Australia, the current World Test Champions, will face West Indies in a two-match Test series later this month, while India is preparing for a five-Test home series against England starting on January 25 in Hyderabad. Despite England’s commendable performance in the Ashes, their overall points tally remains at nine due to a 19-point deduction for their slow over-rate. South Africa will take on New Zealand in a two-match Test series in February, although they have opted for a second-string squad for this particular encounter.
