ICC WTC Points Table Updated: Bangladesh is set to lock horns against New Zealand in the two-game test series starting tomorrow (November 28). The NZ vs BAN 1st Test will be held at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium.

While most of the other teams have already begun their World Test Championship (WTC) campaigns, New Zealand and Bangladesh are two of the three teams that haven’t yet kickstarted theirs. The likes of India, Pakistan, West Indies, Australia, Sri Lanka and England are already off the mark.

New Zealand’s tour of Bangladesh 2023 includes three ODIs and two game test series. While New Zealand have convincingly won the ODI series 2-0, they will fancy their chances in the Test series as well in the spin-friendly conditions.

The Kiwis will brace themselves to continue their dominating run against Bangladesh, who have not managed to go past New Zealand in the test series so far. Twice the test series has been drawn, including the one held in 2021/22. But the Bangla Tigers will aim to go past the winning rope this time.

ICC World Test Championship (WTC) Points Table

Talking about the WTC rankings, Pakistan has so far claimed a 100 per cent winning record in the two games they have played in the ongoing cycle. Second-placed are the Indians, who have a 66.67 winning percentage, after playing a test series against West Indies.

Australia is ranked third in the ICC WTC Points table with 30 per cent winning followed by West Indies (16.67 per cent), England (15 per cent) and Sri Lanka (0.00 per cent).

The remaining three teams – New Zealand, Bangladesh and South Africa – are yet to play a test match after the completion of the last World Test Championship cycle which was clinched by Australia.
