ICC WTC Points Table Updated Before AUS vs PAK 3rd Test: The WTC 2023-25 points table looked completely different a couple of matches ago than what it is today. The table toppers a couple of weeks ago are now in the sixth or seventh spot. On January 3 will kick start two important test matches for two South Asian Teams playing on two different continents. Here we are with the ICC WTC Points Table Updated Before the AUS vs PAK 3rd Test and SA vs IND 2nd Test.

India were on a tour of South Africa where they won a historic ODI series by a 2-1 scoreline and then they were scheduled to play a two-match Test series. India lost the first test played from December 26 in just three days by an innings and 32 runs. As they lost the first Test, now they cannot win the series in South Africa but the least they can do is to draw the series.

The eyes will be all directed towards the playing 11 in the second test as Shardul Thakur and Avesh Khan are available and fit to be included in the squad.

While Pakistan, on the other hand, still waiting for their first test win in Australia. They had a chance on 29 December to make it happen but it wasn’t meant to happen. Pakistan have lost the Test series already after lossing first two tests but they have a chance to put an end to the Australia jinx in test format.

Australia is having an incredible Test series, as they have made significant strides in the two matches against Pakistan. With 42 points and 50% PCT after the second test victory, Australia is now ranked third in the ICC WTC Points table 2023–25. They’ve played seven games and won four of them.

During the first test match against South Africa, India truly missed the middle-order contributions of Pujara and Rahane.

They had three matches with a winning PCT of 38.89%. India has 14 points after one victory, one defeat, and one tie.
