ICC WTC Points Table

ICC WTC Points Table: The stage is all set for the 5th and last contest of the five-match test series in the England Tour of India 2024. The hosts India are set to lock horns against visitors England in the 5th test in one of the best picturesque venues HPCA Stadium, Dharamshala, and this encounter is crucial for Team India keeping WTC standings in view. Here is the ICC WTC Points Table Updated before the IND vs ENG 5th test.

India have already won the test series even though they were on the losing corner in the first Test of the series. The well-planned combination of resilience and persistence from the Indian squad was the key against the indomitable England Cricket team.

Ben Stokes found confidence in his team’s improvement throughout this lengthy five-Test series, which began in the southern region of the nation in late January. His team had different expectations coming into India, was inexperienced, and had a moniker Bazball hanging over their necks.

In the historical setting of India, it is not unusual to begin a series with a loss and win it. In terms of perspective, Rohit Sharma had the luxury of looking back on a challenging yet fruitful series and labeling it as one of his team’s “comebacks” as he has done now following the Hyderabad Test defeat. On the other hand, the graph showed a different direction for England.

India will again look towards young faces like Jaiswal, Jurel, Sarfaraz, and others as they have looked promising in the series. The good news for India in the final test is that Jasprit Bumrah is back in the squad.

England have carried out their recently acquired tradition of announcing their playing 11 a day before the match starts and Ollie Robinson made the way in for Mark Wood for the final test match of the series. They have chose to stick with the two spinners and two pacers concept which wasn’t looking very effective in the fourth test. Below is the England’s announced Playing 11:
