WTC Updated Points Table after West Indies defeated Australia | WTC Latest Standings | World Test Championship (2023-2025) Points table

WTC Latest Standings: The West Indies have just done the unimaginable, as they have pulled off an unbelievable comeback in the second and final test match of the two-match test series between Australia and the West Indies by defeating the hosts by eight runs at Brisbane’s mighty Gabba Stadium. Shamar Joseph (7-68), who was cleared by doctors following a possible stress fracture on his right toe, tore apart the whole Australian batting unit, taking his maiden seven-wicket haul in Australia’s second innings. The Windies also became the first team in cricket history to upset defending World Cup champions Australia in a pink-ball test.

The Men in Maroon’s victory in the second test ensured that the series ended in a 1-1 draw between the two sides as the visitors avoided being whitewashed in the two-match test series. The Windies got the opportunity to bat first in the second test, as they scored 311 runs in their first inning. In reply, the hosts posted a total of 289-9 (declared) in their first inning. Later, the Men in Maroon were all out for 192 runs thanks to the brilliant bowling efforts of seamer Josh Hazlewood (3-23) and off-spinner Nathan Lyon (3-42). Mitchell Starc and Cameron Green picked up 1 wicket each as the hosts were asked to chase 216 runs, which looked pretty easy for the Aussies.

But the duo of Shamar Joseph (7-68) and Alzarri Joseph (2-62) didn’t allow the Aussie batters to settle down at the crease as their terrific bowling efforts allowed the visitors to win their first test match on Australian soil since 1997.
