That is, if there are 4 tests in a series, then 30 points for each match and if there are 2 matches in a series, then 60 points for each match. But, this time it will not happen. The ICC has said that every match in the second cycle will have an equal number of points. Apart from this, the rule of percentage point will be applicable. That is, on the basis of how many points a team is able to score out of the total available matches, its position in the table will be prepared.

Accordingly, India may have to score equal points in 14 matches to reach the final. A lower number of wins can be made up by a draw. A draw will fetch half the points compared to a win. No points will be awarded in case of loss.
