Aiming to complete the World Test Championship cycle and host the final in June as per schedule, the ICC is contemplating splitting points for all those WTC bilateral series that had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic .
The matter is likely to come up for discussion at its Cricket Committee meeting next month, ESPNCricinfo has reported.
According to the website, while one of the options is splitting points, the other feasible option could be considering the points for only those matches that will actually be played by the end of March, 2021.
Based on those matches till March, the final positions on the points table could be computed based on the percentage of points the teams have won from the matches that they’ve contested.
As of now, each series carries 120 points and depending on the number of matches, two, three, four or five, the points are distributed.
