India can’t afford too many slip-ups in the away series against Australia and the next home assignment against England as the race for the World Test Championship (WTC) final is reaching its climax.

The Indians are in third place in the ICC Test rankings with 114 rating points.

Australia, with 116.46, is followed closely by New Zealand (116.37).

If New Zealand beats Pakistan 2-0 in the two-Test series, which starts on December 26, it will finish on 420 points from five series.

India will then need five wins or four wins and three draws in its last eight Tests — against Australia and England — to qualify.
