How is percentage point calculated?
In the World Test Championship, the percentage points of a team simply means how many points a team has scored out of the maximum points available to it. If we look at it from India’s point of view in the current cycle of WTC (2023-35), then Team India has played a total of 6 Tests so far.

The team gets a maximum of 12 points for winning a match. In such a situation, India could have scored maximum 72 points by winning all 6 tests. But, so far India has won 3 tests, lost 2 and one match has been drawn. India currently has 38 points in its account. A penalty of 2 points has also been imposed on India.

India will come on top by defeating England in the third test
If you want to calculate the percentage points of India or any other team, then multiply the total points of the team by 100 and divide it by the maximum points, then the percentage points will be obtained.

If India beats England in the next Test, its points will increase from 38 to 50 points. Because winning a match gives 12 points. In such a situation, if India’s total points i.e. 50 are multiplied by 100 and divided by the maximum points it gets by winning all the matches, then the percentage point will be obtained.

This means that if 5000 is divided by the total 84 points obtained for 7 wins, then India’s percentage points will become 59.25. In such a situation, India is in the current cycle of the World Test Championship in Australia (55.00 percentage points)Will come in first place.
