The Indian cricket team was denied a chance to claim full points following a complete washout on Monday after the second match of the two-match Test series against the West Indies ended in a draw. As a result, India managed to score 16 points out of a possible 24, taking their PCT (percentage of points won) to 66.67 percent. As a result, they are currently second in the World Test Championship (WTC) 2023-25 ​​points table behind Pakistan, who have 100 per cent since winning the first Test against Sri Lanka. On the other hand, West Indies are currently fifth in the points table with 4 points for the draw, which has increased their PCT to 16.67 percent.

India have two overseas tours to South Africa, where defending World WTC champions Australia are lined up, and a home series against England.

India clinched the two-match series 1-0 against the West Indies on Monday after heavy rain hit the fifth and final day of the second Test in Port of Spain.


India, who won the first Test by an innings and 141 runs to take a 1-0 lead, declared their second innings at 181 for 2 on day four, setting West Indies a target of 365 runs.

However, Pemari did not allow any play on the fifth day and the Test was eventually abandoned.
West Indies are 76 for the loss of two wickets in the second innings on Day 4 due to rain. Jermaine Blackwood (20) and Tagnarine Chanderpaul (24) were dismissed in the middle order at the end of the fourth day.
