The Australian team may face a major setback for the ICC World Test Championship. Recently, he postponed the 3-Test series against South Africa. The South Africa board complained to the ICC about this. He has demanded that the Australia board be fined and his Test Championship points deducted.
The revelation was made by the Australian Media Institute Sydney Morning Herald. If the ICC cuts points based on this complaint, then Australia will not be able to reach the final of the Test Championship.
India-Australia battle for finals
Actually, the New Zealand team has already reached the final of the Test Championship. England is completely out. For the second finalist, there is a contest between Team India and Australia. In the event of winning the last Test or draw against England, the Indian team will ensure the final ticket. If England win, Australia will get a ticket.
If Australia’s points are reduced based on South Africa’s complaint, the India team will get the final ticket despite the loss to England. The final will be played on 18 June at the Lords of England.
Independent panel will hear the complaint
The complaint of South Africa has been referred by the ICC to the Independent Panel. The Test Championship prescribes 120 points for a series, which are distributed based on the match of the series. This panel can take 2 types of decisions. The first is to give 120 points to South Africa. In such a situation, Australia will be out of the race for the final of the Test Championship. The second is that the series can also be given an option to have a neutral venue. In such a situation, both boards can meet and decide the neutral venue.
