India draw sees Pakistan sitting alone at the top of the World Test Championship standings

Pakistan at Top of ICC World Test Championship

Pakistan sitting alone at the top of the ICC World Test Championship Standings after pace-setting India drew in the second Test against the West Indies in Trinidad.

The entire final day was wiped out in the Caribbean, meaning India had to settle for a share of the spoils in the final Test of their series against the West Indies which saw them relinquish their 100 per cent win-loss record in the new World Test Championship campaign.

Pakistan are the only team with an unblemished record during the new cycle following their four-wicket win over Sri Lanka in Galle and Babar Azam’s side are on course to maintain that perfect start to their campaign after they dismissed their Asian rivals for just 166 on the opening day of the second Test in Colombo.

Pakistan then ran to 145/2 from just 28.3 overs late in the game and will be keen to build a huge lead over Sri Lanka and maintain their unbeaten status this campaign.

While India is yet to record a loss in the new cycle, their tie with West Indies saw them drop to second in the updated standings and their win-loss percentage dropped from 100 per cent to 66.67.

They hold second place in the standings, with Australia (third), England (fourth) and the West Indies (fifth) the other teams to have already featured in the new 2023-25 World Test Championship cycle.
