ICC WTC Points Table Updated After IND Vs RSA 1st Test | South Africa On TOP

World Test Championship 2023-25

ICC WTC Points Table Updated after IND vs RSA 1st Test: South Africa started off the 2-match Test Series against India on a winning note as they managed to defeat The Men in Blue by an innings and 32 runs in the Boxing Day Test match at Centurion. This win against India means that the Proteas have made their way to the top of the WTC 2023-25 cycle points table with a points percentage of 100% as the South Africans managed to get all 12 points from the 1st test match.

Opener Dean Elgar’s knock of 185 runs and Marco Jansen’s fighting knock of 84 runs allowed the Proteas to post 408 runs on the board and took a lead of 163 runs, which was enough for the South Africans as the bowling trio of Kagiso Rabada, Marco Jansen, and Nandre Burger did not allow the Indian batters to settle down at the crease and managed to all out the Men in Blue for 131 runs and helped the Proteas win the 1st test.

India, who were at the top of the WTC points table, have fallen to the 5th position with a points percentage of 44.44%. The Men in Blue are ahead of Australia in the overall standings, but that might change if the Aussies manage to defeat Pakistan in the second test match.

The Men in Blue have managed to win just a single test match in SENA Nations in the previous 2 years, with the last win coming in the Boxing Day Test at Centurion in 2021 against South Africa. Since then, India has lost 3 matches in South Africa and 2 matches in England, including the 2023 WTC final against Australia.

India were not good with the bat at all as Yashasvi Jaiswal, Rohit Sharma, and Shubman Gill struggled against the South African pacers, while except Bumrah and Siraj, no other bowler troubled the batters of South Africa. KL Rahul’s century in the 1st inning and Virat’s fighting knock of 76 runs were not enough to prevent India from suffering a humiliating defeat in the 1st test against South Africa.

The Proteas lead the series 1-0, and India’s dream of winning their first test series in South Africa will not come true this time.
