The 2021–2023 ICC World Test Championship was the second edition of the ICC World Test Championship of Test cricket.[1][2][3] It started on 4 August 2021[4] and finished with the Final on 7–11 June 2023 at The Oval, London, played between Australia and India.[5]

The five-match Pataudi Trophy between England and India, started 4 August 2021, started the second cycle of the World Test Championship.[6][7][8] That series, along with the Ashes in December 2021, were the only two series comprising five Tests in the second WTC cycle.[9][10][11] New Zealand were the defending champions.[12][13] In September 2022, the International Cricket Council (ICC) announced that the final of this edition of the World Test Championship would be played at The Oval, London in June 2023.[14][15] That final saw Australia win by 209 runs, thus becoming the only team to win all ICC titles.[16][17] [18]

Format

The tournament was played over two years, with 69 matches over 27 series scheduled for the league stage from which the top two teams advanced to a final.[19] Each team was scheduled to play six series, with three at home and three away. Each series consisted of two to five Test matches. Each participant played between 12 and 22 matches.[20] Each match was scheduled for a duration of five days.

Points system

The points system was changed from the previous edition. In this edition, 12 points would be available each match regardless of how many matches there were in a series. A win was worth all 12 points, a tie was worth 6 points each, a draw was worth 4 points each, and a loss was worth 0 points. A team that was behind the required over rate at the end of a match would have one point deducted for each over it was behind. As in the previous edition, teams were ranked in the league table based on percentage of total points won out of total points contested.[21][22][23]

Schedule

The schedule for the World Test Championship was announced by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on 20 June 2018, as part of the 2018–2023 Future Tours Programme.[27] Rather than being a full round-robin tournament in which everyone played everyone else equally, each team played only six of the other eight, as in the previous cycle.[28]
