It said on Cricinfo that Ganguly wants England's series against India in the new year to go ahead. He would like it to be played in India rather than the UAE even though India is in a lot of strife with covid 19 at the moment.

to be honest, and some fans of club football were wary of international trips and Covid, they'd be kept away, almost wrapped in cotton wool and unless the fans decide to chance it and turn up to the ground(s), they'd be as safe as anyone in any country.

the whole football fear was just not very well thought through, all the cases with (England) footballers I'm sure were either domestic, went to a party they shouldn'a - and with some foreigns they went home when they shouldn'a, but few reports of cases contracted overseas - well not that I've seen confirmed X has tested positive whilst on trip with club

They've changed how the table is calculated, it's a percentage now of total points played for. Australia look guaranteed for the final, and if they were to beat India 4-0 it could give NZ a big chance of making the final instead.

Apparently the new ICC Chair Greg Barclay has said that the World Test Championship is 'not fit for purpose'. It is likely to be shelved after the Final next year.

I don't think this surprises anyone.

India's win all but guarantees them a spot in the final, assuming they don't lose to England.

NZ are now above Australia who will need to win at least 2-0 in SA (3 Test series) to move back above the Kiwis.

Hopefully NZ qualify for the Final and win (assuming they can remember how to get on a plane and travel to play Test Cricket), thus outlining what a complete farce this idea was and consigning it to the realms of cricketing history.

Could revamp the format, like a football CL structure with weaker teams playing home and away to reach the group except the group just be home and away against a seeded draw for QFs and SFs

Even if say England vs Australia were a series both sides want and draws might deny no one says they can't play bilateral series outside of a championship.

A Championship without proper structure would always struggle and especially during a pandemic. I don't doubt some teams were happy for it to fail and did little to avoid that, turn it into a dynamic money spinner or it will always play second fiddle to eg T20 domestic leagues

Just seen a table that outlines all the scenarios from the remaining two series (India/England, SA/Aus) as to who qualifies for the Final. Looks like NZ are all but guaranteed a place (hence why they've signed up for 2 Tests in England in advance). They would need minimum of 2-0 victories for both India and Australia not to qualify.

England could qualify for the Final with any win in India (I know, unlikely) so long as Aus don't win by 2-0.

Really ? I thought we were out of it.

So what you are saying is that we don't cheer on the Ozzies ?

Personally, I'd like to see an India/Australia Final as they've been the best 2 teams for the last 2 years, and seeing Paine coming up against the Indians again will be very entertaining.

But if England did win in India, then only an Aussie win of 2-0 or more could prevent us playing in the Final.

To be honest, I'd just like to see any two teams that aren't NZ as I feel they've cheated the system in all but qualifying.

Nah - I want England to qualify and win.

Would be pretty funny to beat NZ in a final at lords again. Preferably by some arbitrary boundary count or something. (What happens if it’s a draw btw?)

Sir Virgs is our resident expert on the intricacies of deciding first class finals at Lords that end in a draw.

According to what I've read England need to win 4-0 in India to qualify.

It's 3-0 to guarantee a spot, but it's also dependent on what occurs in SA too. And if Aus didn't win by at least 2-0, then any England victory would mean they qualify.

If that were to happen, then for all the gnashing of teeth re the WTC youd say an England India final would be fair enough. Would seem fairer if it was at a neutral venue though.
