India knocked England out of contention from the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final in June with their 10-wicket triumph in the day-night third Test here which propelled the hosts to the top of the standings.
India now have to either win or draw the final game here starting March 4 to claim the right to take on New Zealand at the Lord’s. The Black Caps have already qualified and are placed second in the latest list.
