Thanks to their 2-0 sweep over West Indies, India continued to retain their substantial lead over others in the ICC Test Championship points table. In fact, they have at least twice as many points as New Zealand and Sri Lanka, tied at second place on points but separated on runs per wicket.
Australia and England won a Test each this month to level The Ashes. The wins also helped them occupy the next two places, followed by West Indies. South Africa, Pakistan, and Bangladesh are yet to play their first Tests.
