ICC World Test Championship – Draw in India vs England 4th Test will take India to WTC Finals: The 4th Test Match of India vs England series starts on Thursday. Virat Kohli’s team India will just need a draw to win the 4 match test series. And the draw in the 4th test can also book India’s place in the WTC Finals.
New Zealand has already booked their place for the WTC Finals and India’s thumping 10-wicket win against England in the third Test had knocked out England from the WTC Finals race.
However, England can still play spoilsport to India’s plan if they upset India in the 4th Test Match. In such a scenario India will be knocked out and Australia will qualify for WTC Finals
