India vs Australia highlights: India retain Border-Gavaskar Trophy, beat Australia by 6 wickets in 2nd Test
emphatic victory over Australia in the second Test in Delhi has had major ramifications on the race to reach this year’s ICC World Test Championship final.
The easy win saw India improve to a win-percentage of 64.06 percent, but their place in June’s decider at The Oval is still not locked in as they can still be overtaken by Sri Lanka should results go against them.
The race for the final is now down to three sides, with South Africa ruled out of reaching the final following India’s triumph in Delhi.
While Australia are in the box seat to reach the final, they are not quite over the line yet either.
Pat Cummins side can qualify by avoiding a 4-0 whitewash to India, while they still may qualify for the final should Sri Lanka fail to beat New Zealand 2-0 in their upcoming Test series.
