The maiden edition of the much-awaited World Test Championship (WTC) is all set to begin with the five-match Ashes series between England and Australia from August 1 at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham.

The cricket‘s oldest rivalry will be followed by the two-match Test series between Sri Lanka and World Cup 2019 runner-ups New Zealand from August 14. Subsequently, India will open their campaign at the World Test Championship with a two-match Test series against West Indies at the latter‘s home turf starting from August 22. 

A total of top nine Test teams in the world namely Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka and the West Indies will be featuring in 71 matches across 27 series, played over two years. 

The top two sides will be playing the final of the ICC World Test Championship in June 2021 in the United Kingdom.

With points available for every single game, each team will play three home and three away series. Each series counts for 120 points, distributed over the number of matches in a series. For example, a two-match series will mean 60 points for each Test while a three-match series will give 40 points to each Test match. A tie will be 50% of the points available, whilst a draw will be a 3:1 points ratio.
