However, the rain helped Pakistan to reach the top of the points table. The Men in Green have a 100% win record in the WTC cycle so far. The team captained by Babar Azam are currently engaged in a 2-match Test series against Sri Lanka. They defeated Sri Lanka in the first Test by a margin of four wickets.
Australia and England are in 3rd and 4th spots respectively
They are also in a great position in the 2nd Test already after bowling Sri Lanka out for 166 in the first innings of the second Test. Pakistan put themselves in a strong position by scoring 145 runs while losing only 2 wickets on the first day of the match itself. Australia are in the 3rd sport with 26 points in 4 matches with a win percentage of 54.17.
Australia started their WTC 2023-25 campaign in Ashes 2023 against England. The Kangaroos won the first 2 Tests. But England made a remarkable comeback in the 3rd Test and won the match. With this win, they also opened their WTC points account. The 4th Test ended in a draw due to rain and they are currently placed in the 4th place 14 in 4 matches with a win percentage of 29.17.
