Dubai: India on Tuesday remained in contention to make the final of the ICC World Test Championship after completing an an impressive victory over England in the second Test in Chennai to draw level in the four-match series.
The victory in the second Test lifted India to second position with 69.7 percentage points on the points table but they cannot afford to lose another match as they need to win 2-1 or 3-1 to qualify for the final of the maiden edition of the championship.
England, who led the table after winning the opening Test, slipped to fourth spot with 67.0 percentage points. They can still qualify, but for that they must win both remaining matches of the series against India.
New Zealand have already qualified for the final while Australia can qualify ahead of India and England if the ongoing series is drawn or if England win 2-1.
The West Indies have moved up to sixth position after their 2-0 series win over Bangladesh, who are yet to register a point.
