The resounding 317-run win over England in the second Test in Chennai on Tuesday propelled India to second in the World Test Championship standings issued by the ICC.

India, who had lost the first Test by 227 runs at the same venue, need to win one more and at least draw another to make it to the WTC final.

They were fourth on the table before Tuesday’s result.

Virat Kohli’s men are currently playing in their sixth series of the WTC cycle, having won 10 matches, lost four and drawn one.

Australia are at the third spot with 69.2 PCT and 332 points while England are fourth with 67.0 PCT and 442 points.
