The ongoing cycle of the highly celebrated ICC World Test Championship is in full flow where all the teams are engaging in gripping contests to finish in the top two of the points table. Clearly, India looks far ahead of others as the unit have been prolific in all their 7 games of the red-ball competition.
However, it is to be noted that 5 of those 7 matches were played at home, which obviously allowed them to play in familiar conditions. For this reason, many cricket pundits have demanded a different points system for home and away games of World Test Championship and the recent man to join this club is the former Pakistan cricketer Bazid Khan.
Commentating on the recently concluded Test match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka, the 38-year old said that it would be fair and wise to have a two-tier points system as this would swell the value of securing an overseas Test victory. Before him, former Sri Lankan all-rounder Russel Arnold also raised this point and so it remains to be seen how International Cricket Council (ICC) responds to this piece of suggestion.
