BAN VS IND: The three teams with a decent chance of making it to the championship match of the international ICC competition are Australia, South Africa, and team India. Rahul Dravid, the head coach of Team India, believes that the team is not planning too far ahead as it approaches the championship match of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2021–23 cycle. The first of the team’s two Test matches against Bangladesh is now taking place at Chattogram.
India must ensure both that they win the majority of the Test matches they still have left to play in the current World Test Championship cycle and that they don’t lose any of them. India will have a hard time reaching the World Test Championship final for a second straight year.
South Africa and Australia are their biggest rivals for that spot, even though Sri Lanka is now third on the WTC final table. The bulk of India’s six remaining games must be victories, and they must not lose any of them.
They assumed control of the first Test match against Bangladesh in Chattogram at the end of Day 2, beginning their victorious last-ditch effort for the job. The opponents are currently at 133/8 after India’s 404.

Rahul Dravid, the team’s head coach, said that they are simply taking each test as it comes and not making any extensive plans.
Dravid, who was speaking to BCCI.tv, said that the team must take each stage as it comes and cannot start by thinking about the sixth one before starting here. They first need to win the first game. The Team must play their best cricket to give themselves a chance. They must do the full show again when they get in Dhaka.
They will play four of their games at home against Australia. Australia will also host South Africa in a three-match Test series that gets underway on Saturday.
In particular, in Australia, which will have the challenging challenge of hosting India, the current top two might experience big decreases in victory percentage in the following months.

Since 2015, Australia has not been able to overcome India in a Test series, either at home or away. Dravid advised KL Rahul and Co to concentrate on this game first before watching how the cards fall and determining what they must do in the series against Australia.
The three teams with a decent chance of making it to the championship match of the international ICC competition are Australia, South Africa, and team India.
India’s next red-ball assignment after the Bangladesh series is against Australia, and it will be crucial for their qualifying. Prior to playing India in February 2023, Pat Cummins’ Australia is preparing for their match against the Proteas.
