India slipped to fourth position on the World Test Championship (WTC) points table after being docked two points by the ICC (International Cricket Council) for slow over-rate during its seven-wicket defeat against England in the rescheduled fifth Test at Edgbaston on Tuesday.

The ICC announced that India has also been fined 40 percent of its match fee for the offence. After the penalty, India is on 75 points (point percentage of 52.08), a rung below Pakistan (52.38%).

With six games still left for India in this WTC cycle - four against Australia at home in early 2023 and two against Bangladesh away later this year - it can reach a maximum PCT (percentage of points won) of 68.05.

The Rohit Sharma-led side's final hopes will, therefore, also hinge on the performances of South Africa and Pakistan in their upcoming tours.
