Canberra: Aaron Finch-led Australia topped the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League point table after winning the three-match series against India 2-1.
Host Australia defeated India 2–1 and consequently topped the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League with 40 points. India managed to win the third and final ODI by 13 runs and as a result, the team opened their tally in the ODI Super League.
India are sixth with nine points. The team must have 10 points to win the third ODI, but the Kohli-led side lost by one point due to the slow rate.
Initially, the release of the ICC imposed a penalty of up to 20 per cent of the match fee for every Indian player for the slow rate in the first ODI against Australia, but there was no mention of a point cut.
However, in the latest updated standings of the ODI Super League, India are sixth with nine points.
According to the ICC’s terms of play: “At the end of the match, if the over-rate calculation determines that a team bowls one or more overs less than the minimum over-rate requirement, the team deducts one point per over.
Australia defeated England 2-1 in a series of 13-team championships introduced earlier this year to create a context for one-day cricket and determine seven straight qualifiers for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023
Although India had hopes of becoming a host, this opportunity had to be used for long-term preparation. England are in second place with World Cup winners 30 points. They defeated Ireland 2-1 in the opening series of the championship before losing to five-time world champions Australia.
Pakistan are also on 20 points after a 2-1 series win over Zimbabwe, who scored 10 points for the Super Over in the final ODI in Rawalpindi.
