India and England have been fined and docked two points each from their ICC world Test championship 2021-2023 tally for slow over-rate in the Nottingham Test. After the deduction of two points, both teams have equal points in the ICC World Test Championship points table heading into the second Test at Lords. After the points deduction, the ICC also imposed a 40 per cent fine of their match fee for the reason of slow over-rate.

The first Test between England and India ended in a draw at Trent Bridge as a result of constant rain on the final day. Both the teams got really disappointed on the final day as the game was cancelled without even playing a single bowl. According to the International Cricket Council(ICC) rules for the World Test Championship (WCC) 2021-2023, each team will be awarded 12 points for a win, six points for a tie and four points for a draw. In the fourth innings, the visitors were 51/1, Rohit Sharma (12) and Cheteshwar Pujara (12) were unbeaten in the middle.

The second Test will be held at the iconic stadium Lord’s, both the teams will play against each other on Thursday and will hope to secure a win for themselves in the second cycle of the WTC.
