If India manages to win or draw in the final test against England, the team will advance to the World Test Championship (WTC) final and the team will face New Zealand in the clash. at the top.
India had defeated England by ten wickets in two days in the pink ball test. The match saw the batsmen of India and England fail to shine and come out of balls which did not turn and skidded by the spinners.

The hosts lead the series 2-1 with the fourth test of the series starting on Thursday.
