Qualification Scenario for Each Team in the WTC Final: 

Indian Cricket Team: 

Their best way for qualification is to beat Australia 4-0 in the home series. It looks like an uphill task but it is possible as it has been done previously. This Australian team is having some of the best test players of the past decade but the Indian team has equally sensational players. If they beat Australia 4-0, India will qualify for the World Test Championship final with 67.33% points. If they lose 4-0 to Australia, India will have to stay away from the final with 45.55% points to their name. 

Australian Team: 

The scenario for the Australian team is very simple. They just need to hold on to the lead that they have made. They do not need a big victory over any of the teams. They just need a draw here and there and they will easily qualify for the World Test Championship Final. But if they beat India by 4-0 in the home series for the men in blue, they will comfortably qualify with 80.04% points.
