Team India continued their dominance in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship as they defeated South Africa by an innings and 137 runs in Pune. In the ongoing Freedom Trophy series between two nations, the Indian team is yet to put a foot wrong as the hosts lead 2-0 over the visitors. The final Test match of the series will be held between October 19 and 23 at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi. The ongoing championship started on August 1 with two oldest cricketing rivals resuming their Ashes rivalry.

The 2019 Ashes in England saw some of the most closely-fought matches between the two teams in recent memory as the series ended in a fair 2-2 result. In Sri Lanka during the same month, the Lankan team hosted New Zealand in a two-match series which also ended in a draw. On August 22, West Indies and India launched their World Test Championship campaign in the Caribbean in a series completely dominated by the Virat Kohli-led side.

After playing four matches, the Indian team is the only participating nation which have secured a perfect 200 points from their allotted matches. The Virat Kohli-led team is yet to lose or draw a game as the World No 1 Test side have re-affirmed their reign in the Test championship as well. Team India reached the top of ICC Test team rankings in October 2016 and have continued their helm at the top ever since.
