Pakistan and India will not meet each other unless and until both teams reaches the final of Championship. Each team will play against 6 teams of total 8 teams. Each team is planned to play 3 series at home and three away. There will be 2 to 5 test in each series and a team can score maximum 120 points in each series. Hence, the number of matches of each team will not be same. At the end of the league stage, the top two teams will meet in the final.

Point Scoring Formula

As the number of matches are not same for all team, so, ICC has decided to award points on the basis of each match instead of the result of series. This format will eliminate the inequality due to number of matches. If there are two matches in each series than points will be divided on 50% each match while points will be divided on 20% basis if the series contain 5 matches series.

Here is the detail of point distribution

26030200
3402013.30
43015100

Hence, the teams who will play less matches in a series have more chances to earn points. The team which will be behind the required over rate will be penalized in deducting 2 points from the points table.
