As a result of this win Sri Lanka has climbed to the top of the World Test Championship points table. ICC on Thursday shared a photo of the WTC points table as it stands currently, with the caption, "Sri Lanka on top. The ICC #WTC23 points table after the first #SLvWI Test."
The Lankans leapfrogged India, despite having only one Test win under their belt as compared to India's two, which came on the unfinished tour of England. This is because Sri Lanka have a higher percentage of points (PCT), which is 100 percent as they have won the only Test they have played so far in this cycle.
India have won two Tests, lost one and drawn one, which puts their PCT at 54.17, Pakistan are third as they have a PCT of 50, having won 1 and lost 1 of the two matches they have played. The table standings would change depending upon the result of the first Test between New Zealand and India, which is currently underway in Kanpur.
