The point allotment for the second edition of the WTC is as follows: Points given for a win: 12 Points given for a draw: 4 Points given for a tie: 6 Penalties for slow over rates- one point deducted for every over they fall behind.

The second edition of the World Test Championship will span 2 years starting from August 2021 to June 2023.
