The ICC Test Rankings, also known as the ICC Test Championship, ranks the 10 Test playing nations by giving them a rating, which is based on a mathematical formula. Each team's points total from matches over the last 3−4 years is divided by a figure based on their total number of matches and series played.


The ICC awards the Test Championship Mace to the no. 1 Test team, which is the team which achieves the highest rating. The Australia Cricket Team, led by Pat Cummins, currently holds the mace, after finishing the year as the world no. 1 side, following their win against Australia in the four-match Test series held in Australia. They went on to win the series 4-0 and ensured that they stayed on top of the rankings. The Australian Cricket Team also defeated the England Cricket team in Jan 2022 winning the series by 4-0 and retaining the World No. 1 Test Team Title.


Australia has performed exceptionally well and occupies the first spot. India was previously at the top of the rankings and currently finds itself in the second position.


The ICC decided to award Afghanistan and Ireland the status of Test-playing nations after all the success they achieved over the past couple of years. The ICC Test Championship is also a great initiative to encourage the associate nations to take up test cricket.
