England seamer Stuart Broad has questioned the points allocation system in the World Test Championship.

Broad raised a question mark on the equivalence of the Ashes series and India playing against Bangladesh. The statement comes before India and New Zealand lock horns in the World Test Championship final on June 18 at the Ageas Bowl.

According to the rules of WTC, ICC gives same number of points for each series irrespective of its length. "The World Test Championship is a really good concept; I just don't think it's quite right yet. It's a first-time effort. I can't quite work out how a five-match Ashes series can be worth the same as India playing Bangladesh for two Tests,” said Broad while speaking to the ‘Press Association’.

According to the points system in WTC, match results are taken into consideration as compared to series results. In a five-match series, 20 per cent of the points are available each match, while in a two-match series, 50 per cent of the points are available every game.

Broad, who has so far taken 517 Test wickets, says the idea has given ‘great context to the game’ but added that changes needed to be made on how all of this came together.

"There's something in the idea and it has given great context to the game but there needs to be work done on how it all comes together, I think,” he continued. England had played the highest number of Tests in the WTC (21), while India had got 17. Bangladesh, who were placed at the bottom, got a total of seven games.

"We had an opportunity, but the amount of cricket we play as an England side in the current system makes it very difficult to get into the final.”

India had edged out England in the sub-continent while they also hammered Australia Down Under to crush any hopes of making it to the WTC final.
