The dates place the WTC closing between the IPL closing, which is anticipated to happen on May 28, and the Ashes, which begins on June 16 in Birmingham.
There are three collection to go on this WTC cycle, with India internet hosting Australia for the four-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy, New Zealand internet hosting Sri Lanka for 2 Tests, and South Africa internet hosting West Indies for 2 Tests. No finalist is confirmed but, with Australia, India, Sri Lanka and South Africa the one groups in competition.

Anything lower than that, and Australia can be depending on different outcomes.
For the Border-Gavaskar Trophy to be a confirmed costume rehearsal for the ultimate, India need to beat Australia 3-1 or higher. Again, something lower than that and India would rely on different outcomes going their means.
