Earlier, the top team was awarded the ICC Test Championship mace and a cash prize. The ICC Test Championship mace was transferred whenever a new team moved to the top of the rating list between 2003 to 2019. The mace is now awarded to winners of the ICC World Test Championship. 

How the team ratings are determined?

To determine the new ratings of teams after a particular match, points earned from a match are calculated.
