Delayed start or no play at all, as we saw on Day 1 and Day 4, due to rain or wet outfield has been the norm throughout the World Test Championship Final being played in Southampton. However, India vs New Zealand clash may witness some late drama with a full day of play expected on the reserve day, which was activated after the opening day of the match was washed out.
As per the weather update, no rain is expected on the day with a part cloud cover with temperature fluctuating between 19-23 degrees Celsius. Chances of rain are just 5 per cent between 7 AM to 5 PM (local time) on the day.
“….It will be a fine and dry day with sunnier skies for many. Feeling warmer than on Tuesday, with light winds.” – according to the UK Met department.
Interestingly, the cloud cover is predicted to be around 25 per cent, allowing both the teams a chance at winning the Test match with maximum quota of overs of 98.
