WTC Weather Update: Rain likely to play spoilsport on Day 4


It seems the much-awaited World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand is heading towards a draw as the weather in Southampton once again looks unfavourable.

On Monday, there has been forecast of a heavy rainfall throughout Southampton, indicating a wash-out of the Day four of the contest.

Although, the ICC has kept a reserve day for the contest, only 141.1 overs of play has been possible in the first three days, with the first day being washed out entirely.

The ICC had declared that both the teams will be announced as joint winners in case of a draw affair.

Earler, New Zealand ended a truncated third day of the contest on Sunday at 101/2 in reply to India’s first innings total of 217.

The third day day was forced to be called-off prematurely, thanks to the dark clouds covering the Hampshire Bowl, making the visibility poor for play.

At stumps, Kiwi skipper Kane Williamson was batting on 12 (37 balls, 1×4) while Devon Conway was at 54 (153 balls, 6x4s) with New Zealand trailing India by 116 runs.

Ace soinner R. Ashwin and Ishant Sharma took the two wickets.
