The first day of the final match of the International Cricket Council (ICC) World Test Championship (WTC) was washed away by rain. When the match was troubled by rain, former England captain Michael Vaughan made such a tweet that Indian fans have been hit hard by them. Vaughan wrote on Twitter that I see Team India saved because of the weather. This historic match will be played at The Ages Bowl Stadium in Southampton. It has been raining in Southampton since the day before the match. On the match day, the rain stopped, but the first day’s play was called off due to damp field conditions and weather.

One day before the match, Team India’s playing XI had announced. The match toss is not over yet, in which case Team India can make changes to their XI XI if they wish. After the rain, the fast bowlers can get help from the pitch and in such a situation, Team India can think of four fast bowlers. The reserve day is set for this historic match, so if the result of the match is wasted the first day, the game can be offset on June 23rd. Team India currently has three fast bowlers and two spinners in their XI. India’s Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (Captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammad Shami, Jaspreet Bumrah.
