The final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand is taking place in Southampton. Rain was the villain for the fourth consecutive day of the Test and could not play a ball. The first day of the Test was completely washed away by rain. Looking at the situation of the match, many former veteran players believe the match is now heading towards a draw. Meanwhile, the wrath of former Indian batsman Virender Sehwag has rocked the ICC. He blamed the ICC for the timing of the WTC final.

Sehwag wrote on his Twitter handle that “batsmen don’t have the time and the ICC.” Besides Sehwag, former India batsman Laxman also expressed dissatisfaction with the ICC’s decision to book a day. He said, ‘It’s very sad for the fans. I think the ICC has not made the right rules. Finally you need to get a champion. The first day of the test was raining heavily, and the game could not take place, but the second and third day of the game was interrupted by rain.
