The final of the ICC World Test Championship was to be played between India and New Zealand in Southampton today. The first day’s game washed away by rain. The umpires made the decision after inspecting the floor. The first day’s toss could not be carried out due to rain. June 23rd has been placed as the exclusive day for this match. It is therefore expected that the first day will be compensated. Team India players seem to be running out of time amid rain in Southampton.
BCCI has shared a video of Indian members playing dart after the first day’s game washed out. The BCCI tweeted that when the rains did not stop, Team India members wrote that they enjoyed the Dart game during a rainy break in Southampton. It is important to note that after the first day’s play was washed out, the match will be held at 3 pm India time. Although fans have been waiting for this Test match for a long time, they were disappointed.
BCCI announced on Thursday evening that Team India will play XI for the WTC final against New Zealand. Both Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja have been fed into the India squad. Mohammed Siraj, on the other hand, is not ranked in the XI. He had a fantastic performance against Australia but in his place was Ishant Sharma. Ishant Sharma has played 101 Tests for India. He took advantage of the experience.
Sunil Gavaskar says he can make changes to Team India’s XI
