The World Test Championship (WTC) Final between India and New Zealand scheduled to take place in Southampton, UK, has been delayed due to rain, reports The Indian Express. There will be no play on Day 1 of the five-day summit clash. June 23 has been kept as the reserve day for bad weather situations just like this.
Update: Unfortunately there will be no play in the first session on Day 1 of the ICC World Test Championship final. #WTC21

Needless to say, cricket fans who have been eagerly waiting to see the final are a little disappointed. They’re hoping that the rain Gods let play begin tomorrow.
It has been raining since the last few days in Southampton !
