Weather has been a bane for inaugural ICC’s World Test Championship Final between New Zealand and India with two days of play lost at Southampton.

There is some good news for Day 5 though. The forecast for Tuesday predicts no rain with full days play expected. There is some chances of rain today also before the start of the match but the weather is stated to be clear for the rest of the day.

According to BBC Weather,"Some clouds with rain is possible early. However, sunny spells are expected to develop through the late morning and afternoon"

While many former players have been up in arms criticising ICC for scheduling such an important match in England, known for its fickle weather.

The fourth day was washed out completely, while play has been disrupted frequently due to bad light on other days.

Even though there is a reserve day but with no play possible for two out of the first four days, the match might end in a draw if inclement weather continues to play spoilsport.

Former England captain Kevin Pietersen and former India opener Virender Sehwag have been vocal about their criticism of ICC.


"It pains me to say it, but a ONE OFF & incredibly important cricket game should NOT be played in the UK," Pietersen tweeted.


"Batsman ko bhi Timing nahi mili dhang ki, aur ICC ko bhi," he tweeted. It meant that "neither the Indian batsmen nor the ICC got their timing right,” Sehwag said in a tweet.
