India vs New Zealand, WTC Final, Southampton weather today: Rain expected to play spoilsport on Day 4 at Rose Bowl
Southampton Weather Conditions day 4 appears to be much worse than the past three days in terms of weather. The forecast predicts rain, which will be extremely disappointing for viewers who have waited a long time to see their favourite teams compete. The humidity would also be excessive, making things difficult for players – assuming play takes place at all.
ICC Intention will be to complete the game with a ‘RESERVE DAY’, If needed
If the game does not conclude within five days, it will be moved to the reserve day. Initially, the intention will be to complete the game in five days by adding some more overs to the action if the conditions are favourable. The reserve day will not take place if the overs are completed and the match ends in a draw. In that situation, both teams will be considered co-winners, and the prize money would be split evenly.
“In the event of time being lost during the match, the ICC match referee will regularly update the teams and media about the way in which the reserve day may be used. The final decision on whether the reserve day needs to be used will be announced at the scheduled start of the last hour on the fifth day,” an ICC statement said.
