Although there is a forecast of showers during the day, the play will probably start on time in the Ageas Bowl due to the stormy weather in the morning. This can spark an interesting debate about what the winning team should choose.
The fans are absolutely excited to see that the game will finally start after the alarming 1st day. They are hopeful that the gods of the rain will show some mercy, that it will be possible to play all day. This is how they reacted to the current weather in Southampton.
India և New Zealand’s pursuit of glory in WTC final
And India և New Zealand dominated their WTC campaigns. India lost only one test series, it was against kiwis. Down Under’s spiritual performance was undoubtedly the highest point for India on its way to the WTC final.
New Zealand played one series less than India, but their home dominance over the likes of Pakistan and West India showed how dangerous their team is in such conditions. Test Series 1: A 0-0 victory over England will certainly boost their confidence ahead of the match against India.
India has already announced that it is playing XI and will participate in three speedometers with two tricks. But it has been raining in Southampton for the last few days. So it will be interesting to see if the captain Virat Colin reviews some deviations before throwing in his XI.
Another possible decision may be to beat the bowl first. The first-team teams have a great record at Southampton, but the humidity on the pitch can tempt both captains to score first. It will be interesting to see how things turn out in this important “final test”.
