India vs New Zealand WTC Final Day 1 Live Cricket Score Updates: Rain delays toss, no play in first session
India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ) WTC Final Test Live Cricket Score Streaming Online: India take on New Zealand in the World Test Championship final from Friday
India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ) WTC Final Test Live Cricket Score Streaming Online Updates: There will be no play in the first session of the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand in Southampton on Friday owing to incessant rain. The match was scheduled to start at 3pm (IST) but the weather ensured that the pitch at the Ageas Bowl was covered and the toss was delayed. The ICC has kept a reserve day to make up for time lost because of inclement weather. Rain has been forecast in Southampton for most part of the inaugural title clash in the longest format.
India start as favorites because of the greater options at their disposal, but will go in under prepared. New Zealand warmed up well in the two-Test series against England and dominated both, winning the second match inside four days.
India Playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli (captain), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumra
India: Rohit Sharma, Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli(c), Ajinkya Rahane, Rishabh Pant(w), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, Hanuma Vihari, Umesh Yadav, Wriddhiman Saha
New Zealand: Tom Latham, Devon Conway, Kane Williamson(c), Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls, BJ Watling(w), Colin de Grandhomme, Ajaz Patel, Tim Southee, Neil Wagner, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson, Matt Henry, Will Young, Tom Blundell
India may be ranked second in the latest ICC Test team rankings, but it still doesn’t accurately reflect the giant strides taken by Indian cricket in the last two years under Virat Kohli. And, heading into the World Test Championship (WTC) final against top-ranked New Zealand on Friday, Kohli’s team will be confident of winning the inaugural edition of WTC at Southampton.
The momentum is seen to be with the Kiwis after their 1-0 victory over England in the last Test series, which sent them to the top of the rankings. But, when Kohli and Kane Williamson go out for the toss on June 18, all of that will be forgotten.
