It’s Day 6 of the WTC Final` today. That’s not something you hear very often. But with two full days washed out due to incessant rain in Southampton, the reserve sixth day had to come into play.

The good news is that the weather in Southampton today should allow cricket to be played. There is just about a 5% or less chance of rain from 7am to 5pm UK time today.
The climax of the rain-hit World Test Championship final in Southampton will move into the final day today, which has been forecast to offer ‘mostly sunny’ weather with very little chance of rain.

“….It will be a fine and dry day with sunnier skies for many. Feeling warmer than on Tuesday, with light winds.” – according to the UK Met department. The maximum morning temperature is expected to be 19 degrees centigrade, which may go up to 23 degrees in the afternoon.
The cloud cover is expected to be around 25%, which augurs well for the game with all three results still possibly on the table. Though with the amount of time lost, a draw looks like the most possible outcome.

India were 64/2 in their second innings, leading New Zealand by 32 runs, with Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara at the crease at the end of play on Day 5.
New Zealand were bundled out for 249 in their first innings on Tuesday.
