The first session of the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand has been washed out due to rain at the Ageas Bowl.

The weather forecast across all platforms shows heavy rain in Southampton today.

What is worrisome is that rain is forecast on all 5 days of the match.

Even on the sixth day, which the ICC has kept as a reserve day, rain is forecast.

if there is still no result on the field after the reserve day, the Test Championship will be shared.
