India vs New Zealand WTC Final Day 1 Cricket Score Updates: Rain delays toss, no play in first session


India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ) WTC Final Test 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.
