Cricket is a funny sport. Despite two washed-out days, the rain-battered World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand has brought the fans on the edge of their seats courtesy of the reserve Day 6 in Southampton on Wednesday. At the time of writing this, Team India has put up 130 runs on the scoreboard for a loss of 5 wickets in the 1st session.

Notably, there are 73 overs left in the day and the sun is shining brightly at the venue in England.
