The rain gods haven’t been too kind on the World Test Championship (WTC) final match between Indian and New Zealand which has lost two out of 4 days already since it was kicked off on June 18. The incessant showers and constant delays have ensured minimum action on the field, with only 141.1 overs bowled so far. There has, however, been a lot of chatter on social media with some not going too easy on ICC for choosing Southampton as the venue of the marquee event. Others, who have waited for months to catch the cricket action from their homes in Covid-19 times have expressed their displeasure through memes and mockery.
As rain once again delays Day 5 of the India-New Zealand actions, here are a few tweets that sum up what’s unfolding in the cricket world on Tuesday.
