In the morning, India’s spin spearhead Ashwin had also shared the view of Ageas Bowl when it was raining before the scheduled start of play. “The camera also has a raincoat,” wrote Ashwin on Instagram while sharing a video of the ground.

WTC Final LIVE: Rain is forecasted on all five days of the game and that has seen the ICC add a reserve day on June 23. In case of a no-result, the Test Championship title will be shared.

“The Reserve Day has been scheduled to ensure five full days of play, and it will only be used if lost playing time cannot be recovered through the normal provisions of making up lost time each day. There will be no additional day’s play if a positive result is not achieved after five full days of play and the match will be declared a draw in such a scenario,” the ICC release on the playing conditions read.
