WTC Final: Will The Rain Interrupt The Match? Weather Forecast, Pitch Report, And Reserve Day, Check Full Report

As the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and Australia approaches, fans are eager to know if the rain will play spoilsport again as it did in the previous edition. Fortunately, the weather forecast for London during the match period indicates pleasant conditions with minimal rain chances. Additionally, the match has a reserve day in case of interruptions, ensuring a fair outcome for both teams. Let’s delve into the weather outlook and pitch report for the WTC Final 2023.

Fans will be relieved to learn that the weather in London is expected to be favorable during the WTC final. With just a 1% chance of precipitation, there is a high probability of uninterrupted play. This is great news, considering rain disrupted the previous edition’s final between India and New Zealand. Although weather predictions can change, current indications suggest a low likelihood of rain affecting the match.

If the daily quota of overs cannot be completed due to weather interruptions, the WTC final has a reserve day in place. The match is scheduled to have six hours of playtime each day, requiring 90 overs to be bowled. If weather conditions prevent the completion of play on any given day, the reserve day (June 12) will be utilized to compensate for lost time and overs.

If rain significantly impacts the WTC final and prevents its completion, the 2021-23 edition trophy will be shared between India and Australia. Although Australia finished at the top of the WTC points table, if weather conditions impede the final, both nations will be acknowledged and share the honor.
