Current Weather in Southampton: The start of the fifth day of the World Test Championship has also been delayed due to inclement weather.
During the fifth day of the ongoing final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton, the start of play has been delayed for yet another time in this historic contest. Readers must note that it is drizzling (light rain) right now at the venue.
While the weather forecast for today was expected to be cloudy, rain was never in contention at the Ageas Bowl in the first session. In what appears to be a passing shower, more loss in overs will further reduce the probability of teams finding a clear result in this match.
The more time that is lost, the lesser the chance of India winning this and the game will start moving towards a two result possibility; a draw or a New Zealand win. https://t.co/NDGogNcFUu

In the first innings, New Zealand have gained a huge advantage on the back of a composed 70-run opening partnership between Tom Latham (30) and Devon Conway (54). Still 116 runs behind India’s first-innings total of 217, conditions won’t be easy for the Kiwi batsmen.
Current Weather in Southampton
Going by the weather forecast in Southampton on AccuWeather, there still is no possibility of rain for today. At this point in time, the forecast predicts a “Mostly Sunny” day.
Provided the weather in Southampton sticks to the forecast, a large part of today should be spent in playing cricket on the field. Talking about the rain probability of AccuWeather, the same is expected to remain 0% throughout the day.
