Today weather in Southampton: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for IND vs NZ WTC Final Day 4.
During the third day of the ongoing final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton, 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).
Aided by inconsistent bowling from the Indian fast bowlers, both the left-handed batsmen trusted their defense and remained unperturbed with the lack of runs initially. Keeping the conditions in mind, perhaps Latham and Conway had realized well in time that putting price on their respective wickets holds the key for them.
India end day with a wicket, but day clearly belongs to NZ. With ball and bat, have shown determination and deep ambition. But Test delicately poised. A good first session with the ball would throw the match open

While New Zealand are still 116 runs behind India’s first-innings total of 217/10, eight wickets in hand should see them take a first-innings lead tomorrow. If the Black Caps manage to prevent a batting collapse, they should be able to build on their progress from today.
