Weather conditions in Southampton: The SportsRush presents for you the detailed weather prediction for IND vs NZ WTC Final Day 6.
During the sixth day of the ongoing final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand in Southampton, New Zealand have begun their journey towards a 139-run chase to win the inaugural season of the historic tournament.
As of now, New Zealand opening batsmen Tom Latham and Devon Conway have played in their natural cautious manner scoring 19/0 in eight overs at tea on the reserve day. Knowing that they have as many as 53 overs to seal the chase, there is no reason for Latham and Conway to take unnecessary risks especially against the new ball.
There is still some drama left. Has to be. Let’s see who does the job for India. Someone will surely bowl an inspired spell. This team has shown that time and again. One more time?? #WTC2021Final

Resuming from their overnight score of 64/2, India ended up scoring 170/10 in 73 overs as an aggressive approach backfired for captain Virat Kohli and his teammates.
Weather conditions in Southampton
Talking about the current weather in Southampton, sun is shining brightly at the venue with no forecast of clouds taking control, forget rain. Contrary to how weather conditions have been in this match, Indian fans would be slightly dejected to not see any rain forecast for the ongoing reserve day.
According to AccuWeather, a “Mostly Sunny” day has 0% rain probability for the remaining part of this day. In such a scenario, there are minimal chances of the play getting halted due to bad light at the Ageas Bowl.
05:00 PM – 20 degree (Mostly sunny).
06:00 PM – 19 degree (Mostly sunny).
07:00 PM – 19 degree (Mostly sunny).
Therefore, fans can expect a full two hour session followed by an additional 30 minutes which means that New Zealand should have enough time to score 120 runs in the last session.
