The fourth day’s play of the ICC WTC Final was abandoned at Southampton. Now just two more days (Including the reserve day) are remaining for the finals with a result looking distant.
Rain played a spoilsport on the fourth day after it washed out on the start day’s play. The ICC is under the radar of fans and commentators alike are for being under-prepared to stage for a climax final.
Initially on the fourth day of the match commentator Virender Sehwag took his twitter handle and tweeted that “Batsman ko bhi Timing nahi mili dhang ki, aur ICC ko bhi #WTCFinal”

After the first day was at halt, the second day’s play saw 64.4 overs being bowled. The third day’s play saw a complete of 76.3 overs being bowled by the 2 teams together. The fourth day’s play was abandoned once more because the rain played spoilsport.
In another tweet, Sehwag acknowledged to the shortage of swing which the bowlers got on Day 3 of the WTC final, the tweet went like, “Mood swing ho gaya, ball nahi huyi.#WTCFinal21”
Mood swing ho gaya, ball nahi huyi.#WTCFinal21

It will be thus interesting to ascertain what the proportion of play is feasible within the final two days and if it yields a result.
