After a washout on the fourth day of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, the start of the fifth day’s play was delayed as the BCCI confirmed drizzle and the pitch was covered. With two days washed out due to rain in the final, there will most likely be a reserve day. New Zealand are still 116 runs behind India’s score of 217. Captain Kane Williamson, and senior batsman Ross Taylor will be at the crease for New Zealand after both their openers were dismissed on the third day. India took two wickets in the final session of the third day. India would like to restrict the 5th day. New Zealand players and expected first innings lead. There is still time left in the game, including a reserve day, with all three outcomes possible but much will depend on the first session of Day 5. (live scorecard)
