The ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand has so far been dominated by the rain in Southampton. While the opening day’s play was abandoned without a ball being bowled, the same happened on Day 4 due to persistent rain. Despite a reserve day, it is most likely going to end in a draw.
Former Cricketer turned commentator Sunil Gavaskar said ICC should devise a formula to decide a clear winner, than both sides sharing the trophy in such a rain-marred WTC final.
Only 141.1 overs of play have been possible in the WTC final so far. With only two days of cricket remaining (including the reserved day), it is almost impossible to complete the remaining 308.5 overs.
“There must be a formula to pick a winner in case of a drawn World Test Championship final. ICC’s cricket committee should think and then take a decision” said Gavaskar.
