The rain has spoiled all the zest of the first World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand. The first and fourth days of the final Test were badly washed out due to rain and 90 overs could not be bowled for the rest of the day. With only 221 overs to be bowled in the last five days, the match is also being played in the Reserve Day today.
