Hopes of a result in the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton were dashed after play got suspended on Day 4 due to rain. This was the second time in the final that the day’s play got washed out.
New Zealand would be particularly disappointed as they are in a good position having lost just two wickets for 101 runs on Day 3. India was bowled out for 217 in the first innings.
While fans continued to debate on whether the decision to hold the final in England was a blunder considering its unpredictable weather, some hilariously suggested cancelling the match altogether and declaring rain as the winner.
Netizens had a field day on Twitter, venting their frustration by sharing memes and jokes. Take a look at some of the best reactions as rain once again disrupted the match:
