The start of the World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand did not go well. The first day of the Test was washed out due to rain. However, the threat of rain is not over yet. Including reserve day on June 23, there may be heavy rain for about 3 days in the next 5 days. June 20, 21 and 22 will be important in this.

However, the weather will be very clear on Reserve Day. Let us know how the weather can be in Southampton from 19 to 23 June and how it can affect the match.
On Saturday 60 to 80% of the rain can be expected. With this 86% cloud cover is expected. Due to the rain on the first day, there must have been a lot of moisture in the ground.
In such a situation, the team winning the toss can also bowl first. Due to cloudiness during the match, the bowlers will get a lot of help. The highest chance of rain is from 3 pm to 12 pm and this is also the timing of the match.
With rain on Sunday, the sun can also come out. There is a 60 to 80% chance of rain on this day as well. However, the timing of the rain will be reversed from the timing of the match. On 20th from 12 pm to 9 am there may be good rain. After this, the sun can come out during the day.
There is a possibility of 70% cloud cover on this day. In this case, all three seasons of the match can be played. If the match happens on this day, swing bowlers can dominate. If the Indian team bowls on this day, then the matter can be reversed.
Rain can become a villain on Monday. There is a chance of 80 to 90% rain on this day, while the cloud cover will be 99%. The onset of rain is expected from 3 pm onwards throughout the day. The highest rainfall is expected from 12 noon to 9 pm. At this time 2.3 to 2.5 mm of rain may occur. The game of the first and second sessions may be interrupted.

There is a possibility of rain up to 3.20 mm on Tuesday. It would be difficult to play in such a situation. Along with this, the wind can also move at a speed of 27 kilometers per hour.
