All the hype around Day 1 of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand came to naught as not a single ball was bowled. The rain gods had the last say on the first day of the hugely awaited contest between the two sides.
Former Indian batting legend Virender Sehwag has stated that even though the first day’s play between India and New Zealand has been called off, he is enjoying Shafali Verma’s fearless approach to batting. Also, Hemang Badani has posted a meme to elucidate how rain had the last laugh on Day 1.
Today also marks the 4th anniversary of Pakistan’s historic triumph over India in the summit clash of the 2017 Champions Trophy. The Pakistan side thrashed India by 180 runs to secure the win, and batsman Fakhar Zaman has stated that it is a day that he will cherish forever. Meanwhile, Michael Vaughan has taken a sly dig at the Indian cricket team and has tweeted that India has been saved by the weather today.
Former Indian pacer RP Singh feels that rain is always a part of cricket. And finally, Rahul Chahar has opined that mental health is a very important aspect for athletes.
