After a washout on Day 4 of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, there is hope of full day’s play on Tuesday. Forecast suggests that rain will stay away for much of Day 5. With two days getting washed out due to rain in the final, a reserve day will come into place in all likelihood. New Zealand are still 116 runs behind India’s score of 217 runs. Captain Kane Williamson, and senior batsman Ross Taylor will be at the crease for New Zealand after both their openers were dismissed on Day 3. India picked up two wickets in the final session of Day 3. On Day 5, India will look to restrict the New Zealanders and hope to take a first innings lead. With two days left in the game, including a reserve day, all three results are possible but a lot will depend on the first session of Day 5. (LIVE SCORECARD)
