Rain washes out fourth day of World Test Championship

From Morning Report, 7:42 am on 22 June 2021

Rain has washed out the entire fourth day of the World Test Championship cricket final between New Zealand and India, leaving the teams little time to force a result in Southampton.

However, with a sixth day's play added and clouds forecast to clear, there's a glimmer of hope a draw can be avoided.

New Zealand will - hopefully - resume tonight on 101 for two, in response to India's 217.
