As Rain Ruined WTC Final’s 1st Day, Cricket Lovers Outpoured Their Annoyance In Form Of Memes

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is getting slammed by the cricket lovers for selecting Southampton as the venue for the finals of the World Test Championship (WTC). It all started after the rain spoiled the first day (June 18) play of the WTC final which is scheduled to be played between India and New Zealand.

There is no denying the fact that the WTC final is a very important event and the cricket lovers were pretty upset after the first day play got abandoned due to rain. The online users began questioning decision of the ICC to select Southampton as the venue despite knowing that it will certainly rain over there as it is June.

This is not the first time that the ICC has organized an important event in England in the rainy season. In 2019 ICC World Cup, four matches got abandoned due to rain which is the highest count in regard to the no-result/abandoned matches in the tournament since the World Cup started in 1975.

The online users took to the micro-blogging site Twitter in order to express their annoyance in this regard and here are some selected tweets:

We all know that the ICC has kept a reserved day which can be used in such a scenario but what will happen if it rains further. Many former cricketers including Yuvraj Singh and head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri have suggested that the best of three-final should be organized in regard to the WTC final.

The Indian cricket lovers may have got themselves relieved by making memes and jokes and by slamming the ICC but the organization should keep weather forecast in mind while finalizing venues for important events. What do you have to say about it? Let us know your views.
