During the first final of the WTC in 2021 between India and New Zealand played in Southampton, nearly three days of play was washed out by persistent rain, forcing the game to head into the Reserve Day.

However, rain is not expected to play spoilsport this time even as light spells of rain are predicted on Saturday and Sunday - Day 4 and Day 5 - of the final. A reserve day is in play for the final on Monday

The match also marks the first instance of the Oval hosting a Test in the month of June since its first game in 1880.
