Indian all-rounder Ravichandran Ashwin and his wife Prithi Narayanan posted a video from the Ageas Bowl ahead of Friday's World Test Championship (WTC) Final. The ace spinner revealed the pitch was still under covers because of the rainfall in Southampton.

The cricketing world has been eagerly awaiting the ICC World Test Championship Final between India and New Zealand. Unfortunately, it seems like there will be multiple rain interruptions in this historic match.

In a video shared by Prithi Narayanan on her Instagram story, fans can see how The Ageas Bowl has been covered because of incessant rainfall.

"WTC Final, Day 1 morning. Pouring down," Prithi captioned the brief clip.

A few minutes after Prithi Narayanan posted the update, her husband Ravichandran Ashwin also uploaded a video from the stadium. Ashwin played the Mazhai Varum song in the background of his Instagram story.

Players and fans will be desperately hoping the showers subside and allow the ICC World Test Championship Final to go ahead as per the original schedule. However, looking at the current situation and Southampton's weather forecast for the upcoming days, the chances of getting a full game are very low.
