If the match is shortened to three or four days due to weather, the lead may reach 150 runs. However, because one additional day has been added as a reserve day for the WTC final, the playing conditions will stay the same for the remainder of the match even if one day is lost to rain.

According to the article, Article 14.1.1 of the ICC’s playing regulations states that if a team bats first and has a lead of at least 200 runs, it can impose the follow-on against the opposition. Clause 14.1.2 specifies that if the match is reduced to three or four days, the minimum lead must be 150 runs. Similarly, a two-day match must have a lead of at least 100 runs, and a one-day match must have a lead of at least 75 runs.

Meanwhile, the Indian squad of 24 has arrived in England and has begun their preparations for the big encounter. New Zealand, on the other hand, dominated the first Test against England and will play the second Test against the hosts at Edgbaston starting on June 10.

As a result, many cricket experts feel that New Zealand will have an edge over India in the WTC final since they would have played two Test matches against England. India, on the other hand, will have to hit the ground running in the major match because they don’t have much time to adjust to the English conditions.
