India vs England Trent Bridge Nottingham 4th time entire final day play abandoned without a ball bowled Rain reminds 2013 Champions Trophy final
The first Test of the 5-match series between India and England ended without a win-win decision. At one time the result of this match seemed absolutely certain, but due to rain, not a single ball could be played on the last day and the match ended in a draw. With this, history was repeated in Nottingham after 86 years.
Not only this, this rain also brought back memories of the Champions Trophy final played in Birmingham, England in the year 2013. The first Test match was played at Trent Bridge in Nottingham in June 1899. Since then 64 Test matches have been played at this ground. This is the fourth time in the history of these 122 years, when the last day of a Test match has been wasted without a single ball being bowled. The first such thing happened in Nottingham on 7 August 1912. That test match was played between Australia and South Africa.
After that it happened during the Ashes series played between England and Australia in June 1926. Then the day’s play on both 14 and 15 June was completely ruined. In Nottingham, the last time a ball was bowled was on 18 June 1935 on the last day of the Test between England and South Africa.
Since then this has not happened in Nottingham till now, but on 8 August 2021, the 86-year-old history was repeated. On the last day of the first Test between India and England, not a single ball could be bowled due to rain.
Rain also became a villain during the final of the 2013 Champions Trophy. However, then the match was not canceled and the result went in India’s favour. That final match was played on 23 June 2013 in Birmingham. England won the toss and elected to field. Due to rain, the match was reduced to 20-20 overs instead of 50-50.
Due to this the match started at 04:20 pm. India scored 129 for 7 in 20 overs. Chasing the target, England could only manage 124 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs. In this way India won that match by 5 runs. Along with this, he also captured the last and final ICC Champions Trophy.
The special thing is that Ravindra Jadeja was selected Player of the Match in that match. Ravindra Jadeja has also performed brilliantly with the bat in Nottingham. Talking about the match played in Nottingham, due to incessant rain, India lost their chance of winning the first Test against England.
On 8 August 2021, the day’s play was abandoned without a ball being bowled on the 5th and final day of the match, forcing both the teams to share points. Team India had to score 157 more runs to win on the last day. He had nine wickets to fall. Out of a possible 450 overs, only a little over 250 overs could be bowled in the first Test due to bad weather.
