India have played 14 Test matches at the Oval, located in London, winning two and losing five, with seven Tests ending in a draw. They first played a game at the stadium in 1936 and ended up losing convincingly to England, by nine wickets.
India at the Oval
India recorded a 157-run win here the last time they played, in 2021 against England. The visitors had taken a 99-run lead after the first innings when India were bowled out for 191.
Reserve Day in WTC Final
The Reserve Day only comes into the picture in case rain plays spoilsport in the match and time is lost due to extreme weather conditions. To make up for the lost time, the Reserve Day can then be used in order to find out a winner.
But, if no rain takes place and the match remains deadlocked in 5 days, the Reserve Day would not kick-in. For the extra day to be added, rain has to play some sort of role in the match, be it for the entire day or a few hours.
