Rain is forecasted on all five days of the game and that has seen the ICC add a reserve day on June 23. In case of a no-result, the Test Championship title will be shared. “The Reserve Day has been scheduled to ensure five full days of play, and it will only be used if lost playing time cannot be recovered through the normal provisions of making up lost time each day. There will be no additional day’s play if a positive result is not achieved after five full days of play and the match will be declared a draw in such a scenario,” the ICC release on the playing conditions read.

“In the event of time being lost during the match, the ICC match referee will regularly update the teams and media about the way in which the reserve day may be used. The final decision on whether the reserve day needs to be used will be announced at the scheduled start of the last hour on the fifth day,” an ICC statement said.

Meanwhile, a couple of stoppages were made on Day 2, due to rain and bad light.

At the end of the day, India was 146 for three with Kohli on 44*, while Rahane was unbeaten on 29. It was competitive as long as it lasted, and finally, the players had to come off the field due to bad light. 64.4 overs were bowled on Day 2 of the historic Test.
