Jasprit Bumrah’s wife Sanjana Ganesan, who is part of the broadcast unit also hoped the rain stops and play starts. She merely provided an update that at the time of posting the image, it was not raining.

India opener Rohit Sharma’s wife Ritika too posted on her Instagram story saying, “Dear rain, I was really looking forward to watching a Test match at the stadium in my pyjamas, kindly oblige.”

India skipper Virat Kohli’s wife Anushka, who is at Southampton along with the team also wished that the rain stays away and comes after the Test is over.

Anushka’s Instagram story caption read: “Rain…rain…go away! Come again after 5 days”.
