Why was Southampton chosen as the venue for WTC Final?

In the grand finale of the inaugural edition of the World Test Championship (2019-21 cycle) captain Virat Kohli is leading his side to their first-ever ICC trophy under his captaincy against cool captain Kane Williamson, the stakes are quite high and both the teams are looking to leave no stones unturned to claim the ultimate glory in The Rose Bowl, Southampton. After chewing up Day 1 of the World Test Championship final, the rain was in a mood to hog all the attention throughout the tournament. The persistent downpour forced the officials to abandon Day 4 of the “so-called” final also. After the 2019 World Cup blunder, many thought ICC would give a little more ponder before finalising the venue for the all-important World Test Championship final.
