Cricket News: Best memes & reactions to rain on day 4 of Old Trafford Test | Reactions to rain playing spoilsport on day 4 of 4th Ashes Test

England have played the near perfect Test across three days, but are now sitting nervously waiting for the rain to relent on day five at Old Trafford. The hosts have been outstanding, making World Test Champions Australia look third rate for most of the contest, putting themselves in a great position to level the series 2-2.

However, rain could very well have the final say. Going 2-0 down in an Ashes series not only poses the challenge of beating the opposition thrice, but the weather as well. Barring enough gaps in the weather on day five, it looks like the rain could beat England, meaning Australia will retain the urn.

While that is disheartening to England fans, the reactions on Twitter can make for some cheering up. As the clouds hang low, rain threatens to appear and umpires have a chat and inspect, here are some of the best memes and reactions to rain playing spoilsport on the fourth day at Old Trafford.

One session of play was possible on day four. Marnus Labuschagne struck his second away hundred right when the team needed it. He put on a 103-run stand with Mitchell Marsh (31*), reducing the deficit below 70 in the process.

Joe Root and Moeen Ali looked the most threatening of the bowlers on a pitch aiding turn and uneven bounce for the spinners. Should there be some play, batting conditions are sure to be challenging with the overcast conditions, pressure of the situation and footmarks for the spinners to exploit.
