The Rose Bowl at Southampton witnessed the inaugural match of the ICC World Test Championship finals on Saturday. Due to the bad weather, the game didn’t commence on Friday. It was a lucky day for the Kiwis as they won the toss and chose to field.
Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill anchored the batting line of the Indian team. This duo had put up 62 runs together before Rohit was dismissed by Kyle Jamieson.
After hitting 6 boundaries, the 34-year-old was dismissed for 34 runs in 68 balls. Shubman Gill was a prey to Neil Wagner’s bowling as he took his wicket after he scored 28 runs. It was not a good day for Cheteshwar Pujara.
He was struggling hard to withstand the field. He was instantly dismissed by a cheap shot from the left-arm bowler, Trent Boult. Pujara walked back to the pavilion scoring just 8 runs.
The Indian captain and the vice captain, Virat and Ajinkya Rahane made sure to steady the Indian ship. They had a decent fourth wicket partnership of 56 runs as the bad light dropped the second day game for 64.4 overs.
Shane Warne couldn’t keep his opinions to himself, and took to twitter to express about the New Zealand team. Warne was upset that the New Zealand team didn’t have a spinner in the squad for the ICC WTC finals.
