WTC Final, Day 6: Kyle Jamieson gives India early jolts in 1st session, removes Kohli-Pujara early


India resumed innings from 64/2, with Kohli and Pujara resuming batting from their overnight scores. Team India, as well as fans, were hoping for a big partnership from the duo but their hopes were dashed as Kyle Jamieson had other ideas.

The tall pacer first dismissed Kohli for 13 as he got the Indian captain caught behind by wicketkeeper BJ Watling. India’s scorecard read 71 when Kohli was dismissed and soon Pujara joined him in the dressing room. Pujara was also dismissed by in-form Jamieson in his very next over.

The Rajkot batsman – who failed to impress in the first innings as well – was surprised by the bounce from Jamieson and found an edge from his bat and the ball was pouched comfortably by Ross Taylor at slip. Pujara scored just 15 before he was dismissed and left India reeling at 72 for 4.

Both Kohli and Pujara were brilliantly set up by Jamieson and both the batters had soft dismissals and that dented India’s prospects badly.

Earlier on day 5, senior NZ pacer Tim Southee struck twice in the final session of play on day five as India took 32 run lead in their second innings at Ageas Bowl. Having restricted New Zealand to 249 in their first innings, India trailed by 32 runs when Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill began their essay in the final session of the day’s play.


On a day that saw 10 wickets fell in all, Indians were hoping for another solid opening stand from the duo but Southee had other ideas as the right-arm speedster dismissed both the openers to keep his team in the game. Gill was dismissed pretty early in the innings when he was trapped plumb in front by Southee for 8.

At stumps, India were 64 for 2 in 30 overs and took a lead of 32 runs but the loss of Rohit after the right-handed opener laboured through most of the session and scored 30 before getting LBW by Southee.
