The final of the ICC World Test Championship is being played between India and New Zealand at the Aegis Bowl in Southampton. The first session of the third day of the Test match has never been better for India. On the first day of the third session, India lost the wickets of skipper Virat Kohli, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant. Former India cricketer Wasim Jaffer tweeted about India’s batting.
‘That kara swing won’t end,’ Jaffer tweeted. Zafar had previously tweeted that the third day of the WTC finals should come down to a ‘ghazini-like’ mood on Sunday. Ghajini is a film by Aamir Khan in which he suffers from short-term memory loss. He can’t remember anything for more than 15 minutes. Jafar said on his YouTube channel, ‘His mood must be ghazini because it is important to forget past balls. As we have seen with Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane, it is very frequent in England that you play a good ball and lose it. I think you have to have that mentality to forget the past ball and focus on the next ball.

India vice captain Ajinkya Rahane also missed a half-century. Neil Wagner was dismissed for 49. The first day of the Test was washed away by the Test match. New Zealand won the toss and invited India to bat first. Rohit and Shubman Gill put India on a solid start and put on 62 runs for the first wicket. Rohit scored 34 for 68 while Gill scored 28 for 64. On the second day, India scored 146 runs for the loss of three wickets in 64.4 overs. The match had to be stopped early due to bad light. 98 overs were bowled on the second day.
