The final match of the ICC World Test Championship between India and New Zealand is taking place in Southampton. After scoring 217 in the first innings, India were all out. Kyle Jamieson took 5 wickets while bowling his best for New Zealand. Ajinkya Rahane was the highest run scorer for Team India with 49 runs. A funny incident occurred when the Indian bowler dismissed Ravichandran Ashwin during the Indian innings and dismissed him in the next delivery. Similarly, when the commentator praised New Zealand’s sleeping fielders, one of them dropped the catch on the next delivery.
The commentary box is for sure Jinx … he praises Ashwin’s batting .. next delivery he comes out .. he praises NZ’s slip card … he leaves Jadeja next delivery #WTCFinal21

Due to this, Indian fans became angry with the commentators on social media and advised them not to praise Indian batsmen. While many fans call the narrator unlucky, many are also having fun with it. Team India’s batting order shattered like a pack of cards before Kyle Jamison’s fatal bowling. Jamieson took 5 wickets for the fifth time in his 8th Test. He was the first bowler to do so for New Zealand.
WTC Final 2021: Waiting for Virat Kohli’s centenary, fans will feel
The start of the third day of play was delayed by an hour due to rain. Jamieson did not allow Virat Kohli to add a run to the score yesterday and took his second wicket in the WTC final. After the captain’s dismissal, India’s innings went down badly. Deputy skipper Ajinkya Rahane missed his half-century and fell to Neil Wagner for 49. At the same time, Rishabh Pant was disappointed with his performance and was able to score only 4 runs after facing 22 deliveries. Ravichandran Ashwin took some good shots, but he was caught in the slips of Tim Southee.
