In the final of the ICC World Test Championships (WTC), New Zealand are stronger than India due to the sharp bowling of young fast bowler Kyle Jamison. The team first bowled out Team India for 217 and then scored 101 runs for the loss of two wickets till the end of the third day’s play. Captain Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor are the two most experienced players on the team. Former India cricketer and commentator Akash Chopra has said that the Kiwis will have a lot of pressure on the fourth day of the match. He has given the reason.

Speaking to ‘Star Sports’ after the third day’s play, Akash said New Zealand should also look at where India once was. The team’s score was 146 for 3 at a time and two sets of batsmen were in the crease at the time, but the story changes completely when the team plays the next morning. The ball spins again and the balls take the edge and go to the player in slip. Also, India’s tail batsmen couldn’t do much. All these things can happen with the New Zealand team on the fourth day of the match.

He said, ‘From a New Zealand standpoint, they know they are in a good position. When you decide to bowl after winning the toss, you should also keep in mind that you must play the fourth innings and all out the opposition team. So if the Kiwis take a 30-40 lead in this game, it will prove to be not enough for a country like India. In order to be good in the game and to win the toss, you need to take at least 150 runs.
