The third day of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand was completely under New Zealand’s control. The team first decked out the Indian team for 217 with star batsmen and then the starters gave the team a hard start and put the team ahead. One such moment came when India captain Virat Kohli began to dance on the field during the Kiwi innings. They did all this to cheer up the fans for the team. As soon as they started dancing Bhangra, the fans who came to see the match at the stadium started dancing with joy.

Virat could not convert a good innings into a long innings
Batting on the third day was not easy as it was cloudy from the second day of the match. Kohli could not add a run to his score yesterday. Royal Challengers Bangalore’s fellow bowler Jamison was in serious trouble. Boult and Jamieson continued bowling outside off-stumps and Kohli, too, grasped his technique and dropped the deliveries. In that case, Jamieson’s excellent length knocked the ball to his pad and lifted the umpire’s finger. Kohli also lost the DRS.

Jamieson has shaken India’s innings
Earlier, bowler Kyle Jamison took five wickets in his eighth Test innings for the fifth time, on which Team India could score only 217 in the first innings. India started the day early with 146 for three, but lost the remaining seven wickets for 71. The credit goes to New Zealand’s fast bowlers and captain Kane Williamson, who has done well for Indian batsmen, especially Kohli and vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane. Jamieson took five wickets for 31 while Neil Wagner, Trent Boult and Tim Southee took five wickets each.
