Kyle Jamieson corrected his line and lengths on the third day of the World Test Championship final to pick up a five-wicket haul and wreak India’s batting efforts in the first innings. 

He was at the top of his bowling prowess in the morning session of the day and scalped out the big wicket of Virat Kohli with an incoming delivery to start things off on a dominating note for the Kiwis.

He followed it up with the wickets of Rishabh Pant, who was too eager to drive a full and wide delivery from his off stump, Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah to dismantle India’s batting after an impressive start by Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill on the second day of the WTC final.

India were finally dismissed for 217 in the afternoon session with Neil Wagner, Trent Boult and Tim Southee complementing Jamieson with five wickets shared between them.

For India, Ajinkya Rahane was the leading run-scorer who was guilty of throwing his wicket away to Wagner on a short ball while Virat Kohli could not add on to his overnight score of 42 and was sent back to the pavilion.

The spin twins of Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin provided some contributions with the bat but conditions were heavily stacked in the favour of bowlers and India were made to work hard for runs.
