India vs New Zealand Live Score: Kyle Jamieson took two wickets early on.© AFP
Pacer Kyle Jamieson dismissed Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant in quick succession to put New Zealand on top after play on Day 3 was delayed early on due to wet outfield in the World Test Championship (WTC) Final. After Day 1 was washed out, play resumed on Day 2 and India were 146 for three at Stumps versus New Zealand in the ongoing WTC Final, at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Sunday. Also, bad light led to the umpires finishing Day 2 early than its scheduled time. Ajinkya Rahane is batting on 34 runs as he was joined by Ravindra Jadeja after the fall of the two wickets. Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill also made noteworthy contributions on Day 2. The openers scored 34 and 28 runs respectively. Meanwhile, Trent Boult, Kyle Jamieson and Neil Wagner took a wicket each for New Zealand on Day 2. On Day 3, India will be aiming to score more runs and increase their pressure on New Zealand. On the other hand, New Zealand will be aiming for a better bowling display. (LIVE SCORECARD)
