India vs New Zealand Live Score: India claimed five wickets on Day 5 to go on top.© Twiter/BCCI
India struck twice with the second new ball as Mohammed Shami claimed the wickets of Colin de Grandhomme and Kyle Jamieson after Lunch. Earlier, Indian pacers claimed the wickets of Ross Taylor, Henry Nicholls and BJ Watling early on Day 5 to put New Zealand on the backfoot. As per the latest updates, the batting side was on 192/7 after 87 overs, trailing India by 25 runs. The ill-fated inaugural World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand resumed at Southampton on Tuesday after an hour’s delay following the latest rain interruption to blight the showpiece match. 91 overs are scheduled to be bowled in three sessions of play today, BCCI confirmed. After rain meant the whole of Monday’s play was washed without a ball bowled — the second time in the match this had had happened after Friday’s opening day went the same way — there were hopes the match would resume as scheduled at 10:30 am local time (0930 GMT). But instead players and supporters at south coast county Hampshire’s headquarters had to wait until 11:30 am (1030 GMT) instead. (LIVE SCORECARD)
