Incessant rain has forced Day 4 of the India vs New Zealand World Test Championship final to be abandoned without a single ball being bowled.
The climate was kind enough yesterday to allow a decent amount of cricket but just in case you missed the ebbs-and-flows, we got you covered. Tom Latham and Devon Conway batted out of their skin to forge a 70-run partnership before the dismissals of both the openers lifted India’s spirits. The Kiwis concluded on 101/2 as poor light forced early Stumps, with veterans Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor occupying the crease.
India bowled with discipline but just didn’t have the rewards to show for it until Ravi Ashwin had Latham chipping a dolly to cover and Ishant Sharma provided a lucky break in the form of Conway. Jasprit Bumrah had an off-colour outing by his lofty standards and would look to make amends today, given weather permits.
Earlier, India were bundled out for 217 with Kyle Jamieson the wrecker-in-chief as he pocketed his fifth five-wicket haul in merely 15 innings.
