Batting collapse for India
India lost Virat Kohli early on the third day. Kohli came back with 44 runs. Vice Captain Ajinkya Rahane (49) was captured but soon returned by Wagner. Rishabh, who scored just 4 runs, was quickly fired by Jamison. Ashwin and Jadeja then tried to increase the score, but Ashwin came back with 22 runs. At lunch, India was 211 times seven.
India seeks the best score
India aims for a good score on day three of the Test Championship final in Southampton, England. The Kiwis bowling lineup was well defended by India on the second day. Starters Shubhman Gill and Rohit Sharma were fired after crossing the 50 mark. In the current circumstances, even scoring 250 in the first innings would be a good score for India.
India resumes their hitting at 146 of 3. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane are in the fold. Not a single ball could be thrown on the first day of the game due to the rain. The second day he had to stop earlier due to lack of light. On the third day, there were reports of light rain.
