The second session on Day 2 of the ICC WTC Final of an engrossing passage of play between Indian batsmen and New Zealand seamers came to a premature abrupt end after the on-field umpires decided that the light wasn’t good enough for the game to continue.
It all happened during the 56th over of Team India’s innings when the on-field umpires converged to make the decision.
The decision was met with loud boos from the crowd as the players walked off the field for early Tea on Day 2 of the ICC WTC Final.
Speaking of the 2nd session, it was an engrossing passage of play where we saw the New Zealand seamers bowl with a lot of discipline.
The Indian batters, however, were pretty patient even as they faced one tough question after another.
Pujara and Kohli blunted the better part of the first hour against the likes of Neil Wagner and Colin de Grandhomme.
However, the introduction of Trent Boult in the attack proved to be the partnership-breaker as the left-arm swing bowler nailed Pujara plumb in front.
Virat Kohli, however, continued to show a lot of patience in difficult conditions as he respected good balls but at the same time, he hasn’t missed on scoring on the rare loose deliveries that the Kiwis have bowled.
His running between the wickets was even more immaculate, regularly converting 1s into 2s and 3s.
At the time of writing, the player were back on the field for the third session on Day 2 of the ICC WTC Final.
