New Zealand new-ball seamer Tim Southee earned his first wicket in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship final in Southampton. Tim Southee, who operated with the new ball after the 80th over mark, removed Ravichandran Ashwin for his first breakthrough. Ravichandran Ashwin played some exuberant shots and departed for 22 off 27 deliveries.

The dismissal occurred in the 86th over when Ravichandran Ashwin had been going aggressively and scored the majority of runs. Tim Southee had already copped a boundary in the previous delivery when Ashwin slammed a cracking shot off the back foot through the cover point region. The off-spinner, who wanted to slam another four, drove an outswinger from the right-arm seamer. Ashwin played at it; however, the thick edge flew to Tom Latham at second slip.

But the 34-year old played an outstanding hand as he scored three boundaries in his innings. Tom Latham took the third catch of the morning and grabbed two to dismiss Rishabh Pant and Ajinkya Rahane earlier. New Zealand had been remarkable on the third morning as Kyle Jamieson starred by removing Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant. Neil Wagner contributed by dismissing Ajinkya Rahane for 49, while Southee struck by making Ashwin his victim:
