The Indian team finally got a breakthrough after 33 overs of grinding in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship in the final against New Zealand in Southampton. Tom Latham was the first to go as he delivered a catch to the Indian captain Virat Kohli at short cover for a well-made 30. Tom Latham built a 70-run opening stand with Devon Conway after the Kiwis bowled India for 217.
The dismissal occurred in the second ball of 34th over as he reached out to drive a flighted delivery from Ravichandran Ashwin. However, Tom Latham only scooped in the year to chip it to Virat Kohli. The 32-year old timed his leap currently to take the catch, delivering for India their first breakthrough. It was a much-needed one for India as the Kiwis made a strong start.
Earlier, Black Caps seamer Kyle Jamieson snared a five-wicket haul as India managed a little underwhelming total of 217. Virat Kohli was at the crease when India ended day two on 146-3; however, he was the first one to go today morning, departing without adding to his 44. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was the top scorer with 49. Sadly, none of the Indian batsmen reached 50.
