The cricket fans were treated to a fascinating contest on Day 3 of the World Test Championship (WTC). Kyle Jamieson dismantled the Indian batting and picked up his fifth five-wicket haul in the WTC to restrict India to 217 before Devon Conway’s half-century put New Zealand in command. However, just before the close of Day’s play, Ishant Sharma picked up the prized scalp of Devon Conway, bringing India back into the match. While New Zealand still is in a pretty decent position, as we saw yesterday with India, a wicket or two can open the floodgates. The fans are eagerly waiting to see a riveting contest on Day 4. However, the villain, the weather is not looking very promising with showers expected throughout the day.
India’s weatherman, Dinesh Karthik, who has been providing weather updates since the start of WTC final doesn’t have great news for the cricket fanatics. Karthik posted a weather update on his Twitter handle and captioned the post as: “Not great atm.”

The weather in England has been very severe over the last week with many domestic matches being washed out due to the same. Meanwhile, the fans have come down hard on the ICC for staging the marquee event in England despite unfavourable weather conditions.
Fingers crossed, but if we do get to sneak in some play today, India will need to get things right from ball 1. If they can knock off Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor for not much, New Zealand have a fragile batting to follow. Remember, New Zealand will be batting fourth on this wicket which won’t be easy by any means.
