India vs New Zealand Live Score: Play on Day 4 delayed due to rain.© Twitter/BCCI
As per the latest updates, rain has delayed start of play on Day 4. After weather-related interruptions on the first three days of play in the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, the rain Gods don’t seem to be kind on Day 4 as well. On Day 3, New Zealand were excellent with both bat and ball, bowling out India for 217 runs before a 70-run opening stand between Devon Conway and Tom Latham put India on the backfoot. However, in the last session, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ishant Sharma got the Indian team back into the game with the wickets of both openers. Captain Kane Williamson is at the crease along with the most senior batsman of the side in Ross Taylor. New Zealand were 101/2 at stumps on Day 3. While the advantage of two wickets in the final session lay with India, everything depends on how both the teams go in the first session on Day 4. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will look to exploit the rough patches on the pitch while New Zealand will be hoping to go past the Indian score and take a big first-innings lead.

Jamieson On Kohli’s Wicket!
In the post-day virtual press conference, Kyle Jamieson spoke on the importance of Virat Kohli’s wicket for his team. Here’s what he had to say:
“I think he is (Kohli) world class batter and those guys don’t tend to have too many chinks in their armoury. He is obviously a massive part of their line-up and to get him early certainly set things up nicely for us.”
