It seems former England captain Michael Vaughan hates Team India. If you go through his Twitter handle, you will find many such posts where he without any logic undermines Indian cricket. This trend continues unabated during the World Test Championship as well. In his recent tweet, he was seen saying that, ‘If this match was being held in the northern part of the country, then even a minute’s time would not have been wasted. By now the New Zealand team would have become the champion. Even though he uses funny emojis in his tweets, Indian fans understand his intentions very well, so do not leave any chance to troll.
New Zealand tied for 249 runsThe Kiwis took a crucial 32-run lead over India in their first innings on the fifth day of the match. Captain Kane Williamson missed a half-century, scoring 49 runs. Devon Conway, who scored 54 runs, was the highest run scorer. Mohammed Shami took four wickets for India. Ishant Sharma got three, Ravichandran Ashwin got two wickets. Jaddu opened his account by bowling Southee. Bumrah’s bag remained empty.
Remember that the first day of the match was completely washed out due to rain. The toss was not even possible. On the second day, New Zealand won the toss and handed the bat to India. Team India was all out for 217 runs on the third day. The fourth day’s play also had to be called off without a ball being bowled. Now New Zealand’s second innings has come to an end on the fifth day. The ICC has kept June 23 as a reserve day for the final match, due to which there are still two hours and one day left in the game.
