New Zealand’s sensational all-rounder Kyle Jamieson said that dismissing Indian Captain Virat Kohli in the WTC Final felt really great.
Kyle Jamieson was awarded as the ‘Player of the Match’ for his astounding seven wickets haul, including a five wickets haul in the first innings. “It’s a massive moment. To have some context around test cricket is big & to be standing here now is surreal. I knew we had a big first hour today. We had the ball in the right areas, & we knew it would be a tough task. It’s nice to have the ball first up & play your part. It’s nice to have a chance to do good things for the team”, Jamieson told in the post-match presentation.
“The work that the other bowlers did was really helpful for my figures. Virat is a world-class player & it was really good to have some experience against him at the RCB. To pick him up twice in the test was great”, he added.
New Zealand Captain Williamson & Taylor scored blistering knocks off 52 & 47 to take New Zealand over the finish line to clinch the inaugural season of the World Test Championship. Complete focus & sheer efforts on the Reserve Day helped the Black Caps to have an edge over India who fell cheaply in the second innings. New Zealand made complete use of its 32 runs lead & restricted India for 170 in the second innings to walk away with an average target of 139 runs. In the end, the kiwis’ batsmen showed great intent with the bat & ended up sealing a prestigious victory.
Earlier Tim Southee scalped four wickets to bundle out India for 170 in the second innings on the Reserve day. Kiwi’s lead of 32 runs meant that they require just 139 runs in 153 overs to win the inaugural WTC Final trophy. Williamson & Taylor with great determination stitched 96 runs stand to chase the target & guide Black Caps to a comfy win.
