Kyle Jamieson Towers Over Indian Batting In WTC Final

Kyle Jamieson was New Zealand’s hero on Day Three as he claimed his fifth five-wicket haul in just eight Tests to help the Black Caps seize initiative in the ICC World Test Championship Final at Southampton. The 26-year-old Jamieson, who only made his Test debut against India in February 2020, secured the all-important wicket of Virat Kohli to prevent the skipper adding to his overnight score of 44. The right-arm pacer also dismissed the dangerous Rishabh Pant (4) before taking the wickets of Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah in successive balls as India slumped to 217 all out from 92.1 overs. No-one has more WTC five-wicket hauls than Jamieson, while he is only the 11th bowler to take five five-wicket hauls in his first eight Tests - and only the sixth to do so since the First World War.
