New Zealand were 101 for two in their first innings at stumps on Day 3, trailing India by 116 runs in the ICC World Test Championship final at the Rose Bowl, Southampton Sunday. Skipper Kane Williamson and veteran Ross Taylor were batting on 12 and 0 respectively when bad light forced early stumps. Ishant Sharma removed opener Devon Conway (54 off 153) towards the end of the day after Ravichandran Ashwin had given India the first breakthrough by removing Tom Latham for 30.  India were all out for 217 with Kyle Jamieson completing a five-wicket haul (5/31), including the prized one of India skipper Virat Kohli, who could not add to his overnight 44. Ajinkya Rahane (49 off 117) was playing well until he threw his wicket away with a half-hearted pull off Neil Wagner. The dangerous Rishabh Pant (4 off 22) did not last long, falling to a loose drive off Jamieson with Tom Latham taking a brilliant catch in the slips. Ravichandran Ashwin scored a valuable 22 off 27 in difficult conditions. Ravindra Jadeja was the last man to be dismissed on 15. India had resumed the day at 146 for three.  Catch Day 3 highlights of the IND vs NZ match here:
