Virat Kohli had won all 44 of his batting innings so far as India concluded Day 2 at 146/3.

With no game being played in Southampton, the first day was washed out.

India captain Virat Kohli, a pitcher in the World Test Championship final, handled accurate New Zealand pace bowling when the match finally got underway on Saturday.

The Test Championship match started on Saturday, and the Indian captain, Virat Kohli, remained firm in the face of accurate New Zealand pace bowling. Once the first day of play was washed out, India was 146-3, the score at the end of the third stoppage due to bad light. To reach his half-century, Kohli faced 124 balls, during which only one boundary was hit. However, Ajinkya Rahane continued his batting innings with an unbeaten 58 to help his team reach a competitive score in the fourth innings. By the end of the day, Kyle Jamieson had figures of 1-14 in 14 overs. Only 64.4 overs of the total of 180 scheduled have been bowled to date.

As a final match referee, there is a provision that permits Chris Broad to extend the maximum number of days allowed for a Test to account for lost time due to bad weather earlier.

In overcast conditions that favored the speed attack, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson elected to send his team in first.

Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill opened up a 62-run opening stand, but they fell short.

However, at lunch, India was all out for 88, having lost three wickets on either side of the break.

Had Kohli been given out caught behind down the legside off left-arm quick Trent Boult on 17, his position would have been far worse.

However, because of confusion on the field, an umpire review proved inconclusive, with no conclusive evidence being found for Kohli not getting the ball.

India’s openers got off to a good start, even in the face of New Zealand’s seam and swing.

Rohit cut the first ball of the match, which was thrown by Tim Southee, down the middle for three as Gill distinguished himself by beating Jamieson around the base with a run.

Elegant Rohit

Rohit mentioned the 50 partnership, which involved a spectacularly designed cover-based four-over-bowler, Colin de Grandhomme.

Because this was India’s first Test since March, and that only last week New Zealand defeated England in a 1-0 series with an eight-wicket victory at Edgbaston, the openers’ form was especially impressive.

But Rohit’s long innings, which included six fours, came to an end when he chipped a swinging delivery to the third slip where Southee pounced to his right and held an excellent catch.

Gill followed shortly afterward for 28, while Neil Wagner’s aggressive left-arm bowling drew BJ Watling into a 36-run stand. This would be Watling’s last international game before retirement, Gill has said.

When Cheteshwar Pujara arrived in the middle of the park at 51 minutes and 36 balls, de Grandhomme bowled the first over and let out a huge cheer from the Indian fans in the crowd.

Pujara was hit on the helmet by a bouncer after missing a pull-off against Wagner on several occasions in the 2017 India vs. Australia playoff series.

Pujara was bowled by Boult for a duck after painstakingly working through 54 balls before he was lbw to a dipping inswinger that cut back sharply off the pitch.

The umpires disappointed the crowd by having the players removed from the field three times when the floodlights were working even though regulations allowed the game to continue in “less than ideal” conditions.

Stumps were finally called at 6:10 p.m. EDT, over an hour after play had stopped.

During a recently-played England vs. Pakistan Test match at the Hampshire Bowl, the same group of match officials was criticized for employing a similarly strict interpretation of what constituted bad light.

This series has been the focus of two years of competition between the leading Test nations, and the winning team will receive $1.6 million while the losing team gets $800,000.

Following Milkha Singh’s death, the Indian track team wore black armbands as a mark of respect for the national track and field legend.
