Southampton: Bad light stopped play in the final session of day two with India reaching 134/3 against New Zealand in the World Test Championship final here on Saturday.
Skipper Virat Kohli was unbeaten on 40 while Ajinkya Rahane was batting on 22 in a 46-run unbroken stand for the fourth wicket. While early tea was taken, the post-tea session started 15 minutes late due to bad light.
Compared to the morning session, New Zealand’s all-pace attack showed much more discipline to not allow the batsmen any easy runs.
With the Dukes ball moving around, Kohli paid due respect to the bowlers including Colin de Grandhomme, who bowled three successive maidens to the India skipper.
He was happy leaving anything outside the off stump and was quick to pick up runs when bowled into the pads. Such was Kohli’s intent that he did not hit a single boundary in the session.
India decided to stick to the playing eleven they announced two days ago despite change in conditions while New Zealand went in with a four-prong pace attack at the expense of a specialist spinner with all-rounder de Grandhomme being the fifth seam bowling option.
