Indian captain Virat Kohli goes all mettlesome taking the lead in WTC Final against New Zealand. The right-handed top-ordered batsman continues to thrive on 44 and not out. Kohli had batted for 124 balls, and Rahane was 29 of 79. Their partnership was worth 58.
Williamson chose to field after winning the toss, however, cloudy conditions still prevail. India’s spectacular performance had to cut short from leaving 33.2 overs remaining due to rains. By the end of Day 2, India scored 146/3 with 64.4 overs. The final began on Saturday after New Zealand won the toss and chose to play to their strengths by omitting spinner Ajaz Patel in favor of an all-pace attack led by seam-bowling allrounder Colin de Grandhomme.
