Wasim Jaffer shares a hilarious meme to describe Indian batters’ struggle against swing in WTC final

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer is largely famous for his amusing and rib-tickling responses on social media. By and large, the Mumbaikar provides a dose of entertainment to his fans with some hilarious tweets.

Once again, Jaffer gave a sight of his special sense of humour when he shared a funny meme to describe Indian batsmen’s performance on Day 3 of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand at the Rose Bowl in Southampton.

The third day began half an hour late due to bad light and wet outfield. New Zealand fast bowlers displayed tremendous bowling and dominated the proceedings right from the word go. India lost all the remaining seven wickets before tea as the Blackcaps managed to bundle them out for just 217 runs.

“Indian batsmen this morning,” Jaffer captioned his meme on Sunday.

Kiwi all-rounder Kyle Jamieson made the most impact as he went on to take the fifth five-wicket haul of his relatively short yet impressive Test career. Jamieson dismissed the likes of Rohit Sharma (34), Virat Kohli (44), Rishabh Pant (4), Ishant Sharma (4) and Jasprit Bumrah (0).

With a fifer, Jamieson set a new record for the most five-wicket hauls in the WTC, beating some well-known names like Ravichandran Ashwin and Nathan Lyon. While the New Zealander has taken the fifth fifer in his 8th match, Ashwin and Lyon have four five-wicket hauls to their names in 14 matches.

Indian vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane was their top run-getter in the first innings, scoring 49 runs from 117 deliveries. Kohli was the only other batsman to cross the 40-run mark. The Indian skipper couldn’t add a single run to his overnight score of 44 runs on Day 2.

Apart from Jamieson, Trent Boult (2/47) and Neil Wagner (2/40) bagged two wickets apiece.

Twitter reactions: Ishant Sharma strikes right before stumps after Devon Conway’s fifty on Day 3 of WTC final

The third day of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand ended with both teams sharing the equation. After bundling out the Virat Kohli-led side for 217, the Black Caps started pretty steadily, with openers Tom Latham and Devin Conway made Indian bowlers run for their money.

Latham and Conway showed spectacular grit and stood tall against the top-quality Indian pace attack featuring the likes of Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. The duo didn’t score many runs but firmed their respective ends and passed out the challenging spells.

Following the history, when the Indian team couldn’t make the initial breakthrough, the skipper gave the ball to his star spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who also took his time to draw the first blood. Ashwin dismissed set batsman Latham in the 35th over when the batter tried to play the cover drive but ended up finding the fielder at short-cover. Latham scored 30 runs from 104 deliveries, including three boundaries.

After Latham’s dismissal, Conway and Kiwi captain Kane Williamson took charge to form another strong stand. Conway showed immense patience, which rewarded him in the 44th over when he smashed the first fifty of the match.

The left-handed batter flicked a ball off Bumrah to pick three runs and reached the special feat. But little did he know that his trademark flick shot became the reason for his dismissal, which happened right before the stumps, announced early due to bad lights.

It all happened in the 49th over bowled by veteran seamer Ishant. The right-armer bowled around the pads, and Conway flicked it, but it went straight to mid-on where Shami was stationed. Shami made no mistake as he stretched himself to grab the catch to give India a reason to finish the day with heads high. New Zealand posted 101/2 on the scoreboard with Williamson and Ross Taylor at the crease.

Earlier, India were packed at 217, courtesy of Kyle Jamieson’s splendid bowling. Jamieson picked up the fifth fifer of his Test career and dominated the proceedings in the first session. For India, vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane made 49 off 117 balls, while Kohli scored 44 from 132 deliveries.
