WATCH- Virat Kohli takes a splendid catch to remove Tom Latham during the first innings of WTC final

Team India is taking on New Zealand in the inaugural World Test Championship (WTC) final that started from Friday at Southampton.

Put in to bat first, Virat Kohli & Co. notched up a decent 217 on board before they were all bundled out in the 93rd over.

In response, the Black Caps started well as their openers Devon Conway, and Tom Latham guided their way through India’s pacers to punch 70 runs on board. However, off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin had other plans for his team.

The wily tweaker put an off-side field for Latham and forced him to go over covers. The instance happened in the second delivery of the thirty-fifth over when Ashwin bowled a loopy ball outside off and instigated Latham to drive.

Doing exactly as India had planned, Latham drove the ball, but since it was outside off, the Christchurch-born couldn’t control it and ended up giving a catch at short covers.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli jumped high in the air to grab the opportunity and took a splendid catch to remove Latham.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) put a compiled snippet at the end of Day 3, which featured Kyle Jamieson’s fifer, Latham’s previous cover drives from the day and Ashwin’s talismanic ball to get a breakthrough.

Here is the video:

Meanwhile, New Zealand were stationed at 101/2 at the end of the third day’s play. Fans had to face another disappointment in the high-octane thriller as first session of Monday was washed off due to rain Gods playing a spoilsport.

WATCH- Josh Inglis plays a reverse scoop against Nathan Buck during T20 Blast 2021

Leicestershire squared off against Northamptonshire at the County Ground in Northampton during the 48th match of the T20 Blast 2021.

Opting to bat first, Leicestershire openers Josh Inglis and Scott Steel put up a paltry 32 run partnership before the latter was dismissed by Tom Taylor.

The next batter Arron Lilley played second fiddle as Inglis meandered his way out of the strategies adopted by Dam Rossington & Co. and smashed the ball all around the park.

Unfortunately, Lilly departed for a well made 29-ball 44 laced with three boundaries and as many sixes. Leicestershire skipper Colin Ackermann then came in and rotated as much strike as possible to let the in-form Inglis face the major chunk of deliveries.

Inglis bludgeoned the opponents and played an exuberant inning by combining innovative and orthodox strokes. The Australian cricketer played one such peculiar shot in the sixteenth over against pacer Nathan Buck.

Inglis got into position to scoop a ball over short fine leg as Buck pitched the delivery wide outside off-stump. Taking cognizance of the same, Inglish reverse scoop to ladle the white leather to the third man fence.

The official handle of Leicestershire Foxes posted the ingenious shot on Twitter.

Here is the video:

Meanwhile, Leicestershire posted a mammoth 200/2 on board in their allotted twenty overs. In response, Northamptonshire could only muster 166/7 in their innings and lost the encounter by 34 runs.

Inglis recorded his career-best score of 103 in the shortest format of the game, and his side registered their maiden victory of the T20 Blast. The 26-year-old was also given the ‘Player of the Match’ for his heroic exploits.
