Devon Conway’s Wicket Will Give India Edge On Day Four

Shubman Gill, an Indian batsman, believes Devon Conway’s wicket came at the appropriate time for his team on Day Three of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final versus New Zealand, giving India an advantage on Day Four.

Frustrated By Devon And Kane

The Indian bowlers were frustrated by Devon Conway and Kane Williamson, and as a result, New Zealand won on Day Three of the Ageas Bowl on Sunday.

New Zealand’s score at stumps on Day Three is101/2, with Williamson(12*) and Ross Taylor(0*) unbeaten at the crease.

“Yeah, definitely it was a crucial wicket for us. If we had been able to bowl a couple of more overs to Ross Taylor, who was a new batsman for us, we might have gotten a couple more wickets. But as you said, when the play will start tomorrow we’ll have a slight edge on them because both of them are relatively new on the crease,” said Gill

“Definitely I think in the fourth innings the spinners will play a crucial role, and hopefully in this innings, as well. As the game goes on, hopefully, there will be some kind of help for the spinners.” Gill added

Bowled 217 In First Innings

India was bowled out for 217 in their first innings, with Kyle Jamieson taking five wickets. With his 49-run knock, Ajinkya Rahane was the leading scorer.

“Kyle Jamieson was bowling well. I think the first spell that he bowled, he was bowling well in that spell, and he didn’t get many wickets in the first spell, but he got his reward today. I feel our bowlers also bowled well today. The luck didn’t favor our side. Unfortunately, there was a couple that didn’t go our way, but hopefully, tomorrow is a new day and it will bring some luck to our bowlers,” said Jamieson.

“Obviously it feels good. This is what you prepare for your whole life. Having to play someone like Shami, Bumrah in the nets, obviously you get to know what international cricket is like, and obviously, when you play Australia in Australia, you tend to know where you stand as a player. It feels good when early on in your career you face these bowlers,” he added.

Gill remarked, referring to how the ongoing Test has been hampered by bad weather.

“I think both teams will definitely attempt to get a result out of this match, but if the conditions don’t go our way, then there isn’t much that both teams can do,”
