Kyle Jamieson Pass Time
With skipper Kane Williamson and experienced batsman Ross Taylor at the crease, New Zealand is at 101/2. After Kyle Jamieson’s heroics, India was bowled out for 217 runs to pass the time Kyle Jamieson was seen playing table tennis.
“Wet weather has returned to the Hampshire Bowl so it’s table tennis for now,” tweeted BlackCaps.
“It continues to drizzle and we have to state the obvious. Start of play on Day 4 has been delayed,” BCCI tweeted.
New Zealand Won The Third Day
Earlier in the day, Devon Conway and Kane Williamson frustrated the Indian bowlers, as New Zealand won the third day of the ongoing final.
Williamson (12*) and Ross Taylor(0*) were both unbeaten at the crease as New Zealand scored 101/2.
Postponed Ongoing Final
The ongoing final was postponed on Day 1 owing to weather, while Day 2 saw early stumps called due to poor lighting. On the fifth afternoon, a decision on whether or not to use the Reserve Day will be made.

The rain Gods were not kind on Day 4 of the World Test Championship (WTC) final between India and New Zealand, after weather-related disruptions on the first three days of play.
A glance at the weather prediction for Southampton paints a bleak picture. The day’s overall probability of precipitation is 67 percent, with 87 percent humidity. Throughout the day, there is a potential of light rain, which might stymie play for at least the first two sessions.
