Indian opener Shubman Gil he feels that the bad light has deprived them of a chance to get a crack Ross Taylor and make a further entry into New Zealand’s beat on the third day of the World Cup final, New Zealand finished at 101 for two, with Devon Conway, 54, fired in a punch.
“This (Conway) was a crucial gateway for us and I feel that if we could buy a few overs to Ross Taylor, we could have a few more straps.
“Tomorrow we will have a slight advantage, as both batsmen (Taylor and Taylor) Kane Williamson) are relatively new to wetting, “Gill told a news conference.
Gill acknowledged that this was a problem as they failed to cross 250 against New Zealand five times in a row.
“I don’t think we had too much time to prepare for the tests we played in New Zealand (in 2020), as the focus was more on ODI and T20. As you said, we failed to pass 250 in the last five tests.
“We were also in a stable position in this test, but we lost a few early weekends today. But we hope that if we have some time, we will pass 250 in the next inning,” he replied.
Jill praised Kyle Jamieson for his five-wing, but also felt that the Indian rhythms did not shake the green, although he bowled well during the last two sessions.
“He (Jamieson) bowled well during the first spell, but didn’t get much wicket. But he got his prize today and I feel like our bowling also bowled well. Chances didn’t work out. Hopefully, tomorrow is a new day and it will bring us some luck, “said the talented bully.
