    Live WTC Final Cricket Updates IND vs NZ: In reply, India started off solidly but now has both their openers back in the hut. They lead by 32 and still have 8 wickets in hand. We believe they will try to bat time on Wednesday first, then analyze their position and think how to go about it. For New Zealand, their chances of winning this game are a lot more than their opponent’s. They will not only need to pick wickets but also restrict the run-flow. The reserve day which is Day 6 could prove to be an exciting one. Do join us for all the action. Till then, goodbye and take care!

    Southee Strikes, Rohit ‘Back in The Hut’

  • 11:20 PM IST

    IND vs NZ Live Score and Updates WTC Final: OUT! Tim Southee removes Rohit Sharma for 30. What have you done Rohit? Southee traps him beautifully! Massive wicket for India. Rohit shoulders arms to a ball that nips in and is given LBW. Southee bowling outswingers, this one swung back in, Sharma raises his blade as he chooses not to play. The ball came back in sharply, however, and struck the front pad. He knew it straight away that this was out. Southee pleads for an LBW and the umpire does not hesitate to raise his finger. Sharma has a chat with Pujara to take the review but decides not to. A complete misjudgment from Rohit Sharma and he walks back into the hut. India 51/2 & 217, lead New Zealand (249) by 19 Runs
