New Zealand are Test cricket’s official world champions as they beat India in the WTC Final in Southampton to clinch only their second ICC trophy in cricket history. Chasing a target of 139 in 53 overs, New Zealand rode on superb knocks from captain Kane Williamson (52*) and Ross Taylor (47*) to win the ICC World Test Championship Final by 8 wickets at the Rose Bowl on Day 6. Notably, the WTC Final was marred by bad weather and rain throughout the match, with Day 1 and 4 getting washed out without a ball being bowled which is why it went to the reserve day. The Black Caps were outstanding with the ball in the first session on the reserve day which turned the tide in their favour as India got bowled out for a disappointing 170 in their second innings in good batting conditions, after resuming on their overnight score of 64 for 2.(SCORECARD)Also Read - IPL 2021 RCB vs MI Head to Head, Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Weather Forecast: Pitch Report, Predicted Playing 11s, Squads For Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Match 39 at Dubai International Stadium

    Live Cricket Score Today IND vs NZ LIVE: Virat Kohli starts by congratulating New Zealand and feels they put in a massive effort to squeeze a result and they deserved it.

    ‘Seasoned Campaigners Rising up to The Occasion’

  • 11:30 PM IST

    WTC Final Live Cricket Score IND vs NZ: The Blackcaps are well-deserved winners one has to say. They won the toss on Day 2 after the first being washed out and elected to bowl, they weren’t at their best as India dominated Day 2 but they came roaring back on Day 3. From 2 down for around 150, they bundled India out for just under 220. Jamieson was the star with a fifer. Then with the bat, they went about things slowly, Conway set things up at the start with a fifty. There was a mini-collapse in between but their skipper along with the tail helped his side take a lead. A slender one but still a handy lead.
