Southampton: Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami had a brilliant morning session at Southampton on Day 5 of the ongoing World Test Championship final as he picked up a couple of crucial wickets and helped the Virat Kohli-side get back into the game. Not only did he win hearts with his bowling, but he did something bizarre that is gaining traction on social space.Also Read - Jasprit Bumrah on Standby to Lead India in 5th Test vs England if Rohit Sharma's Misses Out: Report

The pacer was spotted wearing a towel during the game. He was doing it because of the chilly nature of the weather that is there in Southampton. So, in order to keep his lower back warm – he was seen doing that. But again, fans found it funny and hence reacted to Shami’s latest act.

Shami picked up the two crucial wickets of the experienced Ross Taylor and BJ Watling. The two wickets could actually prove to be quite decisive in the eventual outcome of the WTC final.

Shami would be a key bowler for India in the tour of England where the team will also play five Tests against England after the one-off WTC final.

Meanwhile, the first session of Day 5 did not start in the best manners as India went wicket-less in the first hour. However, they did not let New Zealand score freely too and after the Drinks break, it all changed. Shami, Bumrah, and Ishant all found their lengths.

NZ is 135 for five at lunch and India would feel they have their noses in front at this point in time. Skipper Kane Williamson is on 19* and he holds the key for NZ from here on in.
