New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson had to face the wrath of Indian fans after he dismissed Virat Kohli on Day 3 of the ongoing World Test Championship final at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

Resuming the day at 146/3, Virat Kohli and his deputy Ajinkya Rahane tried their best to keep the Kiwi bowlers at bay but failed to score runs.

Jamieson bowled a brilliant delivery to beat Kohli’s defence and he was found in front of the stumps. The 32-year-old batsman went back to the pavilion without adding to his overnight score of 44 runs.

Soon after Kohli’s dismissal, fans slammed the New Zealand pacer on social media and even went on to abuse him. Some of the netizens also urged Virat’s IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to cancel Kyle Jamieson’s contract this year.

Jamieson was the pick of the bowlers for Kane Williamson & Co. as he took a five-wicket haul in the first innings, including the scalps of Rohit Sharma and Rishabh Pant.

After India were dismissed for a paltry score of 217 runs on Day 3, Tom Latham and Devon Conway were impressive for New Zealand.

Latham and Conway stitched a crucial partnership of 70 runs for the opening wicket stand before Ravichandran Ashwin provided India its first breakthrough.

At the end of the third day’s play, Kiwis were at 101/2 with Kane Williamson (12*) and Ross Taylor (0*) at the crease.
