Pant did not rating a run for 19 balls after which acquired a boundary with a flick by way of mid-wicket. Two balls later, he took the bait when Jamieson angled one on the imaginary fifth off-stump. He went for an expansive drive solely to be snapped within the third slip by Tom Latham.
As soon as the 61-run stand with Kohli had ended, Rahane (49, 119 balls) sensed that the scoreboard wanted a transfer on and began taking part in a number of photographs.
However maybe, the milestone was engaged on his thoughts and regardless of taking part in a mistimed pull-shot one ball earlier, Wagner along with his signature brief ball prevented him from reaching a well-deserved fifty.
Rahane’s disappointment was evident as he fell into the lure to play the pull-shot regardless of figuring out that Wagner had saved a deep nice leg and lengthy leg for the shot.
Ravichandran Ashwin (22) threw his bat round and acquired some helpful runs however was by no means going to final lengthy as Southee took care of him simply earlier than lunch break.
Publish lunch, Jamieson eliminated Ishant and Jasprit Bumrah off successive deliveries however Shami prevented him from finishing a hat-trick.
