On Day 5 of the World Test Championship (WTC) final in Southampton, former India opener Virender Sehwag isn’t happy with New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson’s poor batting.

Kane Williamson was undefeated at lunchtime, with 19 runs from 112 balls. In his innings, he hit two fours and scored at a strike rate of 16.96.

Sehwag reacted to the Kiwi captain’s crawl by posting a video of a beautiful small dog refusing to wake up on Twitter with the caption:

“Williamson on the pitch today. #WTC21final.”
A Hindi song played in the background along with the video, with the lyrics:

“Mujhko neend aa rahi hai sone do.” (I am feeling sleepy, let me sleep.)

Rain also caused the start of Day 5 of the WTC final to be postponed. However, as the action began, the Indian pacers dominated.

After resuming their innings at 101 for 2, the Kiwis only managed to add 34 runs in the session, losing three key wickets in the process – Ross Taylor (11), Henry Nicholls (7), and BJ Watling (1).

On Day 5 of the WTC final, Mohammed Shami ups his game.

On Day 5 of the WTC final in Southampton, Mohammed Shami was the most outstanding of all the pacers. He took India’s first wicket, catching Taylor in the covers. Shami produced a big delivery that enticed the batter to drive. Taylor attempted a stroke but lost control and was caught by Shubman Gill, who dived low to his right to make a spectacular catch.

Shami cleaned up the retiring Watling with an unplayable delivery near the end of the session. Another powerful delivery from the bowler nipped away, beating the bat’s outside edge and crashing into the stumps.

Between the two dismissals, Ishant Sharma struck again, dismissing Nicholls. In the slip cordon, the left-hander edged an away-going delivery to Rohit Sharma.

With five wickets in hand, the Kiwis trailed India by 82 runs at lunch.
