WTC Final Score: India under Virat Kohli in final stages of competitions

Before this match, India under Kohli had lost in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup.

That loss had come two years after India was defeated by Pakistan in the 2017 Champions Trophy final, also under Kohli’s captaincy.

These are the only three matches in ICC knockout stages that India has played with Kohli as captain. India’s next appearance in an ICC tournament will be in the T20 World Cup 2021, which is scheduled to be played in India.

Tim Southee scalped four wickets as India was bundled out for 170 in the second innings on the Reserve Day of the ongoing World Test Championship (WTC) final at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday. The inspired show with the ball ensured that New Zealand will need to score 139 runs in a minimum of 53 overs to win the title.
