WTC Final: The Indian cricket team is playing the final match of the second edition of the World Test Championship at the Kennington Oval in London. After winning the toss in this match, Indian captain Rohit Sharma decided to bowl first. But this decision has neither proved to be effective till now nor does Team India seem to be getting any benefit from it. Batting first, the Kangaroo team scored 469 runs in the first innings. In response, the Indian team was reduced to 296 runs. Australia got a lead of 173 runs on the basis of first innings. By the end of the third day, the Australian team's score had reached 123 losing 4 wickets.

On the second day, Ravindra Jadeja took two wickets for India and Siraj and Umesh Yadav took one wicket each. With this, Jadeja, who won the IPL to CSK with his batting, put up a strong performance at the Oval. First he contributed 48 runs with the bat. After that, after taking two wickets in the second innings, he made a record in his name. After taking the wicket of Travis Head, he has moved to the fourth position in terms of taking the most Test wickets by all left arm spinners worldwide. He has left behind former India legend Bishan Singh Bedi.
