The speedster’s mistake was brought to notice ensuing his over after which Bumrah was seen rushing back into the dressing room to swap shirts. The moment offered some much needed comic relief to Bumrah who endured an otherwise gruelling day on the pitch.

The Black Caps were able to dip themselves out of the soup the found themselves in as they went onto pull off a crucial 32 run lead. In reply, India found themselves in a quagmire with the side losing both Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill.

With a reserve day slated for the final, India will step out on day 6 looking to save the test match. The side looks extremely unlikely to win the clash from here with a draw being the best result the team can salvage henceforth.

Elsewhere, New Zealand will be well aware of the tight hold grip they have over India. And with their quicks breathing fire, the Black Caps can easily end up winning their first major international triumph come Wednesday.
