Although plenty of time has been lost due to rain in the ICC World Test Championship final between India and New Zealand, both teams would still look to push for a win. From the Indian point of view, if they are to win this Test from here, their bowlers would need to step up, particularly Jasprit Bumrah, who looked off-colour on Sunday. Understandably so, when the play resumed after a delayed start to Day 5, the right arm pacer was given the first over but in a hurry to engage in some cricketing action after a washed-out day, he wore the incorrect jersey.

Notably, both the teams participating in the finals of the ICC World Test Championship, are wearing a specially designed jersey for this occasion. As per the norms, it is the name of the country that takes the centre stage in the shirt rather than the sponsors. But Bumrah forgot to wear the special shirt and came out on the field with his regular Test uniform.

It was later after finishing his first over that he rushed back before returning on the field in the correct jersey in time to start his remaining over.
