Wellington: New Zealand pacer Tim Southee said that when Rishabh Pant was dismissed in the second innings on the last day of the World Test Championship final, he felt the most relief. Earlier, Southee had dropped Pant’s catch off Kyle Jamieson’s delivery. Southee felt that the title was snatched from his team when the Indian wicket-keeper batsman dropped the catch at slips.
Pant’s 41-run knock came to an end shortly after lunch. He tried to play a long shot off Trent Boult, but it did not succeed. New Zealand won the ICC trophy for the first time since 2000 by registering an 8-wicket win. Talking to Matt and Jerry at Horakie Breakfast from MIQ, Southee said that dropping a catch on the cricket field is the worst feeling.
Southee said, ‘I will not lie that after dropping the catch, there was no fear that the final slipped out of hand. The way Pant plays. He takes the match away from you between five and six overs. There was a fierce competition going on and some monsters were also roaming in my mind as the catch was dropped. But I had to remove it in the next over because the next over had to be done. You have to move on. But I felt very relieved when Pant got out. That was a very bad feeling. Probably the worst when you drop catches on the field and let your teammates down.
The WTC final was great for Tim Southee. He took five wickets. The 32-year-old made a useful contribution of 30 runs with the bat in the first innings as well.
