As per the tweet, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and young pacer Mohammed Siraj were the star performers of the day.

While Jadeja remained unbeaten on 54 off 76 balls, Siraj returned with the figures of 2 for 22.

The WTC final is scheduled to be played between India and New Zealand in Southampton from June 18-22. The ICC has also allocated June 23 as a reserve day to make up for any lost time during the regular days of the final.

Most of the Indian cricketers were out of action ever since the suspension of IPL 2021 last month. They are relying on intra-squad games to get the much-needed match practice under their belt.

On the other hand, Kiwis got valuable practice for the WTC final as they played two-match Test series against England and won it by 1-0.
