8) Tim Southee
The experienced bowler had an off-day with the ball in the first innings. He was unable to claim a wicket till the end when he dismissed Ravichandran Ashwin who was threatening to score big. However, being the champion he was, Southee turned things around in the second half.
He was imperious with the ball, knocking over Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma early with his now-famous ‘three-quarter seam ball’. Southee came back to clean up the tail, setting up a rare fly slip for Shami to get caught out to. He then got Bumrah to edge one to Latham at first slip, ending with figures of 4/48 in the second.
