Virat Kohli's troubles with DRS continued on day three of the World Test Championship final as the India captain's dismissal triggered a massive batting collapse.

New Zealand reached 2-101 at stumps after skittling India for just 217, with Kyle Jamieson grabbing a five-wicket haul in an exceptional display of swing bowling.

India succumbed to an all-out pace attack after resuming the day on 3-146, losing their last seven wickets for 68 runs.

Jamieson (5-31) struck at the start of each of the first two sessions as India were bowled out 30 minutes after lunch.

The 6ft 8in fast bowler landed the key wickets of Kohli (44) and Rishabh Pant (4) during a six-over opening spell with the old ball.

Jamieson struck Kohli on the pad with a ball that ducked back in to the Indian skipper, forcing the umpire to raise the finger for lbw.

Kohli decided to use DRS but was left dumbfounded when the decision stood, trudging off the ground in defeat.

It was the 17th time Kohli has opted to use DRS while batting in Tests - and the 15th time he has failed to overturn the umpire's decision.

Fans were quick to deride the Indian captain for his seemingly "selfish" use of the DRS.

Kyle Jamieson stars for New Zealand in final

Jamieson returned after lunch and with the second new ball removed both Ishant Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah off successive deliveries to cap a brilliant 22 overs of swing bowling.

Jamieson paid tribute to his teammates, starting with Williamson and including fellow seamers Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Neil Wagner, who boast a combined 206 appearances.

"It's just been nice to contribute. For me it's been an absolute pleasure coming to this group," he said.

"I've just been able to go about my business, learn off these guys and I guess just ride their coat tails a little bit."

Boult (2-47) wrapped up the innings when Ravindra Jadeja (15) gloved a leg side catch to diving wicketkeeper BJ Watling as the sun briefly came out after inclement weather had disrupted the inaugural final.

Tom Latham and Devon Conway had then guided New Zealand to 0-70 but were both dismissed before bad light ended the evening session early on Sunday.

Latham (30) was the first man out, caught by Kohli off Ravichandran Ashwin (1-20).

Conway, who scored 200 on debut against England earlier this month at Lord's, had scored 54 before falling to Mohammed Shami's catch off Ishant Sharma (1-19).

Heavy rain is forecast on Monday in a game that has already lost huge swathes of time to the weather, and even a reserve day may not be enough to produce a win.

If the outcome is a draw, the trophy and $3 million prize money will be shared.
