India and New Zealand are locking horns in the third T20I in Kolkata’s Eden Gardens. India have already bagged the series by 2-0 and they are looking to complete a white-wash.

Mitchell Santner

Rohit Sharma won yet another toss and opted to bat first. Mitchell Santner is captaining New Zealand as Tim Southee is rested and is replaced by Adam Milne. India, on the other hand, rested KL Rahul and Ravichandran Ashwin while bringing Ishan Kishan and Yuzvendra Chahal in.

Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma walked out to open the innings and gave India a blazing start. Both openers were hitting boundaries for fun and punished every New Zealand bowler. They scored 69 runs inside the powerplay without losing any wicket.

Stand-in captain Mitchell Santner came to bowl just after the powerplay. He dismissed Ishan Kishan for 29 on the second ball of the over. Suryakumar Yadav came to bat at number three. He was looking iffy on the first few balls. Santner kept bowling tight line and lengths which eventually brought Suryakumar’s downfall on the last ball of the over. He got out for a four-ball duck.

Santner didn’t stop here and dismissed Rishabh Pant in his next over to further deteriorate India’s position.
