After claiming the series 2-0 by winning the first two matches of the T20I series against New Zealand, Team India will look to continue their dominance over the Blackcaps and aim for whitewash by winning the last T20I of the series here at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Sunday.
India T20 captain Rohit Sharma opted to bat first against New Zealand after winning the toss of the third T20I. Among major changes in the line-up, Ishan Kishan walks in for rested KL Rahul while Yuzvendra Chahal plays for R Ashwin.

The average score at The Eden Gardens, Kolkata is 142, which proves that this is a low-scoring pitch. The humidity is generally on the higher side in Kolkata which means that just like in the first two matches the dew will play a big role. The winning captain should look to chase.
The temperature in Kolkata will be around 22 to 30 degrees celsius on Sunday. The humidity will be at 63 per cent during the 3rd T20I match.
