New Zealand's innings

Axar Patel's three-wicket haul followed by two wickets by Harshal Patel helped India claim a 73-run victory over New Zealand in the third and final T20I of the series here at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata on Sunday. Deepak Chahar, Yuzvendra Chahal and Venkatesh Iyer also chipped in with one wicket each. For Blackcaps, Martin Guptill was the lone worrier as he scored 51 runs on 36 balls. 

New Zealand 111 in 17.2 overs Deepak Chahar takes the final wicket to hand India 73 run victory over New Zealand. 

New Zealand 95/9 in 16.1 overs Harshal Patel takes his 2nd wicket of the match as he removes Ish Sodhi on 9. Suryakumar Yadav takes a simple catch on long-on. India one wicket away from a clean sweep. 

New Zealand 93/8 in 15.1 overs Venkatesh Iyer claims his first wicket in international cricket as Rohit Sharma takes a simple catch of Adam Milne. Lokie Ferguson has joined Ish Sodhi in the middle.

New Zealand 84/7 in 13.1 overs Another excellent throw by Ishan Kishan this time he took no help from Pant as it is a direct hit. Blackcaps' captain Mitchell Santner is back in the pavilion after scoring two runs in four balls.  

New Zealand 76/6 in 12.3 overs Wickets falling like a pack of cards as another one bites the dust. Harshal Patel removes James Neesham on 3. Pant takes a brilliant catch that went miles up in the sky. 

New Zealand 76/5 in 12 overs Runout was the last thing New Zealand wanted and Tim Seifert gets runout on 17. Brilliant throw by Ishan Kishan from the deep and Pant takes off the bails in no time. The run rate has claimed up to almost 14. 

New Zealand 70/4 in 11 overs Yuzvendra Chahal removes dangerous Martin Guptill on 51. The batter goes for the big shot and Suryakumar Yadav takes an easy catch on the boundary line. 

New Zealand 41/3 in 9 overs Tim Seifert flick Chahal for a boundary while Guptill betters it with a no-look six followed by a sweep shot for a boundary. 16 runs from the over.

New Zealand 30/3 in 5 overs Axar Patel has taken three wickets from his three overs so far. He removed Daryl Mitchell on five, Mark Chapman on duck and Glenn Phillips on zero as well. Martin Guptill is trying his level best to keep the run chase on target but he needs support from the other end. 

India's innings

Rohit Sharma's imperious form was on full display as he laid the platform for an above par score of 184/7 against New Zealand in the third and final T20 International here on Sunday. In his bid to test the team's character by batting first, the skipper led the way with a 56 off 31 balls with five fours and three sixes but despite a blazing start, the Indians stuttered in the middle overs before Harshal Patel (18 off 11 balls) and Deepak Chahar (21 not out off 8 balls) used their long handles which fetched 50 runs in last five overs.

 

India 184/7 in 20 overs Brilliant hitting by Deepak Chahar as he hit two boundaries and a six in the last over to collect 19 runs from the last over

India 165/7 in 19 overs Harshal Patel welcomes Lokie with a six. The bowler strikes back with his wicket, pushed him on the backfoot and Harshal hits the wicket with his bat. Nine runs from the over. 

India 156/6 in 18 overs Harshal Patel smash the ball straight towards Lokie Ferguson on the boundary line but he fails to collect it and the ball goes for a four. It has been that kind of a day for Kiwis on the field. Eight runs from the over. 

India 148/6 in 17 overs Shreya Iyer fail to convert the good start into a big innings. He departs on 25 in 20 balls. Harshal Patel and Axar Patel are at the crease for Team India. 

India 140/5 in 16 overs Mitchell Santner finish with three wickets and 27 runs in his four overs. He has turned the game upside down after an explosive Powerplay by Indian batters. Boult removes Venkatesh on 20 in the 16th over. India need to finish the innings on high. 

India 127/4 in 14 overs Both the Iyers are taking India's innings forward as Shreyas cuts the ball for a boundary and Venkatesh sweeps Sodhi for a six. 13 runs from the over. 

India 108/4 in 12 overs Five runs from the over and an important wicket of Rohit Sharma. Super reflexes by Ish Sodhi as he takes a brilliant catch on his own bowling. Rohit departs on 56. Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer are in the middle for Team India. 

India 103/3 in 11 overs 100 up for Team India and fifty up for India captain Rohit Sharma. The right-hand batsman hit two boundaries against Santner to collect 13 runs from the 11th over.

India 83/3 in 9 overs Another success for New Zealand's captain for the match, Mitchell Santner as he removes Rishabh Pant on 4. Attacking bowling by the left-arm spinner. Rohit inching towards fifty. Six runs from the over. 

India 77/2 in 8 overs Big over for New Zealand! Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav depart. Kishan tries to cut but ends up cramping himself while Suryakumar goes for Inside-ut but finds Martin Guptill at covers. Two runs from Santner's first over with two wickets in it while Ish Sodhi gives six singles from his first over. 

India 69/0 in 6 overs Powerplay is over and India are scoring at 11.5 runs per over. Kishan hit Milne for back to back sixes to collect 10 runs from the 5th over while Rohit hits two fours and a six to get 20 runs from the last over of the Powerplay. 

India 39/0 in 4 overs 11 and 10 runs from the 3rd and 4th over respectively where Rohit hit Trent Boult for a six while Kishan smashes him for a boundary. In the next over, Lokie Ferguson was hit for a six by India captain. Below par bowling by Kiwis so far. The dew factor is already making an impact. 

India 18/0 in 2 overs Two boundaries from the bat of Rohit Sharma in the first over of Trent Boult. Just eight runs from the over. Positive start for Team India. Ishan Kishan also starts his innings with a boundary against Adam Milne. The Southpaw ends the over with another boundary. 18 from the first two overs. 

Let's play! Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan will open the batting for Team India while Trent Boult will kick start the bowling for New Zealand.

Playing XI 

New Zealand Martin Guptill, Daryl Mitchell, Mark Chapman, Glenn Phillips, Tim Seifert(w), James Neesham, Mitchell Santner(c), Adam Milne, Lockie Ferguson, Ish Sodhi, Trent Boult

Santner Last few games it has been wet because of the dew. There has been dew throughout. Whatever we do we have to do it well. We have been close, lost a couple of phases especially in the last game during the middle with the bat, we got off to a great start.. But that's just the way. The Indian openers have come out and built partnerships. We are not far away and hopefully, we can put up a complete game today. That's (Southee) the only change.

Rohit We are going to bat first. Pitch looks a little sticky and we want to challenge ourselves as a batting unit. We gotta try various things and this is one of them. We want to put runs on the board and give the new set of bowlers a target to defend. KL and Ashwin are rested. Ishan and Chahal come in. We are very clear as to what we want to do that's why Ishan has to wait for his opportunity, Chahal as well, he has been a champion bowler for us.
