India scored a stunning 73-run win over New Zealand at Eden Gardens to complete a clean sweep in a 3-match T20I series. The Men in Blue avenged the defeat in the T20 World Cup 2021 by winning three head-to-head matches against Kiwi.
New captain Rohit Sharma won for the third time in the series and was elected as the header. Sharma decided to chase for the first two games, but India wanted another challenge in the Kolkata T20I.
Sharma opened the round with Ishan Kishan and add 69 runs for the first wicket. Kishan lost the bat after scoring 29 runs, but Sharma completed his 26th half-century in T20I cricket.
New Zealand’s reserve captain Mitchell Santner tried to turn the game in his team’s favor by taking three quick hits in quick succession. However, runs continued in India’s innings, and the home team finished with a total of 184 runs.
Captain Rohit is the top scorer with 31 tackles 56. Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Venkatesh Iyer and Deepak Chahar have hit 20 runs. Santner was New Zealand’s best pitcher, finishing first with 3/27 in four rounds.
Chasing 185 for a third T20I, the Blackcaps lost roosters at regular intervals. Martin Guptill fought as a lone warrior. However, a disciplined bowling effort from Man of the Match, Axar Patel, Harshal Patel, Venkatesh Iyer and Yuzvendra Chahal secured India a 73-run win.
Axar threw a magic ball with a score of 3/9 and took home the Man of the Match award. Captain Rohit Sharma has been named the Man of the Series for his 159 runs.
