Earlier, Rohit Sharma won the toss and opted to bat first in a dew-soaked Eden Gardens. While he wanted to put the batting line-up through the grind and bowlers to defend the total, he succeeded in that.

Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan provided India with a great platform posting 69 for the first wicket. But once Ishan Kishan departed, India lost two wickets in quick succession. Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant failed with scores of 0 and 4. But Rohit continued to shoulder on India’s innings hammering 26th T20I half-century and departed after a fantastic one-handed catch by Ish Sodhi.

New Zealand were off to a good start with Martin Guptill bringing up 21 in two overs. But they soon lost the momentum when Daryl Micthell departed in the third over. Axar Patel was the architect, taking two wickets in the over as New Zealand’s struggle began. While Guptill slammed a half-century, New Zealand kept on losing wickets as Kiwis suffered a huge 73-run loss.

@18:35: Yuzvendra Chahal is the milestone man, plays his 50th T20I.

@18:30: Rohit Sharma wins toss and surprise, he opts to bat first.

Rohit Sharma after toss: 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.

@18:20: Tim Southee and Yuzvendra Chahal share a light moment.
