Rahul Dravid's era is on after India contributed to a massive win by 73 runs in the third and final match of the T20I series at Eden Gardens in Kolkata against New Zealand.
On a dew evening, Rohit decided to bat first with his opening partner Ishan Kishan knocked the team off to a flier scoring 69 runs in the powerplay. Rohit was smacking everything and raced off to 39* off just 17 balls.
However, Mitchell Santner pegged back India twice in his first over by getting rid of Ishan and Suryakumar Yadav. On the other side, Rohit marched on and brought up his second fifty of the series.
The Iyers - Shreyas and Venkatesh - rebuilt with a few boundaries but they too got out in quick succession. India's innings were going nowhere only to be saved by late cameos by Harshal Patel and Deepak Chahar to reach the score of 184 runs, which now was in the zone of a good score.
Axar Patel was prepping for the Test matches as he took three wickets one after the other quickly as he pegged the visitors early.
Martin Guptill got a reprieve, he made it count and went on to score another fifty. However, once he got out to Yuzvendra Chahal it all fell apart for the T20 World Cup finalists.
No one was able to score much and when they wanted to, lost their wicket as eventually, they fell 73 runs short of the target.
Even though they have won coach Rahul Dravid said that they need to keep their feet on the ground knowing that New Zealand had a quick turnaround and have played four games in eight days, going into the Test series.
