After beating New Zealand in Jaipur and Ranchi, Team India has now reached Kolkata, where its target will be to clean the Kiwi team. This is Rohit Sharma’s first series after becoming the regular T20 captain, in which he has won the toss in the first two matches. This has helped them to take advantage of the situation, as well as the performance of the bowlers and the batsmen has also been good. Before the start of the third and final match of the T20 series between India and New Zealand, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has cautioned both the teams about dew.
Ganguly took a close look at the pitch on Friday and spoke to curator Sujan Mukherjee and CAB president Avishek Dalmiya. Like the first two matches of the T20 series, dew in this match too is likely to fall after 7.30 pm. Apart from this, a special type of spray will be used to reduce the effect of dew in this match as well. Ganguly believes that the dew factor can be very effective during the third T20 match. During a conversation with reporters at the Eden Gardens, Sourav Ganguly said, “It is a very good pitch for the match, as is often given for a match at the Eden Gardens. Dew can play a big role during the match and now it has to be seen what happens.
Let us tell you that Rohit had scored 264 runs in ODI cricket at the Eden Gardens itself and winning the first series as a captain by a margin of 3-0 would be gold for him. Apart from this, it will help coach Rahul Dravid to adapt to a new role after such a spectacular win. Within a week of this, the Test series against New Zealand is going to start. Rohit and Dravid would now like to test the reserve players by giving them a chance. In case the sixth bowler is selected, Venkatesh Iyer can be bowled. Rituraj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal and Ishan Kishan will be hoping that the captain will give them a chance in this match.
