Suryakumar Yadav and Rishabh Pant failed with scores of 0 and 4. While Rohit brought up his half-century and departed after a fantastic one-handed catch by Ish Sodhi, Shreyas Iyer and Venkatesh Iyer kept the scorecard ticking.

With the series T20 series already in the pocket, Ishan Kishan and Yuzvendra Chahal got the opportunity while KL Rahul was rested out to stay fresh for the Test series, beginning in four days in Kanpur.

@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.

@18:15: No new caps handed over today. That means Avesh Khan will have to wait for his chance.


@6PM: Rohit Sharma’s love affair with Eden Gardens is well-known. Can he dominate at Eden once again?

Rohit Sharma didn’t rule out changes for the upcoming fixture either.
