India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly rings the “famous” Eden Gardens bell


BCCI President Sourav Ganguly rings the bell at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata

With international cricket returning to Kolkata after almost two years, President of the Board of Cricket in India (BCCI) Sourav Ganguly rang the “famous” bell before the start of the third T20I between India and New Zealand at the Eden Gardens Stadium on Sunday. The BCCI had earlier announced that former Indian captain Ganguly would ring the bell to start the third T20I between the Men in Blue and the Blackcaps. India defeated New Zealand by 73 runs on Sunday to secure a clean sweep in the three-match series.

The video was posted by the Indian cricket team’s official Instagram handle. “That moment when Mr. Sourav Ganguly, president, BCCI rang the famous Eden Gardens bell to start the proceedings,” the post captioned.

After choosing to bat first, India managed to score a total of 184/6 from 20 overs, thanks to captain Rohit’s 56 and some notable contributions from the team’s lower middle order. In response, New Zealand were bowled out for 111 when the Indian bowlers thinned out the opposition at the Eden Gardens. Martin Guptill scored the Kiwis with a good score of 36 balls 51 while Axar Patel was the bowlers’ choice for India after scoring figures of 3/9.

This is India’s first series victory under new head coach Rahul Dravid and new T20I captain Rohit Sharma.

Virat Kohli, who gave up the T20 captaincy after India’s early retirement in the T20 World Cup, is rested for the series, along with key players such as Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja among others.

Kohli will also miss the first match of the upcoming two-match Test series against the Kiwis, which starts on November 25 in Kanpur. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the team in the absence of Kohli, who will resume his duties in the second Test in Mumbai.
