IND vs NZ 2021: Twitter Reacts After India Complete A 3-0 Clean Sweep Against The Kiwis

The Indian team continued piling on wins at home as they registered a 3-0 clean sweep against New Zealand following a one-sided victory in the third T20I held at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Opting to bat first this time after winning the toss, India began in a terrific fashion. Openers, Ishan Kishan and Rohit Sharma put up 69 runs on the board inside the powerplay before the former was dismissed in a double-wicket over bowled by Mitchell Santner.

Rohit kept going and reached his fifty in just 27 balls but perished soon after to a one-handed stunner from Ish Sodhi. A middle-overs collapse halted the scoring rate but a couple of late cameos from Harshal Patel and Deepak Chahar ensured India reached 184.

In response, the Kiwis were jolted early when Axar Patel repeated Santner’s feat and took two wickets in an over. Martin Guptill continued his excellent form and helped himself to a fifty but didn’t receive any support from the other end.

Once Guptill was dismissed by the returning Yuzvendra Chahal, the game seemed well out of their hands and the pressure of the scoreboard forced the Kiwis to implode. They were blown away for 111 and the Men in Blue ended up winning the final T20I by 73 runs to complete a 3-0 rout.

Here’s how Twitter reacted to India’s whitewash:
