clean
sweep
in

as
full-time

Having
won

to

the

put
up
an
impressive
show
with
bat
and
ball
to
notch
up
a
huge
win
over
the
visiting
New
Zealand
side.

After
a
disappointing
T20

outing,
where
India
failed
to
make
it
to
the
semifinals,
the
Indian
team
under
a
new

and
new

Rahul
Dravid,
dominated
the
T20
World
Cup
finalists
to
win
the

3-0.

Having
already
pocketed
the
series,
India
rested
KL
Rahul
and
R
Ashwin
for
the
final
game
of
the
series,
bringing
Ishan
Kishan
and
Yuzvendra
Chahal
into
the
side.

Opting
to
bat
first,

Rohit
Sharma
and
Ishan
Kishan
handed
India
a
strong
start,
stitching
together
an
opening
stand
of
69
off
38.
Mitchell
Santner
handed
the
visitors
the
breakthrough,
pocketing
three
quick
wickets
to
put
the
breaks
on
the
hosts.

But
quickfire
innings
from
Shreyas
Iyer
(25)
and
Venkatesh
Iyer
(20),
saw
the
hosts
steady
the
ship,
before
Harshal
Patel
(18
off
11)
and
Deepak
Chahar
(21
off
8)
piled
the
runs
for
the
hosts
in
the
lower
order
to
guide
India
to
a
strong
total
of
184/7.

In
response,
the
Indian
bowlers
put
up
a
clinical
display
as
they
bowled
out
New
Zealand
for
111
to
clinch
their
biggest
win
over
New
Zealand
in
T20Is.
Axar
Patel
led
the
attack
for
the
hosts
pocketing
three
wickets,
while
Harshal
Patel
picked
up
two.
Deepak
Chahar,
Yuzvendra
Chahal
and
Venkatesh

picked
up
a
wicket
each
to

in
17.2
overs.

Winning
Captain:
Rohit
Sharma:

It’s
important
to
start
well.
Whenever
I
bat
it’s
always
been
my
mindset
to
give
the
team
a
good
start.

Once
you
see
the
pitch
and
know
the
conditions,
you
know
what
you
need
to
do
as
a
batter.
It
was
coming
on
to
the
bat
nice
in
the
Powerplay
so
you
want
to
get
a
good
start
and
carry
on.

We
had
a
plan.
Wouldn’t
say
it
worked
out
pretty
well
but
the
way
we
finished
off

was
happy
with
the
way
the
lower
order
finished.
The
way
Axar
bowled.
KL’s
form
is
very
critical
for
the
team.
The
middle
order
didn’t
get
much
opportunity.
The
spinners
did
the
job
for
us.

Harshal
did
well
the
last
two
games,
and
the
spinners
did
the
job
for
us
in
the
entire
series.
Ashwin,
Axar,
and
then
Chahal
bowling
after
a
long
period
of
time
did
well.
Venkatesh
bowling
those
overs
with
the
skill
he
has
can
be
useful
going
forward.
If
you
see
the
teams
going
around
the
world,
they
bat
very
deep.
Number
8
and
9
can
play
a
big
role.
Harshal
when
he
plays
for
Haryana,
he
opens
the
batting
for
them
so
he’s
a
good
batter.
Deepak,
we
saw
what
he
did
in
Sri
Lanka.
I’ve
grown
up
playing
on
cement
and
concrete
pitches
back
in
the
day
and
once
I
started
opening
the
batting,
that
changed
my
approach.
Picking
the
length,
I
wouldn’t
say
it
comes
naturally
but
I’ve
practiced
a
lot
playing
those
shots
[to
the
short
ball]
but
I’ve
gotten
out
to
that
shot
many
times
also.
When
you
have
a
strength,
you
have
to
play
to
it
and
not
worry
about
getting
out
and
express
yourself.
Playing
the
short
pitched
ball
is
one
of
my
strengths
so
I
just
try
to
play
to
that
and
get
the
maximum
result.
You
want
to
go
out
there
and
express
yourself
well.


Losing
captain:
Mitchell
Santner:

Yeah
tough
one
to
predict
(dew).
They
bowled
really
well,
especially
Axar

three
wickets
in
the
power
play.
Credit
to
them.
I
think
we
were
probably
a
little
bit
off.
We
came
up
against
a
very
good
Indian
side
and
they
are
tough
to
beat
at
home.

The
way
they
batted
at
the
top
put
us
under
pressure
early.
(Missing
Williamson)
Obviously
a
great
player
for
us
and
with
the
Test
matches
coming
up,
it’s
understandable
that
other
guys
would
get
a
chance
and
it
was
an
opportunity
to
see
different
guys
in
different
roles
but
India
is
a
very
tough
side
and
they
showed
that
again.
(Positives)
The
way
Guptill
batted
at
the
top.
He’s
in
great
form
and
Chappy
with
a
fifty
in
the
first
game
were
positives.
We’ll
reflect
on
what
we
did
wrong
and
what
we
could’ve
done.


Axar
Patel:

When
I
practice
I
vary
my
pace
and
think
what
the
batsman
will
do.
I
try
to
vary
my
pace
and
read
the
batsmen’s
mind.
This
wicket
had
a
little
help
for
spinners.
I
was
bowling
normally
as
the
wicket
was
helping
spinners.
Was
trying
to
bowl
good
lengths.
Feeling
good
and
confident
as
it
has
been
a
good
year
and
I
will
take
that
confidence
forward.
Obviously
if
you
take
27
wickets
in
a
series
you
think
you
can
do
anything.
I
just
reflect
on
what
I
used
to
do
and
what
changes
I
make
and
what
works
for
me.


India
head
coach:
Rahul
Dravid:

It
was
a
really
good
series
win.
Everyone
played
really
well
right
through
the
series.
It’s
nice
to
start
well
but
we’ve
got
to
keep
our
feet
on
the
ground.

It’s
not
easy
for
New
Zealand
to
show
up
after
a
World
Cup
final
and
play
three
games
in
six
days.
We
have
to
keep
our
feet
on
the
ground
and
learn
some
things
on
the
way
forward.

Long
journey
ahead
for
the
next
ten
months.

It’s
been
really
good
to
see
some
of
the
younger
guys
come
through.
We
gave
opportunities
to
some
guys
who
haven’t
played
a
lot
of
cricket
in
the
last
few
months
with
some
more
experienced
guys
taking
a
break.
We’ve
seen
some
good
learnings
and
going
forward
we
need
to
keep
developing
those
skills
going
forward.
It’s
really
great
to
see
that
we’ve
got
options
and
can
mix
and
match.
It’s
going
to
be
a
long
season
between
now
and
the
next
World
Cup
being
realistic
with
how
much
cricket
some
of
our
experienced
players
will
play.
There’s
only
three
or
four
guys
from
here
going
on
to
Kanpur
for
the
Tests
and
will
need
to
be
up
at
7:30
am,
so
maybe
the
other
guys
will
be
able
to
have
a
late
night
and
enjoy
themselves.


Yuzvendra
Chahal:

I
was
working
especially
on
my
googlies
and
my
topspinners
and
bowling
more
of
them
which
is
helping
me
to
confuse
the
batsmen
so
I’m
pretty
happy
with
that.


Venkatesh
Iyer:

I
think
that’s
what
I’m
in
the
team
for,
batting
and
bowling
so
it’s
good
to
get
a
bowl
finally.
I
think
everyone
aspires
to
play
for
the
country
and
if
the
team
wins
the
series
comprehensively,
its
a
good
feeling.
I’ve
always
maintained
that
as
a
professional
cricketer,
you
have
to
be
flexible
as
to
where
you
will
bat.


Harshal
Patel:

(International
cricket)
It
seems
easy,
but
I
know
is
a
pendulum.
My
skillset
is
not
going
to
change
overnight
and
I’ve
had
success
doing
the
things
I
do
well.
I
tried
to
do
the
things
that
have
made
me
successful
in
the
IPL
at
international
level
as
well.
Execution
is
a
big
part
of
the
slower
ball
delivery
because
if
you
get
it
wrong,
more
often
than
not
it’ll
sail
over
the
boundary,
even
with
lower
order
batters.
You
have
to
keep
backing
yourself.
If
you’re
not
feeling
confident,
I
can
go
back
into
the
nets
to
work
on
it
but
it’s
a
delivery
I
bank
on.


Ishan
Kishan:

Boult
got
me
out
in
the
World
Cup
with
the
same
ball
so
I
knew
he
was
going
to
ball
the
same
ball
on
my
pads
and
hit
it.
(Fielding
or
keeping)
Whatever
team
asks
me
to
do!
The
coach
and
captain
asked
me
to
do
the
simple
thing,
whatever
I’ve
done
in
the
IPL.
I
just
watch
the
ball
and
like
to
hit
the
ball
hard.
The
coach
said
go
play
your
shots
and
if
you
get
out
it’s
okay.
