Kolkata | Jagran Sports Desk: After sealing the series at the JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi, Rohit Sharma-led Team India would look to clean-sweep a 'confused' New Zealand led by Tim Southee in the third and final T20I on Sunday at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. It is expected that the Indian team might try new combinations and try out the reserve bench players.

It is expected that India might rest a few players and give chances to Ruturaj Gaikwad, Avesh Khan and Ishan Kishan. Yuzvendra Chahal, who had missed a spot in the squad of the recently concluded T20I World Cup, might also get a game in place of Axar Patel or Ravichandran Ashwin.

Here's everything you need to know about the pitch report and weather forecast at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata:
