Rohit Sharma’s 56-run knock adopted by Axar Patel‘s three-wicket haul helped India defeat New Zealand by 73 runs within the third and closing T20I right here on the Eden Gardens on Sunday.

We have seen some of the skills available to us and we have to keep building on those skills as we go forward,” he added.
