India whitewashed New Zealand after picking up the victory in the third and final T20I match at Eden Gardens Stadium in Kolkata on Sunday.

It has been alleged that the people were selling tickets illegally as said by the police. Sixty match tickets, being sold at a higher rate, were seized from those arrested, they said. Security at the stadium and nearby areas were beefed up to check any unruly incident, a senior police officer said.
