Watch: Virat Kohli, Anurag Thakur clean Eden Gardens for Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

PTI, Oct, 03 2016

Kolkata: India Test skipper Virat Kohli and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) president Anurag Thakur on Sunday swept the stands at the Eden Gardens as part of the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti.

"On the occasion of #GandhiJayanti- BCCI President Lt. @ianuragthakur, @imVkohli & #TeamIndia take part in #SwachhBharatAbhiyan #MyCleanIndia," BCCI posted on its twitter handle with an accompanying video.

 

 

Also seen were the likes of Ajunkya Rahane, Rohit Sharma and a few others.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan or Clean India Campaign on the occasion in 2014.

Meanwhile, India set a daunting target of 376 for New Zealand after getting bowled out for a score of 263 at the end of their innings. Wicketkeeper-batsman Wriddhiman Saha was unbeaten on 58, his second-consecutive half-century in the format and his fourth overall.

Rohit Sharma top-scored for the Indians in their second essay, scripting a fluent 82 off 132 balls on a difficult pitch after the hosts lost half their side cheaply, and helped lift the side to a relatively strong score.

After winning the toss and electing to bat, India piled 316 in their first innings, before dismissing New Zealand for 204. Among the team changes in the match were Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvneshwar Kumar in place of KL Rahul and Umesh Yadav for India, while Matt Henry, Jeetan Patel and Henry Nicholls filled in for Ish Sodhi, Mark Craig and regular skipper Kane Williamson, with Ross Taylor taking over the captaincy duties for the Black Caps.
