The Virat Kohli-led side, however, landed in the city without head coach Anil Kumble, who is expected to arrive later in the evening.

Despite the tie having no effect on the outcome of the series, Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) sources said it would be a full house at the Eden with tickets being almost sold out.

After middle order veteran Yuvraj Singh (150) and former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's (134) fireworks at the Barabati Stadium, the demand for tickets for the final tie went up.
