India vs New Zealand, 3rd T20I : Rohit’s two sixes wins Super Over for India

PUBLISHED:

Guwahati: Rohit Sharma goes big straight over Tim Southee’s head as India complete a dramatic win over New Zealand. Chasing 18 runs for the win, India finish the Super Over at 20/0. With that, India clinch the first-ever T20I series win in New Zealand.

Chasing 180, New Zealand needed 20 off the final 2 overs and 9 off the last over but Mohammed Shami’s heroics meant the match went to a Super Over. Shami removed Kane Williamson for 95 and with 1 needed off the last ball of the match, cleaned up Ross Taylor.

Williamson and Martin Guptill came out to face Jasprit Bumrah in the Super Over. In superb form, Williamson followed up his 95 with a six and a four as New Zealand finished with 17 off their Super Over.

 A target which India overwhelmed in the final ball with Rohit smashing Tim Southee for two consecutive sixes.

The fourth T20 International between the two sides will be played on Friday in Wellington.
