  • 4:36 PM IST

    The New Zealand players are in a huddle and Southee is having a word with his troops as we await to see who it will be for India who walk out for the Super Over. It is going to be KL Rahul and Indian skipper, Virat Kohli who will try and do the job for the hosts. Can they do it? It’s going to be KL Rahul who will take the strike.

  • 4:32 PM IST

    So this time India need 14 runs to win but they do not have Rohit Sharma, the start from the plast Super Over. It is not going to be an easy task for the Indian batters. It will be interesting to see whether Southee who is also the skipper today bowls the Super Over or will he give it to someone else? Remember he was unable to defend 18 in the previous Super Over. It is going to be Southee. the skipper wants to do it for his side and will look to put the last Super Over behind and finally win one for New Zealand.

    Needing 18 off the last three, New Zealand had Taylor and Seifert, the well-set batters in the crease. But the trio of Bumrah, Saini and Shardul changed the tie completely.

  • 4:18 PM IST

    Would you believe it? For the second game running, we are going to the Super Over and New Zealand have once again thrown it away and extended this game. They were cruising and needed just 18 off 18 with two set batsmen but once again they threw it in the final over and have failed to score 7 which was needed. They have scored 6 and this game has gone to Super Over. Shardul Thakur you beauty! Last game it was Shami who defended 9. Shardul has done a tougher job and defended 7 in the last over! Wow! Just wow! The never die attitude of this Indian side has once again taken the game to another Super Over and New Zealand just cannot find a way to get rid of the dilemma called the Super Over.

  • 4:17 PM IST

    19.6 Shardul Thakur to Mitchell Santner, out, 1 run, OUT! RUN OUT! IT IS A SUPER OVER! For the second time in a row, India have managed to take it into a Super Over when they seemed down and out.

  • 4:15 PM IST

    Scott Kuggeleijn is in now. He won’t be on strike. Santner needs to score 1 to take this to Super Over and 2 to win this game. Can he get the couple?

  • 4:15 PM IST

A slower ball, full and on middle, Mitchell looks to loft it over mid off but ends up hitting it high up in the air. Dube settles under it and takes it. Are we in for another Super Over here? Surely not right?

  • 4:15 PM IST

    19.1 Shardul Thakur to Ross Taylor, out, OUT! That has gone a long, long way in the air… Iyer has taken it. 7 needed in 7. Are New Zealand going to crumble again? They will surely be nervous. Not to forget, they needed 3 in 5 balls in the last game and this time they need 4 more. A full ball on middle, Taylor looks to whip it on the leg side but it goes off the top edge. It goes high up in the air towards deep mid-wicket where Iyer takes a good catch falling forward.

  • 4:05 PM IST

    7 needed off 6, surely New Zealand will take it home, right? Or will India once again pull out a rabbit out of the hat and either defend it or drag this game into Super Over? Shardul Thakur will have to do what Mohammed Shami did in the previous game. The big difference is Thakur has 2 runs less to play with.
