    Colin de Grandhomme walks in now.

  • 10:55 AM IST

  • 10:55 AM IST

    Chris Jordan to Tim Seifert, DOT BALL!

  • 10:55 AM IST

    Chris Jordan to Tim Seifert, FOUR! 11 NEEDED FROM 4 NOW! Full toss, outside off, Seifert backs away and gets it over mid off. The fielder runs back, dives to pull it back in but it is in vain!

  • 10:53 AM IST

    Chris Jordan to Tim Seifert, WIDE! The bowler cannot be blamed for that. Tim backs away to the leg side and Jordan bowls it wide outside off. TS reaches out, looking to carve it away but misses. Jordan is not happy with that call. 15 NEEDED FROM 5.

  • 10:53 AM IST

    Chris Jordan to Tim Seifert, 2 RUNS. Full and outside off, Seifert gets down and across and scoops it wide of fine leg, for a couple. 16 needed from 5.

  • 10:51 AM IST

    Right. The players are back out in the middle. Chris Jordan is the man decided by England. He changes ends though. Not quite sure what is the rule. Nasser Hussain believes that both bowlers should be bowling from one end – whichever be it. Martin Guptill and Tim Seifert are the openers. Looks like Colin de Grandhomme will bat at 3. Here we go…

    How ironic is this? New Zealand scored 17 off the first over of this match. And they need 18 off the last over to win the series. Southee missed his length twice in that Super Over and was punished brutally. 18 is a bit too much to get but on this ground, can anyone say anything? Who will be England’s Jofra Archer or Ben Stokes tonight?

  • 10:45 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Eoin Morgan, 2 RUNS. Nice delivery to finish. Low full toss and around middle, Eoin drags this wide of long on and comes back for the second. NEW ZEALAND NEED 18 TO WIN!

  • 10:45 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Jonny Bairstow, 1 RUN. Around middle, pushed to long on for a run. JB wants the second but Morgan rightly sends him back. 15 OFF 5.

  • 10:44 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Jonny Bairstow, SIX! Jonny time! Southee goes length and Bairstow sends him north. Around middle, Jonny goes deep in his crease and swings it miles over long on! 14 OFF 4.

  • 10:43 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Eoin Morgan, 1 RUN. Around middle, just short of a yorker, worked through mid-wicket for a single. 8 OFF 3.

  • 10:43 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Eoin Morgan, SIX! First of the big hits in the Super Over! 7 off 2. Right in the slot, a length ball, around off, Morgan gets underneath it and sends it sailing over long on!

  • 10:42 AM IST

    Tim Southee to Jonny Bairstow, 1 RUN. Full on middle, swung down the ground to long on for a single.

  • 10:41 AM IST

    New Zealand bowled better than England but lost it towards the end. They started well, let it loose after Morgan got out, then got it back, only to lose it again. Here come the players again. Bairstow and Morgan are the openers. Tim Southee has taken the responsiblity of bowling the Super Over.

  • 10:40 AM IST

    We did feel that 146 may not be enough in 11 overs on this ground. But at 39/3, it seemed like New Zealand had it in their bag. But then Bairstow took over and got it down to 47 from 25 balls before his departure triggered a collapse. And then, we had a Neesham nightmare or a Jordan special – whichever way you look at it.

  • 10:38 AM IST

    Seen everything now. Almost 300 scored in a 22-over match. And a Super Over at the end of it. The last match of the T20I series has fittingly boiled down to this.

  • 10:36 AM IST

    10.6 James Neesham to Chris Jordan, FOUR, FOUR! IT IS A SUPER OVER! Everyone is smiling. Neesham cannot believe the Christmas gift he just gave. Jordan smiles and feels he was just two metres from winning it here itself for his side. A full toss, around middle, Chris pulls it behind square leg, one bounce and into the fence!

  • 10:35 AM IST

    5 needed off the final ball. Super Over? Six?

  • 10:35 AM IST

    10.5 James Neesham to Chris Jordan, 2 runs, Full and around middle, swung through mid-wicket for a brace.

  • 10:34 AM IST

    10.4 James Neesham to Chris Jordan, SIX, SIX! That has gone off the toe end! A high full toss outside off, Jordan throws his bat at it but does not get it cleanly. Trent Boult gets across from sweeper, leaps for the catch but it sails over!

  • 10:33 AM IST

    Chris Jordan walks in. Remember that second T20I?

  • 10:32 AM IST

    10.3 James Neesham to Tom Curran, out, OUT! Caught at short third man! A length ball, pretty wide outside off, Curran throws his bat at it and gets a thick outside edge. The ball flies thick and fast but straight to Colin de Grandhomme at a very fine short third man! Well done, Mr. Southee. Who keeps a short third man so fine? Well, you did.

  • 10:32 AM IST

    10.2 James Neesham to Sam Billings, 1 run, Outside off, on a length, punched down the ground. The ball races away but Tim Southee at mid off slides across to his right to stop the ball. Just a single. 13 needed from 4 balls.

  • 10:32 AM IST

    10.1 James Neesham to Sam Billings, 2 runs, Yorker on middle, dug out back past the bowler. Mid off gets across and slides but by that time, two runs are taken!

  • 10:29 AM IST

    9.6 Tim Southee to Sam Billings, leg byes, 1 run, The batsman failed to make contact and was hit low on the pads. They pick up a single. Leg bye given by the umpire.

  • 10:29 AM IST

  • 10:28 AM IST

    9.4 Tim Southee to Sam Billings, 1 run, Outside off, Billings carves this high in the air. Guptill comes running in from sweeper but the ball lands in front! A run taken.
