It was game full of excitement and drama as the West Indies beat New Zealand in the super-over to keep themselves alive at the ICC World T20 2012. However, later in the day West Indies’ semi-finals spot was confirmed.
 
PTI reported: Needing 18 to win in the Super Over, West Indies rode on Chris Gayle and Marlon's Samuels pyrotechnics to finish the game with a ball to spare at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium which saw a tied game with both teams finishing on 139 in regulation time.
 
While Gayle started the chase in the Super Over with a huge six over long-off off a no ball by Tim Southee, Sameuls completed the job with a maximum over deep mid-wicket.
