Ind vs NZ: Rohit Leads India To Their 1st T20 Series Win in NZ
Where to watch India vs New Zealand 3rd T20 LIVE streaming on Hotstar and Star Sports
India had a patient start, although they nearly lost Sharma’s wicket on the very first ball of the super over. Wicket-keeper Tim Seifert had failed to collect a ball from the deep and although Sharma was way off the mark, he narrowly made ground. After picking three off the first two balls, KL Rahul slammed a boundary off the third bowled by Southee, before picking a single off the next one.
Thus, India was left to chase 10 off two deliveries with Rohit Sharma on strike. Rohit rose to the task by hitting two consecutive sixes in the last two balls, leading his team to their first T20I series win in New Zealand. With the victory, India now leads the five-match series 3-0.
Earlier, Mohammed Shami’s superb last over restricted New Zealand from chasing the 180-run target, which led to a super over after the match was tied. The Kiwi’s came out to bat first, where the New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson scored 12 runs to set a target of 18 runs in the super over.
