So that is it from another nail-biter game of the series. New Zealand's struggles in the Super Over continued and they're losing run in the shortest format continues. India are well on course for a whitewash and have made it 4-0. We still have one final game remaining from this exciting series. The 5th and final T20I will be played on Sunday, 2nd February. That match will begin at 2000 local (0700 GMT). Join us for that one. Till then, cheers!
Indian skipper, Virat Kohli, says he has learned to stay calm when the opposition is playing well and just wait for an opportunity. Further adds there couldn't have been more exciting games than the last two and that is exactly what the fans want. Mentions he had not played a Super Over till now but he has now played two. States they were down and out and they coming back shows the character of the team. Informs they initially decided to send Samson but Rahul and him had a chat and then he decided to walk out as his experience could come into play. Says Samson was fearless, he did not read the pitch that well, he went for another biggie despite getting one but that is how he plays and that is how he should continue. Ends by saying he is very proud of how his team played and how they managed to pull things back.
New Zealand skipper, Tim Southee, says it is a very tough loss, especially after the position they were in but they gave it away with their own hands. States the manner they have lost in is bad, they made it tough on themselves by giving India a sniff and that is something they can't do against such good opponents.
For his game turning final over, Shardul Thakur has been named the Man of the Match. Shardul Thakur says, he feels very good and such matches are for what they play cricket for and he is very delighted. States they never lost hope and the last game taught them that, the first ball of the last over was crucial, a wicket was needed and he got it. Ends by saying he is happy with his contribution with the bat too but he feels he should have carried on and batted for longer.
Earlier in the evening, India were on the back foot and were struggling at 88/6 but just like every champion side has a someone raising their hands up and delivering the goods, the tourists had one as well. This time it was Manish Pandey whose unbeaten 50 built the momentum and took them to a very good total of 165. Spin twins of Sodhi and Santner were the stars for the Kiwis with the ball as they were economical and chipped in with wickets.
It was Shami in the previous game and this time it was Shardul Thakur who brought this game back from the dead. Defending 6 in the final over was a herculean task and somehow he managed to pull out a rabbit off his hat and managed to drag this game into Super Over. Bumrah, unlike the previous game was back at his best and was the star with the ball. Going for just 20 in his 4 and picking up a wicket. Navdeep Saini's penultimate over was the game changing one as he went for just 4 in it and that was the building block of this win. All-in-all, India will be satisfied with their efforts.
Chasing 166, New Zealand got off to a poor start as Munro and Guptill struggled early and they lost the latter. Munro though fought the tough situation out and stitched a 74-run stand, getting his fifty in the process. But in an anti-climatic way the southpaw was run out, courtesy of a super effort from the Indian skipper. Seifert though carried along and it looked like him and Ross Taylor would take his side home. They needed just 7 off the last over but the Kiwis failed to get that and could muster only 6 and banged their chasing car into the woods and are slowly snatching the tag of chokers from South Africa.
Another Super Over and another heartbreak in it for New Zealand. Southee once again fails to defend in the Super Over and for the fourth time in a row, the Kiwis lose a Super Over. It was Rohit Sharma in the first Super Over and it is KL Rahul and Virat Kohli who are the Indian heroes. India make it 4-0, just like they made it 3-0, by winning the Super Over.
Ball 5: Southee to Kohli, FOUR! Kohli ends it in style! He takes his side 4-0 up! Another win for India in the Super Over. Shorter and on off, Kohli drags his pull through mid-wicket and it races away to the fence.
Ball 4: Southee to Kohli, 2 runs, This is brilliant! Just brilliant from the skipper. How smart was that? Knows a risk is not needed so he taps it with soft hands towards mid on. The weight on the shot is perfect so two is taken.
Ball 3: Southee to Rahul, OUT! Southee gets Rahul! India can't afford to lose a wicket now. 4 needed in 3 balls. A short one on middle, Rahul pulls, he hits it nicely but flat towards deep square leg. Kuggeleijn takes it. Samson is the new man in.
Ball 2: Southee to Rahul, FOUR! It was Rohit Sharma the last night, this time it is Rahul. A short ball on the body, Rahul pulls it over short fine leg and bags another boundary. 10 from the first two balls. 4 needed in 4 balls.
Ball 1: Southee to Rahul, SIX! That is some way to start the chase! The equation is very easy now, only 8 needed in 5 balls. Full and on middle, it is in the slog. Rahul clears his front leg and whips it high and handsome into the mid-wicket stand.
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.
So this time India need 14 runs to win but they do not have Rohit Sharma, the star from the last Super Over. It is not going to be an easy task for them. It will be interesting to see whether Southee, who is also the skipper today, bowls the Super Over himself or will he give it to someone else? Remember he was unable to defend 17 in the previous Super Over. It is going to be Southee again. 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.
Ball 6: Bumrah to Munro, 1 run, An appeal for a catch, the umpire has taken it upstairs to check whether it is a bump ball. Replays roll in and they show it has bounced. A low full toss. Munro looks to play the paddle scoop but ends up hitting it on the bounce to short fine leg. A single taken. NEW ZEALAND END WITH 13. INDIA NEED 14 TO WIN!
Ball 5: Bumrah to Munro, FOUR! Much-needed boundary! Good length ball outside off, Munro goes on his back foot and manages to loft if over point for a boundary.
Ball 4: Bumrah to Seifert, OUT! Caught! This time Seifert departs and India have a wicket. Full outside off, Seifert looks to go over point but does not time it and the fielder in the deep manages to take it safely.
Ball 3: Bumrah to Seifert, 2 runs, In air... dropped again! Second drop in the over. A short one. Seifert looks to pull but gets a top edge. It goes towards short fine leg. Rahul goes after it but ends up dropping it. Two taken.
Ball 2: Bumrah to Seifert, FOUR! Good length ball outside off, Seifert goes over covers and gets a boundary as there is no one in the deep. 6 off the first two balls.
Ball 1: Bumrah to Seifert, 2 runs, Dropped! Tough chance and Iyer cannot take it. Bumrah bangs it in a bit short on middle, Seifert goes for the pull but mistimes it. It goes behind mid-wicket. Iyer runs back and gets his hands to it but cannot hold onto it. 2 taken.
Needing 18 off the last three, New Zealand had Taylor and Seifert, the well-set batters at the crease. But the trio of Bumrah, Saini and Shardul changed the complexion of the match completely.
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 6 in the last over! Wow! Just wow! The never-say-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.

Shardul Thakur To Mitchell Santner OUT!
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. A full ball outside off, it is hit through covers for one. They go for a second but Samson throws it to the keeper and Santner is well short. MATCH TIED!
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?

Shardul Thakur To Daryl Mitchell OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! 2 needed off the last ball! Shardul Thakur is bowling a gem of an over here! 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?

Shardul Thakur To Mitchell Santner
A single! Santner slipped! Daryl Mitchell though was not interested. Shorter and on the body, it is pulled through mid-wicket. They take one. Santner looks to turn for the second but is slips. Mitchell though did not want a second.
Mitchell Santner is the new man in and he will be on strike. 3 needed in 3, can he keep his calm and take his side over the line?
19.3
W
Shardul Thakur To Daryl Mitchell OUT!
OUT! Seifert is short! 3 in 3 needed and a new batter will be on strike. A slower bumper outside off. Mitchell is foxed by the lack of pace. He tries to pull but misses. It goes towards the keeper. The batters look to steal a bye but Rahul hits bull's eye at his end. An appeal and the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays roll in and it shows TS is just short.
Big moment in the game! Is Seifert short? Well India are celebrating, the umpire has taken it upstairs.

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.
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.

FOUR! Right in the gap! A huge over, 17 from it. Probably the over which turns the game into New Zealand's favor completely. This is floated up outside off, Taylor slog sweeps. It goes in the gap in the mid-wicket region and a boundary. This could have easily been an over which could have had a wicket but instead it goes for a plenty.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Tim Seifert
DROPPED AGAIN! Bumrah is the culprit this time! Seifert looks to play the reverse sweep. He does not time it well. It goes uppishly towards short third man where Bumrah dives forward and tries to take it but fails to do so. You can't win matches if you keep dropping such catches.

Yuzvendra Chahal To Tim Seifert
DROPPED AND SIX! Has Saini dropped the game? That had to be taken, it was a chance to get Seifert out, the well-set man but the youngster fails to hang on. It is floated up outside off, TS drags it towards wide long on. Saini there runs to his right. He is a little too close to the ropes. He does get two hands to it but maybe panicked and it spills out and over the ropes.

Shivam Dube To Tim Seifert
SIX! Just over! Whatever pressure that was building has been released by this hit. Dube fails to end the over nicely. A short one on the body, Seifert looks to pull but due to the extra bounce Dube gets, a top edge is induced. It goes between long on and deep mid-wicket. Not sure if it has gone all the way. The umpire takes it upstairs and replays show that it has hit the cushion on the full. 53 needed in 6 overs.

OUT! Bowled! Chahal comes back and gets rid of Bruce! He cannot leave a lasting impression and goes without troubling the scorers. Floated on leg stump, Bruce looks to paddle. This shot looks easy to play and cheeky when it comes off but when it does not, it does not look pretty. On this occasion, it has not come off. Bruce has missed it completely and the ball goes onto disturb the pole. Once again New Zealand are making a meal of this chase and are losing the plot.
Chahal is back.

Shivam Dube To Colin Munro OUT!
OUT! You bet he has! Munro is short! India needed something inspirational, their body language had gone down as this stand was taking the game away but Kohli has just provided something brilliant. He leads from the front and this could well be the opening India wanted. It is a full ball outside off, Munro hits it through covers. The batters take one and go for the second. Thakur picks the ball up and fires it towards Kohli at covers. He catches it, turns and then fires it at the stumps at the keeper's end and hits. Munro is walking back disappointed but the umpire takes it upstairs. Replays show that Munro is well short. Replays actually show that Munro did not expect the throw to come at his end and he was jogging towards the other end. When he saw Kohli turn, that is when he upped the speed but it was too late. A good innings from Munro comes to an end but he needed to stay longer.
A run out appeal and it has been taken upstairs! Munro is already walking back! Has the Indian skipper pulled off something exceptional?

Washington Sundar To Colin Munro
FOUR! Brings up the 50-run stand and his personal fifty in style. He struggled in the start but he has found his groove. Tossed up on middle, Munro smashes it over the bowler's head and gets a boundary as the ball bounces inside the ropes. The run chase has found its way back but the job is not done and the southpaw should bat and see his side home.

Two dots to end but a good over for the Kiwis! However, the visitors will be happy with how things have gone in the Powerplay. New Zealand are 39 for 1. They need another 127 in 14 overs. The last ball is slightly short and outside off, Seifert looks to cut but gets an underedge towards the off side.

Jasprit Bumrah To Martin Guptill OUT!
OUT! Caught! Bumrah strikes and the dangerous Martin Guptill is out of here. Credit has to be given to the Indian bowlers, they have hardly given away any free runs and the pressure they have built has turned into a wicket. Bumrah bangs it in short on off, Guptill looks to pull it and release some pressure he cannot time it at all. Ends up getting a top edge which flies to the left of the keeper. Rahul, with the gloves calls for the catch. He initially moves behind to his left and then comes forward to take the catch.
