We are heading to a Super Over, folks! Unreal scenes at Eden Park! Ish Sodhi is pumped and so are the New Zealand fans. On the other hand, Sri Lanka are dejected but now need to focus on what's ahead for them.
SIX! UP UP UP AND OVER THE FENCE FOR A MAXIMUM! We have a super over on the cards here. Over-pitched delivery in middle, Ish Sodhi times this to perfection right from the meat of his bat way over the head of deep mid-wicket fielder for a maximum. Super over follows.
Full and quick on off, Henry Shipley drills this to long on and takes a single. 7 needed of the last delivery.
Bye. Wide yorker, Ish Sodhi fails to get any bat on this but they run a single as the keeper throws this back to the bowler. 8 needed of the last 2 deliveries.

Ish Sodhi is the new man in.
OUT! TAKEN! The game shifts in favor of the visitors again as Rachin Ravindra departs. Full and wide of off, Rachin Ravindra smashes this hard and uppish towards Wanindu Hasaranga at wide long off. Wanindu Hasaranga makes no mistake and takes a crucial catch.
Henry Shipley walks out to bat but it will be Rachin Ravindra on strike at the start of the final over. Dasun Shanaka will bowl the final over. Can he defend 12 runs?
OUT! TAKEN IN THE DEEP! Fuller one outside off, Adam Milne looks to go big but loses his body shape and top edges this towards third man. Charith Asalanka takes a good catch in the deep to dismiss Adam Milne.
Low full toss on off, Rachin Ravindra pushes this to long on for a single.
FOUR! Error in judgment from Wanindu Hasaranga at mid off costs his team a boundary here. Fuller one on off, Rachin Ravindra drills this powerfully to mid off and Wanindu Hasaranga misreads this and watches the ball fly towards the fence for four.
Fuller one on middle, Adam Milne looks to slog but gets an inside edge towards short fine leg for a single.
Wide! Short-pitched delivery is way too high for the umpire's liking. Wide signaled as Adam Milne leaves this.

FOUR! This is massive in the context of this game. Back of a length around middle, Rachin Ravindra clears his front foot and slogs this one bounce over the fence at the cow corner region for a boundary.
