India beat New Zealand by seven runs in the fifth T20I at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui to become the first team to win a bilateral T20I series with a 5-0 margin. Jasprit Bumrah roared back to form with India defending 164, picking up three wickets for just 12 runs. Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur picked up two wickets each as New Zealand fell short of target. After losing opener Sanju Samson early, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma put on an 88-run stand but after Rahul's dismissal and Rohit's calf injury, India lost momentum and finished with 163 when at one point, a total of 180 or more looked within reach. India started brilliantly, with New Zealand reduced to 17/3. But Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor went on to put up a 99-run stand and almost took the game away from India. But then Saini struck to remove Seifert, and then New Zealand suffered a mini-collapse, going from 116/4 to 133/8. Ish Sodhi hit a couple of maximums off the final over to give India a scare, but the visitors held on to their nerves and secured the 5-0 series clean sweep. (SCORECARD)

  • 15:11 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    The over that changes things?

    The match looked like it was slipping away from New Zealand, but after that over it looks like they may just take it to another Super Over...

    Dube to Taylor, SIX

  • 15:08 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Dube to Taylor, FOUR!

    Dube bowls it full on Taylor's pads and he flicks it off his toes. Sundar slips at the boundary and it goes for a boundary. Dube had overstepped so free hit coming up as well.
  • 15:06 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Dube to Seifert, FOUR

    Seifert got across and tried to scoop it behind. He missed his shot and nearly edged the ball on to the stumps, but it runs away for a boundary instead. Lucky!

    Dube to Seifert, SIX

    Goes square on the leg side this time and it just flies over the fielder's outstretched arms for a second six in two balls

    Dube to Seifert, SIX

    Steps out of the crease and slams this over long-on
  • 15:04 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Shivam Dube into the attack

    Can he do better with the ball than the bat?
  • 15:02 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Chahal to Seifert, FOUR

    Gets down on one knee and slog sweeps it very square for a boundary

    Another run-out chance

    Big shout for another run out, but Seifert made the crease with a dive
  • 15:00 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Brilliant fielding by Sanju Samson!

    Taylor hit another one high over mid-wicket and it looked like it was gone for a maximum, but Sanju Samson dived over the rope, caught the ball and threw the ball back into the field while still mid-air! Sensational fielding to save four runs there!
  • 14:58 (IST)Feb 02, 2020

    Thakur to Taylor, FOUR
