Virat Kohli and his troops took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match T20I series in the wake of a super over win against New Zealand in Hamilton. Though India were not really in the game in the final over, they somehow, managed to drag the game till the super over and turned the tables in their favour.

Mohammed Shami also deserves credit for keeping Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor in check. In the final over of the game, New Zealand required two runs off the last four balls to finish off the game with two set batsmen at the crease.

However, Shami dismissed both the stalwarts and gave away just one run and thus the game was dragged to the super over. Thanks to Rohit Sharma for his incredible batting skills, especially in the last two balls of the super over.

When India required 10 runs to win the game, Rohit hit two sixes off Tim Southee’s over and single-handedly won the game for India.

Rightly so, he was named the Player of the Match for his candid knock. This was also India’s first-ever T20I series victory in New Zealand.

So far so good for India. Now, the riveting action shifts to the fourth T20I match will be played at Wellington Regional Stadium on January 31 (Friday).

After the third match, Indian captain Virat Kohli said that they are aiming to win the next two games to complete a 5-0 clean sweep over New Zealand.

On the other end of the spectrum, New Zealand who still boasts about a better record in the shorter format against India will be looking for nothing more than a consolation victory at home soil.
