Yet again New Zealand and India involved in a thriller, as the 4th T20I at Wellington ended up giving another super over for the fans. This time, it was KL Rahul and Virat Kohli, who finished things off in a style after Shardul Thakur’s impressive show with the ball in the final over.

Chasing 165 on the board, New Zealand lost Martin Guptill pretty early in the innings but Colin Munro and Tim Seifert took the onus on their shoulders to balance the chase for New Zealand. Just when things looked pretty ordinary for India, Virat Kohli sent Colin Munro back with a brilliant direct hit.

The swashbuckling southpaw went back with 64 runs to his name. He was quickly followed by Tom Bruce but Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor hold the fort but once again India managed to draw the game. Shardul Thakur defended 7 runs in the final over to push it to super over.

Earlier in the day, New Zealand have won the toss and asked the visitors to bat first. Justifying the decision of the skipper, New Zealand picked two wickets in the powerplay in the form of Virat Kohli and Sanju Samson. Then came the magical effort from Ish Sodhi, who picked three wickets to put New Zealand on top of the game.

However, Manish Pandey, who remained unbeaten in the series so far, rotated strike in the middle with the support of Shardul Thakur to move the scoreboard inch by inch. Santner, who collected man of the match for his bowling performance at this venue before, looked brilliant in the field by registering three catches to his name.

In the end, India finished with a decent score of 165 on the board with Manish Pandey being unbeaten on 50 while Navdeep Saini added a crucial 11 in 9 balls.
