A nervous New Zealand threw it away yet again as a perseverant India prevailed in the Super Over for the second successive time to take a 4-0 lead in the T20 International series on Friday. Needing just 11 runs off the last two overs with seven wickets in hand, New Zealand dug a hole for themselves yet again, taking the game to a Super Over two nights after doing the same in Hamilton.
New Zealand managed 13 runs in six balls and India got there effortlessly. 'What's happened in last two T20 games is unbelievable...We are very proud of how we went about our business today,' said India captain Virat Kohli, who struck the winning four in the game. KL Rahul smashed 10 runs off the first two balls before he was caught. Then, a fired-up Kohli and Sanju Samson finished the game in style.'It is very tough. To get ourselves into the position we got today and then give them a chance... India grabbed it with both hands,' said New Zealand stand-in skipper Tim Southee, who delivered the Super Over for his side. This was after New Zealand won a fourth consecutive toss and opted to field.
