India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I Highlights: India win Super Over, clinch maiden T20I series in New Zealand | Cricket News
INDIA BEAT NEW ZEALAND IN SUPER OVER, WIN SERIES
Virat Kohli, INDIA captain:
I thought we were gone at one stage. I told our coach that they deserved to win. On the last ball, we had a discussion and we came to a conclussion that we had to hit the stumps. Rohit was superb for us. When Shami bowled those two dot balls, I thought we can go to super over. In the super over, Kane came out and smashed Bumrah who is one of best death over bowler in World Cricket. There are a couple of guys who are sitting out like Sundar and Saini, they deserve to get a game.
Kane Williamson, NEW ZEALAND captain:
Super overs haven’t been too successfull for us. India showed their experience in the crunch situation. We bowled well after they got off to a superb start. Very disappointing. It was nice to spend some time in the middle. It was disappointing not to cross the finishing lines. It is a game of small margins. It was a much better performance from us.
Rohit Sharma -Man of the Match:
Never done that before (batting in Super Over). I didn’t know what to expect, whether to go from the first ball or wait for a while. I just wanted to stay still and then try my best (on the last two sixes). Good performance with the bat, disappointed at having thrown my wicket away though. I hadn’t got runs in the first two games, wanted to do well today. We knew we would win the series today if we win the match – in important games, the main players need to step up.

Virat Kohli (INDIA)
I reckon (we would have bowled). Looks like a nice track, it’s pretty hard, nice grass cover, the weather might have a say in the second innings, but toss isn’t in our control. Just put a clinical performance, carry forward the momentum and grab the chances that comes. Don’t worry about too many changes, just go out there and do the job. No changes once again, the boys did a good job with both bat and ball, no need to make any changes at all.
Kane Williamson (NEW ZEALAND)
We will bowl first. A new surface, hopefully, we will get something from it. Need to follow our plans, we are playing a strong side, a new ground, a new surface, do the job with the ball. One change, Scott Kuggeleijn is in, for Blair Tickner. Both offer pretty much the same, both bowl heavy balls, perhaps, Scott is a bit better batsman.
A toss win for Kane Williamson and we will bowl at Seddon Park in T20I 3. #NZvIND https://t.co/1UzfnUWD1Z

It’s TOSS time, folks.
A third successive win at Seddon Park will give India their
first ever T20I series win on New Zealand soil, a feat they were unable to achieve on two occasions previously.
India lost 0-2 under Mahendra Singh Dhoni back in 2008-09, and last year, they went down 1-2.
Hello and welcome to the Live coverage of 3rd T20I between India and New Zealand at Seddon Park in Hamilton.
