Not India's night as New Zealand take the four-run win in third T20I as well as the series. Good result for Kane Williamson and Co as they bounce back handsomely after the 1-4 humbling in the ODI series but a great Down Under tour overall for India. Started off with a T20I series against Australia that ended in a tie followed by a historic 2-1 series win in Tests — first for India in Australia and then 2-1 ODI series win against the Aussies. India will be quiet happy with their performances. Time to take some rest, charge up and be back as they prepare for the 2019 World Cup.

We will see you again during the Australia tour of India which starts with two T20Is from 24 February and it will followed by five ODIs. Till then, take care and goodbye! 

16:09 (IST)

Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain: Brilliant series. Incredible advert for T20 cricket.  It's great to get across the line tonight. Credit to India they have been outstanding throughout the whole series. I think it was a short series, with the first game being our best performance and some learnings in the second as we expected India to come hard. Both teams put in strong performances tonight, we did slightly better. Not really (on post-win celebrations) We travel-train-play and straight into the next series against Bangladesh, that's the nature and schedule of international cricket but the guys are looking forward to it

16:08 (IST)

Rohit Sharma: It's disappointing to not cross the finishing line. 210-odd was always going to be tough, and we were in the game right till the end, but New Zealand held their nerve well and they deserved to win. We started off well in the ODIs, and the boys will be disappointed not getting to the finishing line in the T20s. Lots of positives, and a few mistakes, so there's a lot of material to move ahead.

16:07 (IST)

Seifert: Great to have a performance like that, but it's great to get a vicotry in the end, particularly a last-minute one like that. Enjoyed batting with Colin Munro at the top. It's awesome in my hometown, that the crowd have come out in full support - hopefully they do so for the SuperSmash final as well.

16:05 (IST)

Colin Munro, MoM: Everyone did a really good job of finishing off against the good Indian batting line-up. Didn't really focus on trying to do anything different, tried to put pressure back on the bowlers. Just came out nice and free, had a bit of luck, which you certainly need in this match.

16:05 (IST)

Tim Seifert is the Player of the Series

16:04 (IST)

Colin Munro is the Man of the Match

16:02 (IST)

Will be a big point of discussion

16:01 (IST)

Two close finishes, both not ending in India's favour

15:58 (IST)

Finishes it off with a six DK... but those two dots changed things. India's unbeaten tour is broken. They finally lose a series, but won't be too disheartened with this effort. Lots of tickmarks for them. New Zealand, well, they will be happy to show they can complete at home and putting 200 on the board twice in three matches should inspire confidence ahead of the World Cup. 

It's been a long tour and now it is time to sign off. See you on the road some time as we are counting down to the 2019 World Cup!!

India vs New Zealand (IND vs NZ), 3rd T20I Live Score:New Zealand clinch the series with a four-run win in the third T20I at Hamilton.

3rd T20I, Preview: In a season of many firsts for the Indian cricket team, Rohit Sharma's men will be aiming to become first among the equals to win a T20 International series in New Zealand when the two sides clash in the final match here Sunday.

The past three months have made for a memorable phase for the Indian cricket team, which won its first Test and bilateral ODI series in Australia followed by the biggest one-day series win in New Zealand.

A first T20 series victory in New Zealand will be the icing on the cake for the 'Men in Blue', who have far exceeded expectations during their three-month sojourn in this part of the world.

With the series locked at 1-1, there is everything to play for in the decider which promises to be a cracker of a contest on a 'Super Sunday' with a spicy Seddon Park pitch in the offing.

India will do well to remember the nightmare that they endured during the fourth ODI at this venue where they were shot out for 92 in the wake of some quality swing bowling from Trent Boult.

However, Sunday will be a different day and there can't be a bigger motivation than winning yet another series in challenging overseas conditions.

"We have played in Hamilton and there won't be any surprise element as far as the pitch is concerned. Also having won the second game gives us confidence going into the final match," left-arm speedster Khaleel Ahmed had said after series levelling second T20I, when asked about the Hamilton game.

"We have rectified some of our mistakes from the first game and hopefully a few which are there will also be corrected," Khaleel added.

India played the same XI in the first two games and in all likelihood, will maintain continuity unless there are some niggles.

In case the team management gives change a thought, it could be a like for like replacement with Kuldeep Yadav coming in place of Yuzvendra Chahal as the wrist spinner.

However, a look at India's T20 playing XIs will indicate that Chahal has been their preferred shortest format bowler on most occasions.

The Indian bowling unit will look to replicate their good show from the last match where they found their rhythm after a pasting in the opener from Tim Seifert.

Krunal Pandya has once again punched above his weight with some gritty performances in the two games.

Not considered the most talented player in the set-up, Krunal makes up his with hard work and discipline. His accuracy is one of the biggest positives going into Sunday's match along with the intelligence of senior seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

Khaleel also stuck to his brief in the last game where skipper Rohit Sharma had instructed him to bowl back of the length to avoid being hit for boundaries. There will be a similar plan in place on Sunday also.

The stand-in captain, who is now the world's top run-getter in T20 Internationals, will like to better the 29-ball-50 of the previous match, which can well spell doom for the Black Caps.

With Shikhar Dhawan for company, a good opening will solve half the problems for the visitors as it has been the case during the last four years.

The middle-order has also shown solidity with the experience of Mahendra Singh Dhoni and the exuberance of Rishabh Pant combining well as was evident in Auckland.

For New Zealand, a better batting effort in the middle overs is what they would be looking for.

Skipper Kane Williamson has endured a quiet limited overs series by his standards and senior batsman Ross Taylor has also blown hot and cold during the last three weeks.

Among bowlers, Tim Southee was impressive in the first game and pretty ordinary in the second along with Scott Kuggeleijn, who also went for a fair amount of runs.

Squads:

India: Rohit Sharma(c), Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, Dinesh Karthik, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Siddarth Kaul, Khaleel Ahmed, Shubman Gill, Vijay Shankar, Hardik Pandya, Mohammad Siraj.

New Zealand: Kane Williamson(c), Doug Bracewell, Colin de Grandhomme, Lockie Ferguson, Scott Kuggeleijn, Colin Munro, Daryl Mitchell, Mitchell Santner, Tim Seifert, Ish Sodhi, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Blair Tickner, James Neesham.

Match Starts at 12:30 pm.

India vs Australia, Highlights, 4th Test at Brisbane, Day 2, Full Cricket Score: Play abandoned due to wet outfield as visitors trail by 307 runs

So the whole last session has been lost and the officials have decided to make up for it by resuming the game half an earlier tomorrow. Day 2 honours should go to India. With an inexperienced bowling attack, they restricted Australian first innings to 369 after the hosts resumed innings today at 274/5. Rohit batted well for his 44 before his attacking style of play led to his fall, yet again. Pujara and Rahane have looked assured in the middle and India, trailing by 307, need them to carry on for long.The coverage starts tomorrow at 4 am and remember the game resumes at 5 am and not 5.30 am IST. Take care and good-bye.

That brings us to the end of our coverage of the third day of the decisive third Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with Australia clearly on top and favourites to go 2-1 up with a lead just shy of the 200-mark. India will need to bowl and bat out of their skins if they are to think of keeping their chances in this match alive. Can they make the Sunday a special one for fans back home in India?
