Hopefully by now you must have caught your breath back!

Manic end to what was a fantastic game of cricket. India have the series in the bag, now time for them try their bench strength and probably aim for a clean sweep. For New Zealand, they have still a lot of areas to fix ahead of the all-important World Cup, the Kiwis will have two more games to find answers in this series.

We will see you in a couple day's time. For now, see ya!

Virat Kohli: Unbelievable. At one stage, I thought we were gone and out. He was brilliant. Feel bad for him, these kind of knocks when they don't go through. Shami again showed his experience. Last ball we had a discussion we have to try and hit the stumps. He got the wicket, and the game turned. I think Rohit was outstanding today, the first half and the last two balls. We knew if he gets one hit, the bowler's under pressure. I thought we were gone at one stage. But in the Super Over, the discussion was around, "New Zealand must be feeling the pressure." It was such a see-saw game, we didn't really know what to do of it. We'll try to definitely, but it's important to give some game time to the guys who haven't got a chance so far. We'll see how that works, but the idea is to win the remaining games.

Kane Williamson, NZ captain: Super overs haven't been too successfull for us. We probably need to better in regular time. Great game of cricket. India showed experience in those crunch moments. We bowled well after they got off to a superb start. Pretty disappointing. We must take a lot of from this.You still want to be on the right side of the result. Game of small margins. Throughout these three matches you have seen India stand up during those crunch moments. Eden Park wasn't so bad. We spoke of getting those 10-15 runs more.

16:34 (IST)

Rohit Sharma is the Player of the Match for his 65 and his Super Over heroics!

Rohit Sharma: Never done that before, so I didnt know what to expect, whether to go from the first ball or to take a single. I just wanted to stay still and was waiting for the bowlers to make a mistake. The pitch was good, and I was just waiting for a mistake. Little disappointed with the way I got out, should've stayed back a little longer. We knew if we won this game, we'll will the series, so it was important for three-four members of our squad to step up when it mattered.

India vs New Zealand 3rd T20I Live Updates: SIX! India win the Super Over! Rohhhiiitt Sharrrmmaaa has done it! Full ball outside off and Rohit Sharma has send this high and long enough over long off boundary for another six! Feel for NZ, who lose their third Super Over in less than a year's time. Another nerve wracking game of cricket. Great nerves from Rohit to pummel couple of sixes off the final two balls. India take an 3-0 unassailable lead in the five-match series

Preview: India will be looking to seal the T20I series when they take on New Zealand in the 3rd T20I at Hamilton.

The Kiwis have been thoroughly outclassed at home in the first two T20Is and the pressure will be on them to deliver the goods.

While India's sharp and smart bowling restricted the Kiwis to 132/5 in the second T20I, it was a spectacular effort from their bowlers to restrict them to a below-par total on a small ground like Eden Park which has been a graveyard for the bowlers. The Kiwis got off to a good start but their middle order faltered as they couldn't adapt to the variations and pace changes of the Indian pacers and spinners. The Kiwis will somehow need to crack the Jasprit Bumrah code and put in a solid batting effort in Hamilton.

It's not just the batting, their bowling has disappointed as well. In the first match, they couldn't defend 203 and in the next match, India chased down the target with 2.3 overs and seven wickets to spare. While Southee has led from the front, the likes of Blair Tickner and Hamish Bennett need to step up.

India have looked authoritative especially with the bat and they would hope that Rohit Sharma strikes form after two blips.

If India manage to win the Hamilton T20I, it will be their first-ever series win over the Kiwis. And at this rate, it looks like they will achieve the feat in this match itself.
