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.
