Phew! Another day, another Super Over defeat for the Kiwis. Once again they shouldn't have found themselves in that position, but they botched their chase up while India never stopped believeing. With that result, India now 4-0 up in the five-match series. The last game will be at the beautiful Mount in Tauranga. So, we look forward for your company on Sunday, where India will target a clean sweep.

Virat Kohli, India skipper: There's something new I've learnt in the last couple of games which is to stay calm, wait for the opportunity and capitalise on it. Last two games have been unbelievable. We had never played a Super Over before, and now we have played two back-to-back. Shows the character of the team. KL and me had a chat, and he said I should walk in with him because of my experince. His two shots early on were crucial. It was exciting for me. (On youngsters) Pretty good. I thought Sanju was fearless. We didn't quite read the pitch that well. We thought this was his chance. He should back himself. All in all, all of them looked in good headspace. If the opposition plays that well, there's no harm in saying they played well.

16:56 (IST)

Tim Southee, NZ captain: Yes, really tough, especially after the position we were in. If you give India any chance they will grab it with both hands. [On him bowling second Super Over in two games] When you got a young bowling attack, it's tough when you haven't won and you play against a quality opposition in India, give them a sniff and make it tough for yourselves.

16:52 (IST)

"Feeling good. Two games in a row. Couldn't ask for more. After the last game, we all learnt we shouldn't lose hope. First ball wicket was crucial. If I got a wicket, pressure's on them. Good contribution from me. It was important to stretch the partnership in the middle. Should've carried my bat into the 19th or the 20th over," says Shardul Thakur, who has been adjudged the Player of the Match for his all-round effort!

Turn away New Zealand fans

16:43 (IST)

Virat Kohli does in in style, slapping a back-of-length delivery from Southee towards the vacant midwicket fence as India snatch another victory from the jaws of defeat to go 4-0 up in the series. Tim Southee's will probably be having nightmares about the two lost Super Overs for a month now. New Zealand's luck just remains rotten. Tough being a Black Caps fan.

India vs New Zealand 4th T20I Live Updates: Virat Kohli does in in style, slapping a back-of-length delivery from Southee towards the vacant midwicket fence as India snatch another victory from the jaws of defeat to go 4-0 up in the series. Tim Southee's will probably be having nightmares about the two lost Super Overs for a month now. New Zealand's luck just remains rotten. Tough being a Black Caps fan.

Preview: New Zealand will hope to end their losing run against India in the fourth T20I in Wellington, with only pride left to play for after surrendering the series with an unassailable 3-0 lead.

The Black Caps failed to defend a challenging score of 203/5 in the first T20I at Auckland's Eden Park, and were outplayed in the second game of the series that took place at the same venue on the Indian Republic Day, posting just 132 in 20 overs that was easily overhauled by the visitors.

The Kiwis however, fought back admirably in the third T20I in Hamilton, with Kane Williamson's 48-ball 95 nearly guiding the side home in their chase of the 180-run target. However, the last-minute brain-fade saw the match ending in a tie from a position where the home team needed two to win from four balls with six wickets in hand.

New Zealand's hoodoo as far as Super Overs are concerned continued as Rohit Sharma smacked back-to-back sixes off Tim Southee to help his team seal the series with a memorable win.

Williamson will be hoping to rally the troops and raise their morale after the heartbreaking defeat at Hamilton's Seddon Park, and try and pull things back in the remaining games. His Indian counterpart Virat Kohli, on the other hand, signalled the need to give the bench a try in the last two games and fine-tune their combinations with the ICC T20 World Cup in mind.

Kohli, however, maintained the experimentation, in no way, will interfere in their quest to complete a 5-0 hammering of the Kiwis after having already clinched their first T20I series win in New Zealand.
