In the super over hitman Rohit hit an intelligent undefeated score 15 runs including two sixes. New Zealand Score of 17 chased by India with 20 runs. At Seddon, Park India win the third T20I with 3-0 lead in the five-match T20I series.
Kane Williamson, New Zealand captain scored an excellent 95 runs with an unbeaten 11 runs scored in the Super Over. But those runs are not sufficient as Rohit Sharma(15) and KL Rahul(5) took Tim Southee as a bowler.
After the game was tied the Indian Bowler Mohammed Shami came up with a classic strategy for the last over. He removed Williamson for 95 runs. At that time New Zealand needed 2 runs off 2 balls to win. But Shami played brilliantly.
