It was another match, another super-over and another defeat for the New Zealanders on Friday, as Team India showed their brilliance once again and took the match with a blow and are now leading the series by 4-0.

New Zealand cricket team just needed 7 runs in the final over with seven wickets in hand and still, they failed to get over the line. The New Zealand batsmen failed miserably, while Shardul Thakur outsmarted them with his mesmerizing spell.

After successfully chasing the target of 165 runs, New Zealand amassed 13 runs off Jasprit Bumrah’s super-over.  Later, Tim Southee once again took it upon him to defend the total but the cricketer failed to defend the total as India’s KL Rahul smashed him all around the ground. After KL Rahul’s dismiss, Virat Kohli took India to the victory sides.
