India beat New Zealand in Super Over in third T20I to clinch series

After clinching back-to-back victories against New Zealand, the Virat Kohli-led India will look to continue their winning momentum and clinch the five-match T20I series when they take on the Black Caps in the third match at the Seddon Park in Hamilton on Wednesday.

On Sunday, the Indian bowlers restricted New Zealand to 132 /5 before opener KL Rahul (57) and Shreyas Iyer (44) shone with the bat to help India chase down the target with 15 balls to spare and seal a seven-wicket in the second T20I.

The win saw India go 2-0 up in the five-match series. The Men in Blue won the opening T20I by six wickets at Eden Gardens in Auckland.

The visitors will now look to continue their momentum and clinch the series with two games to spare.

New Zealand, on the other hand, will look to shrug off their two defeats and come up with a much-improved performance in all the three departments of the game in the third T20I in order to stay alive in the series.
