India took on New Zealand in the third T20I of the five-match series on Wednesday. The contest brought more super over heartbreak for New Zealand. Kane Williamson’s heroics went in vain as Rohit Sharma hit consecutive sixes to seal the match in India’s favour. The victory meant that India took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the NZ vs Ind T20I series.

New Zealand won the toss at Seddon Park and elected to field. Rohit Sharma came all guns blazing and scored a magnificent 65. It included a mind-blogging 26-run over off Hamish Bennett. Bennett had the last laugh though, bagging Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Shivam Dube to restrict India to 179/5 in their 20 overs. New Zealand, chasing 180 to stay alive in the series, lost both their openers - Martin Guptill and Colin Munro - cheaply. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson took charge and almost guided his team to the finish line.

Rohit Sharma turned on his class, depositing back-to-back sixes to win India the match. The Twitterati were appreciative of Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami's efforts. They also lauded Kane Williamson's brilliant innings.
