Super Over ensures Black Caps loss against India

From Morning Report, 7:46 am on 30 January 2020

The dreaded Super Over strikes again. The World Cup wasn't at stake this time for the Black Caps, but the loss did hand India the T20 series.

Kane Williamson almost got his side home in regulation overs in the third T20 international in Hamilton scoring 95, however the two sides finished tied on 179.

Chasing 18 in the extra over, Indian star Rohit Sharma belted the last two balls for six to give the tourists victory and a 3-nil lead in the 5 game series.

After the match, Williamson was asked whether the team was getting used to losing at the last moment.
