Rohit Sharma smashed consecutive sixes in the final two balls of the Super Over, leading India to their maiden T20 series win in New Zealand following a narrow finish in the third match in Hamilton. India had managed just 10 off the first four balls in the Super Over but needed 18 off six balls. Then, Sharma managed two big hits, one over mid-wicket and the other over long off, to help India to victory.
