England seal series in SUPER OVER

Video Highlights

Yes, it happened again...

England has beaten the BLACKCAPS in another Super Over, this time at Eden Park to secure the GJ Gardner Homes T20l series.

The sides were forced into the tie-breaker after Chris Jordan swiped the final regulation ball for four to tie the sides on 146-runs-apiece after a rain-shortened 11-over contest.

Captain Tim Southee stepped up to bowl the nerve-jangling over which was taken for 17 by England captain Eoin Morgan and Player of the Match Jonny Bairstow.

Tim Seifert struck an early boundary to give the vocal home crowd hope, but his wicket and some precise yorkers from Jordan saw the visitors prevail.

Earlier Martin Guptill smashed a 19-ball half-century, Colin Munro belted 46 off 21 balls and Seifert swatted five sixes as the BLACKCAPS posted 146-5 from their 11 overs.

England's reply hit early trouble at 2-9, but Bairstow's 47 off 18 and Jordan's late six-two-four combo forced the match into overtime.

And the rest, as they say, is history .... bugger!
