England beat New Zealand in 5th T20I in Super Over

Auckland, Nov 10 (SocialNews.XYZ) England on Sunday won the the 5th T20I against New Zealand in Super Over in what turned out to be a thriller of a decider in Auckland to clinch the five-match series 3-2.

New Zealand opted to bat first in the match which was reduced 11 overs a side due to rain. Openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro helped the host race to 83/0 in just over five overs before the former was dismissed for 50 off 20 balls. New Zealand eventually ended up posting an imposing total of 146/5.

However, England managed to match that largely thanks to the efforts of Jonny Bairstow, Eoin Morgan and Sam Curran. While it looked like New Zealand had managed to reign in the visitors with Mitchel Santner taking two wickets in the eighth over, Tom Curran, Sam Billings and Chris Jordan somehow pulled England level with Jordan hitting a four off the last ball to tie the game.


Morgan and Bairstow came out to bat for England in the Super Over and scored 17 runs off Tim Southee's bowling. Jordan then bowled the Super Over for England with Guptill and Tim Seifert in the middle.

New Zealand could manage just eight runs in the over after losing the wicket of Seifert.

Brief scores: New Zealand 146/5 in 11 overs (Martin Guptill 50, Colin Munro 46; Saqib Mahmood 1/20) vs England 146/7 (Jonny Bairstow 47, Sam Curran 24; Mitchell Santner 2/20)
