Sky News:– England have again beat New Zealand after a Super Over, following a barely believable conclusion to a rain-reduced T20I series decider in Auckland.

Eoin Morgan’s men edged the Black Caps in a Super Over in the World Cup final at Lord’s in July, and followed suit at Eden Park on Sunday – albeit not on boundary countback – to take the series 3-2 after the sides had scored 146 runs apiece in a truncated 11-over-a-side game.

Morgan and Jonny Bairstow tonked one six each off Tim Southee in England’s Super Over as the tourists totalled 17-0, before Chris Jordan – whose 12 runs from the final three balls had taken the match to a Super Over in the first place – conceded only eight runs in New Zealand’s and dismissed Tim Seifert thanks to a superb tumbling catch from Morgan. 

New Zealand were far more brutal once a shortened game finally got under way at 4pm local time, with Martin Guptill slamming a 19-ball fifty as the Black Caps cracked 83 from their first five overs after being inserted.

Adil Rashid – back into the side at the expense of Matt Parkinson – had Guptill caught by Tom Banton at deep midwicket, while the also-restored Saqib Mahmood dismissed Colin de Grandhomme (6) in similar fashion.
