Well what a thrilling finish! West Indies will have feel they could have won the game with Gayle starting off so strong but New Zealand will also feel that they were ahead in the last few overs.

We will now have one super over for each team. 3 batsmen and one bowler are chosen for each team who are bowl one over each on the same pitch with the same ball. West Indies batted second so they will have the first super over. If two wickets fall then the team is out and no more balls will be bowled.
