7.05pm Well, so ends another brilliant contest between these two sides, curtailed though it was, it did not fall short on entertainment. How can anyone not love this game?

Alan has made sense of it all in his report here. Thank you for joining us and we look forward to the next one with the Test series starting on November 20. For now, it's goodbye from me, and him.

6.45pm Man of the Match Jonny Bairstow told Sky Sports: "I don't feel like I've potentially scored as many as I wanted during the series to so contribute in a shortened game, obviously the pitch here is quite favourable for the batters, so to get some runs was pleasing. It was pretty imposing to try and chase down 150 but a lot of the guys played in the T10 last year and said, 'look, we're not far off here if we can within striking distance with the small boundaries, we've got a chance'."

[On the Super Over]: "We don't want to keep this happening, I don't think. I don't think anyone wants to keep that going but it just shows how close the sides are and how close it's been throughout the series and it sets up what's going to be a fantastic Test series as well."

Tim Southee: "The shorter the game the harder the side can go. They just kept coming hard and it would have been nice to have one more run there somewhere but it wasn't to be. It was a good series, sort of ebbed and flowed throughout, but at the end of the day it was good cricket and finished off with some good entertainment here."

Eoin Morgan was, understandably, delighted. "Surprised we got any sort of a game in today with the weather that was around but it's always nice to play here. We chopped and changed a little bit and the guys coming in did a really good job. The Black Caps played well again, bowled really well and there was nothing between the sides for the 11-over game. And then, the Super Over, I thought the standout was Chris Jordan, a guy who's extremely calm under pressure and delivers."

6.35pm Well, how's your hearts cricket fans? Not quite the same stakes as in July, but what a way to end the match, and the series, after a rain-delayed start. "The crowd who hung around in the rain got their money's worth," says Tim Southee. That they did.

"I'm as surprised as anyone at catching it," says a modest Eoin Morgan of taking that crucial, and spectacular, grab in the Super Over that all but ended New Zealand hopes.

Well well well, another heartstopper from these two teams. In the end, New Zealand will be asking themselves if they were right in having Seifert face the first ball of the Super Over. He got struck on the strike, faced four balls, and despite the wide, could get just the seven runs

0.6
Jordan to Grandhomme, no run

Sorry it is de Grandhomme and not Munro. The wrong Colin. England have this wrapped if they don't bowl an extra. This is full and outside off, drilled to cover. No need to run. England win another close contest against New Zealand. That's the match and the series

0.5
1
Jordan to Guptill, 1 run

Good fielding change for Guptill on strike. The mid-off goes back. Jordan goes full, near yorker, Guptill doesn't get under it, and gets just the single to long-off

Munro new batsman but Guptill is on strike. This is the ball

0.4
W
Jordan to Seifert, OUT

What a screamer from Morgan running back. Sensational. Not a great ball. On a length, on off, with mid-off and cover up. Seifert might have thought six, but he ends up slicing this. Yet it seems for a long time that it will clear Morgan and bring them two runs, but Morgan puts in the chase, keeping an eye on the ball over his shoulder, gets parallel to the ball and then puts in the lung eat the last moment. Top class

Tim Seifert c Morgan b Jordan 0 (4b 1x4 0x6)
0.3
Jordan to Seifert, no run

shapes up for the ramp early, Jordan goes for a wide yorker, and nails it wide of Seifert's reach. Interesting shot with fine leg back. Doesn't connect anyway

0.2
4
Jordan to Seifert, FOUR runs

full toss on off, mid-off and cover in, and while Seifert doesn't get all of this, he has enough on it to clear those two men. The short boundaries do the rest, and they get four for this. Boundaries are tied now

0.2
1w
Jordan to Seifert, 1 wide

Full and wide, nearly a yorker, Seifert holds his stance, which means this is called wide even though it is slightly wide of the tram line

0.1
2
Jordan to Seifert, 2 runs

Seifert tries to get inside the line and ramp it wide of fine leg. He doesn't get all of this low full toss. Gets a couple, though

It is Seifert and Guptill for New Zealand. Not Munro. Right. Here we go. Jordan in. Third man in, fine leg back

Did anyone mention boundary countback? Looks like Chris Jordan is loosening up. He is stretching, he is bowling practice balls, he doesn't want to bowl a loosener or a wide. So the abolition of the boundary countback rule was done only for knockout games. Which means this match can be decided on a boundary countback. As of now, England have 22, New Zealand 21

end of over 117 runs
ENG: 17/0CRR: 17.00 

So England get 17. That's two more than they did in the World Cup final Super Over

This one is a much smaller ground, though, and you would back New Zealand to get it. Who will bowl the over for eng;and? Who are New Zealand's batsmen?

Southee to Morgan, 2 runs

Morgan looks to make room, Southee smears in a low full toss and follows him. All Morgan can do is put it into the leg side for a couple

Bairstow tries it again, but Southee squeezes it under his bat. Bairstow can't get under it, and he gets just the single

Southee to Bairstow, SIX runs

Full and straight, misses the yorker length here, and Bairstow gets right under it. He is deep in his crease to facilitate getting under it, and sends it sailing back over Southee's head

Southee to Morgan, 1 run

Nearly a yorker on leg stump. Neither gives him the length nor room, dug out to deep midwicket for one
