Vivek Shyamala: "NZ are ahead with the number of boundaries here. seems like they have learnt their lessons."

11.29pm Think back to three balls ago. Kane Williamson on strike on 95, with New Zealand needing two off four balls. Would anyone have imagined what happened next? Williamson is helmeted up again, already, ready to come in to face the Super Over.

Shami to Taylor, OUT

bowled him, this is going into a Super Over! What a finish. Full outside off, almost in the blockhole, around fiftth-stump in line. Taylor looks to slog into the leg side, and inside-edges into his stumps.

Ross Taylor b Mohammed Shami 17 (23m 10b 1x4 1x6) SR: 170

The scores are tied. Could this go into a Super Over? Only fine leg is back now as everyone else comes up to savde the single.

Shami to Seifert, 1 bye

another play and miss! Another short ball outside off, and the bounce is steep once more. Seifert is off his feet, looking to slash, but the bounce beats his edge. Taylor immediately sets off for the bye, Seifert responds, and Rahul, rolling the ball to the stumps at his end, misses

Shami to Seifert, no run

short outside off. The field was set for the short ball. It was there for the slash, but this is a new batsman, and he's a little late on it and he misses

Well, well. Two off three balls. Tim Seifert arrives at the crease. A dot ball will amp up the pressure on him. third man and fine leg are back. Mid-off is up.

Shami to Williamson, OUT

gone! Out of nowhere! Shami bangs in a short ball outside off stump. He has a gully in place, and there's a gap between that fielder and the keeper. Looks to dab it there, but doesn't get enough on it, and Rahul can fall to his right and snap up the edge near his right shoulder

Kane Williamson c †Rahul b Mohammed Shami 95 (68m 48b 8x4 6x6) SR: 197.92

Two to win, Williamson is on 95. Can he...

Shami to Taylor, 1 run

looks for the blockhole now, just outside off, whipped to long-on

Shami to Taylor, SIX runs

probably not. Full-toss, angling into off stump, and Taylor clears his front leg and muscles this all the way over the leg-side boundary, to the right of deep midwicket

New Zealand need nine. Can Mohammed Shami deny them?

Bumrah to Taylor, 1 run

full on off stump, whipped to deep midwicket, and New Zealand need nine off the last over to win this.

Bumrah to Williamson, 1 run

in the blockhole again, on off stump. Jabbed to backward point

Bumrah to Williamson, FOUR runs

shot! Bumrah had sent fine leg back, and he more or less nailed this middle-and-leg yorker. Williamson steps across, flicks - if he misses, he's bowled - and beats the diving fine leg fielder to his right

Bumrah to Taylor, 1 run

near-yorker on middle stump, clipped to the left of deep backward square leg

Bumrah to Taylor, FOUR runs

bam. Well done by Taylor. Another full-pace length ball, but Taylor has shuffled across in advance to be able to take it from outside off stump and whip it to the forward square leg boundary

Bumrah to Taylor, no run

not this ball. Taylor must have expected the slower ball, but he got the full-pace length ball in the corridor, Test-match style. A bit of leg-cut, and it beats his outside edge as he looks to drive into the covers

Third man and fine leg inside the circle for Bumrah. We'll probably see lots of slower ones.

Danish: "Feel like Chahal has done his part in his last over. Bumrah and Shami somehow have to gather themselves (esp. Bumrah) and keep it together for another 5 minutes each!"
