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.

Southee to Benn, 1 run

he gets bat on it and angled away to backward point. Oram jumps on it and hold on to the ball as they sprint one. And that's it the game is tied! We will now have the first ever super over to settle the teams.

2 runs for the win. Only 1 needed for a tie. The tension around the ground is unbearable

Southee to Benn, FOUR runs

fuller and wide delivery which Benn takes a swipe at. It catches a thick outside edge and runs fine away for four! Light at the end of the tunnel for West Indies

6 runs needed off the last 2 balls now. Or 5 runs for a tie

Southee to Taylor, OUT

swing and a miss and they try and run but it's suicide really as McCullum rolls the ball against the stumps

Fidel Edwards run out (†McCullum) 1 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50
Southee to Edwards, 1 run

makes contact and driven through the off-side but picked up a deep cover. Just one and huge cheers from the crowd

7 off 4 now

Southee to Edwards, no run

short of a length and Edwards misses with the pull shot

Fidel Edwards to the crease

Southee to Findlay, OUT

pitched up and going away from the batsmen. He takes a wild swipe at it and the ball just nicks off the toe and McCullum gathers the ball. First blood to the Kiwis

Shawn Findlay c †McCullum b Southee 19 (31m 17b 2x4 0x6) SR: 111.76

Southee to bowl the last over

Kyle Mills 4-0-27-1

7 runs needed off the last over

Mills to Findlay, 1 run

pulled away through square leg and they take one more

Mills to Taylor, 1 run

bottom edge squirts past McCullum and they pick up another

Mills to Taylor, 2 runs

straight drive down the ground and it looks like just one. They turn quick and come back for a second and Mills cannot gather the ball at the stumps to complete the run-out

Mills to Taylor, no run

slower ball outside off stump and the batsmen misses

Mills to Taylor, FOUR runs

improvised shot from Taylor as he shuffles across his stumps before angling the bat and leaning the ball over the short leg fielder using the pace of the bowler. Runs away for four

Mills to Findlay, 1 run

good ball in to his body but it's blocked away to the leg-side and they hurry a single

The West Indies team are sitting on the edge of their seats outside the pavilion. The Kiwi crowd are buzzing with excitement. Kyle Mills is being entrusted with the penultimate over
