India took the match to the final over, when they needed 16 runs from Tim Southee's six deliveries, but the veteran Black Caps seamer delivered in the crunch.

Once Shankar was dismissed, Rishabh Pant (28 from 12 balls) took over and blitzed three sixes to keep India's momentum going but he was the first of four wickets to fall in as many overs as New Zealand hit back.

Having said that, it was a 63-run unbeaten partnership for the seventh wicket between Dinesh Karthik (33) and Krunal Pandya (26) which saw India stay alive in the game till the last three balls of the match.

Exploiting batting-friendly conditions at a small ground, New Zealand cut the Indian attack to shreds to post an imposing 212 for four in the series-deciding third Twenty20 global, here Sunday.

It was also a vital knock from Munro, whose position in the New Zealand side ahead of the World Cup had been in question after a string of failures in the ODI and Twenty20 matches against India.

Runs came thick and fast as skipper Kane Williamson contributed 27 and Colin de Grandhomme produced a crucial 30-run cameo off 16-balls. The denied single by Karthik also attracted a lot of traction on Twitter but one has to agree that he did his best to take India to their first T20I series win against New Zealand.
