An allusive first series win in India will have to wait for the BLACKCAPS after coming up six runs short in a rain-affected third and deciding T20 in Trivandrum.
Set 68 to win from eight overs, the visitors took the chase to the last over where they failed to knock off the final 19 runs for victory.
As it happened...
Woah. Second ball and Munro smashes one for a huge six. BLACKCAPS 7-0 after 3 balls. #indvnz— BLACKCAPS (@BLACKCAPS) November 7, 2017
