India Create History, Clean Sweep Series 5-0 Against New Zealand

Shivam Dube had been blasted for 34 runs in one over by Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor. Both batsmen stitched a 99-run stand and Seifert notched up his third fifty. It seemed New Zealand were on course to break their losing streak and salvage some pride. Ish Sodhi harboured hopes of an unbelievable third Super Over when he launched Thakur for two big sixes but the bowler held his nerve and India won the fifth and final Twenty20 International at the Bay Oval by seven runs to become the first nation in history to achieve a 5-0 whitewash in a bilateral Twenty20 International series.
