You would be on fairly safe ground to suggest that New Zealand cricketers must be sick to death of Super Overs.

As if losing 5-0 at home to India in the Twenty20 series was not bad enough, Kane Williamson's men contrived to lose two of those games – in a row – by the dreaded extra over that is played after a tied-match.

It was only last summer that they were beaten by hosts England in the 50-over World Cup after a match that was tied twice at Lord's. Once in regulation time, when both sides scored 241, and then again in the Super Over – only for the Black Caps to lose by virtue of having scored less boundaries.

Then, just four months later, the same two teams were at it again with England again coming out on top in the Super Over at the series-deciding T20 clash in Auckland.

On their own turf again, this time taking on Virat Kohli's side, an all-too familiar story unfolded.

The first two matches in Auckland were dominated by India with both bat and ball – as the tourists won by six wickets and seven wickets, respectively.

Then followed two remarkable matches which New Zealand contrived to thrown away match-winning positions.

In Hamilton, Ross Taylor needed a single off the last ball to win the match in regulation time but only managed an inside edge onto his stumps. Rohit Sharma went on to smash two sixes off of the final two balls of the Super Over to seal a thrilling victory.

While in Wellington, New Zealand could only manage 13-1 in the extra over and Kohli was able to guide his side home to another victory.

And to compound the hosts' misery, they were then edged out of the fifth and final match in Mount Maunganui on Sunday by seven runs as India completed the first ever 5-0 clean-sweep in a T20I series.
