India vs New Zealand: – Rohit Sharma explains why Team India opted for Jasprit Bumrah in Super Over

There were a few talking points in the game with one being Bumrah given the responsibility to bowl the crucial Super Over. Bumrah had a torrid day with the ball as he conceded 45 runs in four overs and returned wicket-less. This was Bumrah’s second-most expensive outing in the shortest format after he gave away 47 runs against Windies in 2016.

Mohammed Shami, on the other hand, bowled a sensational last over during the Kiwis chase to force the match into Super Over. He picked up the wickets of Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor and somehow managed to defend 9 runs after being hit for six off the first ball. Despite this, skipper Virat Kohli handed over the ball to Bumrah and the right-arm pacer conceded 17 runs in the Super Over.
