Pre-match chat: Colin Munro says teammates left bemused after another 'super over' defeat

New Zealand batsman Colin Munro says his Blackcaps teammates are kicking themselves after enduring another heartbreaking 'super over' defeat to India in Wellington. 

For the second time in as many matches, a 'super over' was required to decide the winner of their Twenty20 contest, after both sides scored 165 from their 20 overs

Indian captain Virat Kohli then bunted two runs down the ground and hit Tim Southee for four to take India to 16/1 and a 4-0 series lead with one match remaining. 

But the match shouldn't have gone to a 'super over' as New Zealand threw the match away from a winnable position. 

After an impressive knock of 64 by Munro, the Blackcaps looked set for victory at 159/3, requiring seven runs from the final over to win. 

Yet they lost four wickets in six balls to finish 165/7, sending the match into the 'super over.'

"We're all sitting in the sheds, talking about it and hurting that we have let two games like that slip," admitted Munro. 

"It's just one of those things. 'Super over' is a bit of luck to be fair. 

"Obviously there's still got to be some execution with the ball and with the bat, and for players to take that responsibility, but I think once we get on a roll, and when we win one, then who knows what happens with the next one?

"There's a few guys that are hurting. But we are tight in our group and we will bounce back, come Sunday hopefully."

New Zealand has now lost seven of the eight 'super over' matches they've contested. Four of those defeats have come in the last seven months and their lone win came in a T20 against Australia in 2010. 

Munro also lept to the defence of Southee, who has bowled the last three 'super overs' for the Blackcaps. 

"Southee is the best option to bowl in the super over. pretty inexperienced bowling unit. It shouldn't have gone to the super over, if i'm being honest.

"Tim is an experienced bowler, he knows what is he doing, he actually wants the ball in his hand. 

"It is not an easy role to come and bowl especially when we ended with 12 or 13 middle-range 'super over' and he is bowling to probably to the two best T20 batters in the world."

The final T20 game of the series is in Mount Maunganui on Sunday before a three-match one-day international series starts in Hamilton on February 5.
