Chris Jordan starred as England got the better of New Zealand in another super over, prevailing by nine runs after a truncated thriller in the fifth and final Twenty20 international in Auckland.

Four months on from their nerve-shredding ICC World Cup final, the teams found themselves on familiar terrain as they were deadlocked after an 11-over shootout, shortened because of intermittent showers at Eden Park.

England beat New Zealand in super over to win T20 series – as it happened

Jordan’s last-ball four ensured England levelled New Zealand’s 146 and the paceman then held his nerve with the ball after Jonny Bairstow and Eoin Morgan had each bludgeoned a six to lift England to 17 in the super over.

Despite sending down a wide with his second delivery, Jordan bowled expert lengths to restrict New Zealand to 8-1 in reply, helping England seal a 3-2 series victory.
