England have sealed their T20 International series against New Zealand in thrilling fashion after winning the fifth and final match in a Super Over.

In what was a repeat of this summer's World Cup final, a one over eliminator was needed to decide a winner.

Batting first, the hosts posted 146 for 5 after the match was reduced to 11 overs a side.

England then ended their overs on the same score before posting 17 runs in the Super Over.

The tourists then restricted the Blackcaps to just eight runs in six balls.

It means England win the series 3-2.
