The Curse of the Kiwis

Seven runs needed off six balls. Seven wickets in hand. Ross Taylor, who has played more T20 matches than the rest of his side combined, on strike. Surely, New Zealand couldn't lose from that kind of position again, right?

Wrong. New Zealand had a complete meltdown in the last over of the innings again! Then, of course, as is tradition, they lost in the Super Over.

The Aussies, usually, crush their opponents when the pressure spikes and the game goes into the last over. The Kiwis, however, are the opposite. They keep managing draws and then losing in the tie-breaker. It certainly makes for spectacular and thrilling matches but it really sucks for the Kiwis.
