on bowl-out over, one in progress?

As India stutter starting their hunt for 162 runs and a series win, the twenty 20 between NZ and West indies ends in thrilling fashion. After a low score from the Windies, the Kiwis could not do much better- in fact no better at all, but also no worse. Match tied, a bowlout would decide who won. After three rounds (thats 6 bowlers bowling 2 balls each) with not a single ball hitting the stumps, the policeman struck twice in two and eventually the kiwis won! So the windies bowlers finished with no hits from 8 attempts!

Despite myself, I am interested- I would like to watch a Twenty-20 right proper, at least to know if it is as much fun as it threatens to be.

I want to watch the highlights of this, can't imagine it being anything other then perfectly hillarious.

i couldnt believe it either -- i'd like to think that I - with my dibbly dobbly seam up deliveries - could have managed better than none of eight.
