Commentary

Hang on for the quotes from the post-match ceremony.

Man of the Match is McCullum: "I got a start and it was a pretty good surface. I have been guilty in the past of not carrying on. Will take a lot from today. I have been probably not been hitting the ball as I would have liked,. today got the balance right. It's amazing turn around for us. We have two quality teams here; if one teams plays good quality cricket as we did today and as Pakistan did the other day, the margin can be like this."

Younis: McCullum and Guptill had a good partnership and Mccullum went all the way. In our batting, we lost couple of quick wickets. First Afridi and then Kamran .. and then we collapsed. They were very fantastic in the fielding department and we have to improve our fielding."

Vettori: "We talked about some key things from the last game that we needed to improve on. The partnership between Guptill and McCullum was key. The fielding can make such a difference to how the bowlers feel. TAylor catch and Guptill run out. We have talked about our top batsmen playing on and it was fantastic how McCullum played."

That's it from us. Alvida.
