Definitely deserved, that Man-of-the-Match award. Thanks for joining us for this thrilling match. Do hop over to the other tab for the second match of the day. Okay bye

Presentation Ian Butler, the MoM: "We just hung in there, and thankfully it went our way. One of the biggest games I have played for New Zealand."

Daniel Vettori: We kept ourselves in with a spirited bowling performance. We kept attacking, the bowling changes worked, and it worked for us. It was always going to be tough work against the quality of Pakistan spinners, and we knew once we got to 133 we were in."

Shahid Afridi: "A great game of cricket, we all enjoyed. Salman Butt played a mature innings, New Zealand bowlers bowled really well. So did rehman, Hafeez and Ajmal."

what a finish. Just what this tournament needed. New Zealand were so spirited in the defence. Spare a thought for Salman Butt, who hit two boundaries in the last over, despite his limitation against the short ball, which earner New Zealand two dot balls in the last over. And what a choice to bring in Mills, Butler, Rehman and Sami for this game: between them they took nine wickets, and Butt took the decisive one. Hold on for the presentation ceremony. And oh by the way, exciting news for cricket fans in the USA - the first ever Twenty20 internationals on American soil will take place in Florida on May 20, 22 and 23rd when Sri Lanka will play New Zealand in three Twenty20 matches.

Butler to Abdur Rehman, OUT, no we won't! Rehman gets a dream ball, length ball, angled into the pads, and he lofts it into the leg side. They run for dear life, but it has carried to deep square leg for a simple catch

Two off one required. Water bottle comes out. Gould sends him back. Third man, fine leg back. Five men in the circle. Will we have a tie?

Butler to Salman Butt, 1 bye, yorker, yorker, beats him as he makes room, Rehman steals a bye, Hopkins is late in going for the throw, and even though he hits the stumps direct, Rehman is in. Cheekily, after it has been referred to the third umpire, he is looking for the overthrow. Not on, sir. The ball is dead already

Butler to Salman Butt, FOUR runs, and Butt strikes back! charges down the pitch and cuts this short ball over point. He got the room here. Styris gives in a spirited chase from sweeper-cover, and the ball spins away from him upon bouncing. What a game

Butler to Salman Butt, no run, bouncer, and he makes room and misses. Not even high enough to be one for the over

Eleven required now. New Zealand scored 11 off their last over. Butler to bowl now. What a finish. Third man and fine leg both in. Goes round the wicket
