ICC World Twenty20 - 1st semi final

New Zealand v Pakistan

Pakistan won by 6 wickets (with 7 balls remaining)

3.5

Sohail Tanvir to Vincent, SIX, thumped! A fraction too short from Tanvir and he is deposited into the brewery for his sins! That's a big hit, clears the stand by a distance

New Zealand 25/0   L Vincent 13* (15b 1x6)   Sohail Tanvir 1.5-0-12-0

9.5

Fawad Alam to Styris, SIX, only just slightly short but Styris does not miss out - freeing his shoulders to pull strongly in front of square

New Zealand 72/1   SB Styris 16* (7b 1x4 1x6)   Fawad Alam 1.5-0-16-1

14.4

Fawad Alam to McMillan, SIX, hello, massive, to coin a Mark Nicholasonian phrase - a huge swing straight over long-off

New Zealand 102/4   CD McMillan 10* (4b 1x4 1x6)   Fawad Alam 2.4-0-27-1

16.4

Mohammad Hafeez to Taylor, SIX, short on off, heaved to the leg-side and some very welcome runs for New Zealand

New Zealand 115/7   LRPL Taylor 15* (9b 1x6)   Mohammad Hafeez 0.4-0-9-0

19.2

Mohammad Asif to Taylor, SIX, Taylor steps out now and plants his front foot wide to give himself room to drive long and hard over long-on

New Zealand 136/8   LRPL Taylor 30* (19b 1x4 2x6)   Mohammad Asif 3.2-0-27-0
