New Zealand 238 for 7 (Horne 59, Mayers 3-42, Beaton 3-47) beat West Indies 237 (Hosein 54, Brathwaite 53, Quinn 3-54) by 3 wickets
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details
New Zealand blasted through to the semi-finals and knocked West Indies out of the tournament in a dramatic finale to their quarter-final in Townsville, where New Zealand needed four runs from the last ball of their chase and Ish Sodhi struck the winning boundary. New Zealand had to find 18 runs from the 50th over and at seven wickets down, West Indies were clear favourites to progress.
But Sodhi managed a boundary and a single from the medium pace of Justin Greaves, and his partner Jacob Duffy picked up a leg bye to leave 12 runs required from three balls. Sodhi struck a six, a two and a four to complete the dramatic win as New Zealand overhauled the West Indies total of 237 and moved into the final four of the competition, along with India, Australia and South Africa.
The day had started reasonably well for West Indies, who were sent in, as their openers Kraigg Brathwaite and Sunil Ambris put on 48 for the opening wicket. Brathwaite (53) and Akeal Hosain (54) both contributed half-centuries and despite three wickets to Matthew Quinn, West Indies were able to bat out their overs and posted a challenging 237 when the last batsman was run out from the final ball of the 50th over.
Ronsford Beaton picked up two early wickets in the chase but Ben Horne steadied New Zealand with 59, and Robert O'Donnell (42) and Cam Fletcher (49) kept them in the contest through the middle of the innings. But with ten overs remaining, New Zealand still needed 89 runs, and it was only through the striking of Sodhi at the very end that they triumphed.
