New Zealand knocked out after Super Over

They took the New Zealand spirit, trampled on it, and handed over the broken pieces along with their boarding passes

Scorecard summary
West Indies139/10(19.3 overs)
New Zealand139/7(20 overs)

Epic win for West Indies and they have ensured New Zealand have been knocked out of the tournament. Taylor did his best, helping his team make 17, a tough ask but Southee bowled length and also bowled too full when it mattered.

Ross Taylor: We probably should have won it in normal time, but credit to West Indies. to score 18 of five balls is pretty awesome. When the first ball is a no ball that goes for six it ruins the over, that's cricket and we're going home now.

Sammy: I think we'll stay for a while after and watch the next game very closely. Marlon Samuels is my go to man in pressure situations, he's suffering from a bad shoulder so that's why he doesn't bowl more.

Sunil Narine is the Man of the Match. "It's nice to be back in the wickets and bowling good, hopefully we have another game to play. it was a total team effort. Marlon did a very good job bowling and then batted superbly."

That's all we have for you from this game but there's England v Sri Lanka beginning shortly and England must win that to make the semi-finals. do join us for that one. Cheers.

all over, low full toss dispatched over deep midwicket, Guptil leaps but in vain as it evades him by inches, can't prevent it from going over the ropes. Takes the score to 19 and seals victory for West Indies

Southee to Gayle, (no ball) SIX runs

smashed over long-off for a big one, round the wicket and over the long-off boundary. Oh dear, it's a no-ball, he's overstepped, freehit coming

Who is it going to be for New Zealand? Southee it is. Both teams have brought in quicker substitute fielders for the Super Over. Kane Williamson is in for someone, and West Indies had Smith, who was there in the final over of the match as well.

"Excellent point by Simon Doull (@sdoull) - WI need only 17 to win, not 18, as they have hit more boundaries than NZ" A tie in the Super Over will mean West Indies will take home the points.

Gayle and Samuels are the two men West Indies have sent out. Fine leg up

Dwayne Smith was the man, the substitute fielder in for Rampaul. We have a Super Over now, a tie is what we have for now. It had to come down to this. Otis Gibson's having a talk with Pollard and Gayle. New Zealand to bat now.

Samuels to Bracewell, 1 run, OUT

full toss and it's flicked towards deep square leg, it's Super Over folks, they pick a single and Bracewell is run out on the second run, a direct hit from the deep

Doug Bracewell run out (sub [DR Smith]) 1 (13m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 100

Super Over? We need to see. 2 in 1, and it's Bracewell on strike. The fielders have moved in a little to prevent the two.

Samuels to Taylor, 1 run

ooh fired it quick on middle, got an inside edge onto the pads, just the single, 2 in 1 now

Marlon pulls out of his run-up, saw Taylor make an initial movement

Taylor's brought it down to 3 off 2. Gayle, Sammy and Marlon have a discussion again. Third man is now inside the circle

19.4

Samuels to Taylor, SIX runs

plays the scoop and it goes all the way, it's not his favourite shot but he pulls it off superbly, full toss on the pads, bowled at 127kmph and he used the pace to scoop it over the fine-leg boundary for six, what a shot

9 off 3 needed

misfield by Narine, he's been sloppy in the field today though very good with the ball, clips it towards short fine, he concedes an extra run, two in all

14 off the final over, is it too much? Are we going to have another Super Over? The loser of this match goes out of the competition. A conference of sorts out in the middle. Sammy, Samuels, Russell, Gayle are having a talk. Sammy has to decide between Samuels and Russell. He have the ball to Russell initially, but then decided it was Marlon who was going to bowl it. That quicker ball is something New Zealand will have to watch out for. Short fine in place

ooh, a dot ball, the carrom ball, got across and dropped it into the leg side, thought of the single but it just wasn't there

Narine to McCullum, OUT

Nathan holes out, Narine picks up his third, the pressure grows on New Zealand, he had to go for it and found deep midwicket, couldn't connect as well and got more height than distance
