Tune into ESPN Match Day to find out what went wrong for Pakistan in that manic chase, north-east corner of the web page.

10.50pm A shoddy batting display from Pakistan, to say the least, save Sharjeel Khan. A blistering start from Sharjeel but Pakistan have ended in a disastrous whimper. New Zealand weren't sensational with the ball, frequent and regular loose deliveries, but were good in the field and field placements and stuck to the basics. Pakistan failed to find the boundary in the last 5.1 overs, symbolic of their struggles. Akmal and Shehzad just tightened up in the middle. Nonetheless, credit to NZ for keeping it simple. Not much to say, except for the fact that Pakistan lost it more than NZ winning it.

Guptill, the Man of the Match: "A bit of tightness in the hamstring (reason for being off the field). We found early that the wicket was good than what we have been playing on. Wanted to be aggressive and it paid off for us. Got to keep playing the same way, we got enough power in our batting line-up to keep going. The new ball came on a bit more, hopefully we can keep it going."

Kane Williamson: "Nice to play on a really good surface, the batting unit played their roles really nicely and the bowlers pulled it back nicely after a tough start. Slightly above par, 180 wicket on any wicket can be a touch chase. They certainly played well in the first 6. We played on a couple of wickets that spun viciously but the spinners adapted here. Good bunch of lads, nice we are playing well and our strengths have been playing some smart cricket.

Shahid Afridi: "First of all, want to congratulate him (Williamson). The bowlers bowled well in the middle, we played well in the first 6 but after that we didn't. Easily we could have scored more than 6 but we didnt. We tried to hit the ball, tried to go for the boundary and we played a lot of dot balls. We still keep repeating the same mistakes, every game we are making the mistakes. We have to forget this game and focus on Australia. "

Milne to Sarfaraz, 1 run

another full toss on middle and leg, not sure what more you can ask for. Sarfraz mows to midwicket for a run. New Zealand have qualified for the semis in the process

McClenaghan to Sarfaraz, 1 run

smeared to midwicket and that should be the game.

McClenaghan to Sarfaraz, 2 runs

another brace. A low full toss on leg, can there be a worse delivery? But all Sarfraza can do is flick to fine leg for two. All gone to pieces

a good bouncer on middle, swatted away to square leg. Just the two. Stunning end-over bowling

Shahed : "Pakistan should've sent Sarfaraz place of Khalid Latif, may be. " - Definitely

McClenaghan to Malik, 1 run

very full on middle, not sure the shot selection of that with four fielders deep on the leg side. Worked down to fine leg

McClenaghan to Malik, 2 runs

a full toss outside off, but Malik walks across and works to square leg. Just the two

Sushil: "Not conceding a boundary in the 16,17 and 18th over of a T20 game is some serious death bowling."

short on middle and leg, slogged away straight to deep midwicket
