New Zealand Beat Pakistan, Qualify For Semifinals


New Zealand stormed into the semifinals of the World T20 with third successive victory in Group 2 yesterday after opener Martin Guptill smacked 80 off 48 balls to set up a 22-run win against Pakistan.

The Kiwis posted a strong 180 for five before restricting Pakistan to 158-5 off 20 overs on a sporting wicket at the Punjab Cricket Association ground in Mohali.

The win extended the Kiwis' unbeaten streak in the tournament and also ensured them a place in the last four, their second semifinal of a global event since the last year.
