Pakistan beat New Zealand to keep semi-final hopes alive
Thursday, 27 June 2019 - 8:37
Pakistan kept their hopes of a World Cup semi-final place alive as they moved to within a point of England with a six-wicket victory over New Zealand.
Babar Azam's 101 saw Pakistan home in front of a partisan crowd at Edgbaston after Shaheen Afridi had ripped through New Zealand's top order.
Jimmy Neesham's unbeaten 97 had given New Zealand a chance on a slow pitch.
But Pakistan's win with five balls to spare leaves hosts and pre-tournament favourites England in more danger.
Only wins against New Zealand and India in their final two group games will be enough to guarantee England a semi-final place.
